Soak your bread in cold water and set it aside. Lightly score the bottoms of 6 tomatoes with a criss-cross. Cover with freshly boiled water for 2 minutes. Drain and allow to cool a little before peeling the skins off. Remove any visible stalks. Add to a blender.

Squeeze out the excess water from your bread and add to the blender with 1 clove of garlic and the zest of half a lemon. Sprinkle in 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt and a generous pinch of pepper. Blitz!

Taste for seasoning and, when happy, strain your soup through a sieve and refrigerate before serving. Sprinkle on basil to finish and enjoy!
