1 kg rich, ripe, red tomatoes, cored

This richly flavored soup is a delightful summer starter. Make sure you use rich, red, ripe tomatoes, sometimes sold as cooking tomatoes.


1.  Skin tomatoes by covering with boiling water for 1 minute then plunging them into iced water. Dice finely.


2.  Cut cucumbers lengthwise and remove seeds. Dice flesh finely. Dice onion and capsicum finely (some food processors do this well). Combine with tomatoes, garlic, beef stock and thyme. Leave to stand for at least 2 hours for flavors to blend. Remove thyme.

3.  Add parsley and lemon juice just before serving. Add freshly ground pepper to taste. Float an ice-cube on top of soup in each bowl.
