Nothing keeps the freezing cold out like a nice hearty soup.
One of our favourite soups are from The Long Table Restaurant in Stellenbosch with their famous the Roasted Roma Tomato Soup.
Here is my version:

You’ll need:

  • 500g roma tomatoes (I’ve also used 2 normal tomatoes)
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • Garlic chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 50g tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 table spoons fat free plain yoghurt
  • Salt and Pepper


Put the onion, tomatoes and garlic mix on a baking tray and drizzle with brown sugar and olive oil.

Roast at 200°C until the mixture is brown.

Place the mix in a soup pot and add the stock, 1 teaspoon cumin and the tomato paste.

Allow to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring regularly.

Blitz the soup with a hand blender and add 3 tablespoons of plain yoghurt and stir until the soup is creamy.

Simmer for a couple of minutes and season with salt and pepper.

Garnish with crumbed feta and chives.

Served with toasted pitas.

 Wine match:

Sauvignon Blanc or a lightly wooded Sauvignon Blanc if the soup is very creamy.
