    Red onion and roasted cherry tomato soup

    Here’s a most refreshing and flavoursome soup that is so much better than anything you could buy from a packet, carton or tin. It’s ideal for the early fluid stage after wls but welcome anytime. Sometimes I serve topped with the onion mixture and sometimes with some dry-fried pesto flavoured croutons…and sometimes with both! The garlic is, of course, optional.

    Ingredients
    Metric/US

    1.25g/23/4 lb cherry tomatoes
    3 cloves garlic, chopped (optional)
    4 red onions, finely sliced
    10 basil leaves
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    low-fat olive oil spray
    2 tsp red wine vinegar
    2 tsp brown sugar or Splenda granulated sweetener
    250ml/11/4 cups vegetable stock/bouillon

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C/375 F/gas mark 5. Put the cherry tomatoes, garlic (if used) and 2 of the onions and basil on a large, non-stick roasting tray and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spritz with low-fat olive oil spray and bake for 30-40 minutes until the tomatoes are tender and have browned.

    2. Meanwhile, spritz a pan liberally with the low-fat olive oil spray, add the remaining onions and gently fry for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and just coloured. Add the vinegar and sugar or sweetener, mixing well. Cook for a further 1 minute then set aside.

    3. Blend or liquidise the roasted tomato and onion mixture until smooth. Add half of the onion mixture with the stock and mix well. Reheat until hot enough to serve, tasting and adjusting the seasoning. The soup can be pureed again at this stage until smooth if a non-textured soup is preferred for the very early stages after wls.

    4. Serve the soup hot or warm garnished with the remaining onion.
