Cold Tomato Soup with Lemon Sorbet

Cold Tomato Soup with Lemon Sorbet
Recipe type: Soups and Stews
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 2 Cups lemon sorbert, premium quality (not sherbert)
  • 2 1/4 pounds heirloom or roma tomatoes, ripe, washed
  • a 1-inch piece fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • dash of Tabasco
  • 2 sprigs of basil
  1. Immerse the tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds then run under cold water to remove the skins easily.
  2. After you have peeled the tomatoes, cut them into wedges and remove the seeds.
  3. Peel and chop the ginger.
  4. Place a saucepan on the heat with a little olive oil. Add the ginger and cumin, stir with a wooden spoon and add the wedges of peeled tomato.
  5. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes over low heat.
  6. Pour the cooked tomatoes into the bowl of a food processor and liquefy. Taste and correct the seasoning with salt, pepper and Tabasco.
  7. Cool, then refrigerate.
  8. Serve the soup well chilled with a scoop of lemon sorbet and a few chopped basil leaves.

For an interesting twist, try Haagen Daz Lemon Ice Cream instead of sorbet, or make a lemon granita. Lemon ice cream adds a creamy component to this exceptional soup.
