Fresh ginger adds a pleasant and unexpected jolt to fresh tomato soup, along with a flash of cayenne, all mellowed by the tart creaminess of yogurt.


  • 25 g/1 oz butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped


  1. Heat the butter in a saucepan and sauté the garlic, onion and ginger until the onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the juices reduce slightly, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the stock and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or so, then purée (and sieve if desired).
  3. Stir the yogurt and add several spoonfuls of the purée
