I cook the gourmet version of the tomato soup the other way round: cut the tomatoes into quarters and put them in a bowl. Coarsely mix with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and some sugar and olive oil using a hand blender. There should still be pieces of tomato left. Just leave the tomatoes to stand.

You can use fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes for tomato soup.
Frisch Tomatoes, fully ripe and fragrant, are the first choice for this soup.! Cut peeled shallots and garlic finely into cubes, place in a wide, large pot and sweat for 10 minutes until transparent. Lightly caramelize the mixture with sugar, then deglaze with dry white wine and add the prepared tomatoes. Let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes at moderate heat.

tomato soup from fresh tomatoes with pesto and monkfish

Preparation Time

10 Min.

Cook Time

40 Min.


4 tbs basil pesto (see article about making pesto yourself)
2 tbs oliv oil
2 can tomatoes in whole (canned tomatoes or 500 g fresh tomatoes)
1 tsp brown cane sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
4 pinch Pepper
4 pc shallots
1 pc cloves of garlic (or young, green garlic)
120 ml dry white wine (or prosecco)
180 g anglerfish (vegetarian alternative: smoked tufo and crispy fried bread cubes)
20 leaves basil fresh
150 ml sun flower oil (to deep fry the basil leaves)


Prepare the basil pesto and chill it. I always prepare a large amount of pesto and eat it in the coming days with various dishes. That is practical and enriches the everyday life immensely.

Cut the tomatoes into quarters and put them in a bowl, mix them with salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil and some cayenne pepper coarsely with a hand blender and prepare them. I like to leave the tomatoes to stand for 15 minutes so that the taste can develop.

Cut the peeled shallots and garlic into fine cubes. When I get it, I use young green garlic, which has a finer and lighter aroma than adult garlic. Place a saucepan on top and heat two tablespoons of olive oil.

Sweat the shallots and garlic cubes in a pot for 10 minutes until colourless and transparent. Then caramelise lightly with a little sugar and deglaze with white wine.

Add the prepared tomatoes and bring to the boil. Let the soup simmer for 15 – 25 minutes. This is how the flavour of the soup develops best from my experience. If you have any tomato stems left, cook them in the soup, which adds to the fine aroma of the soup.

Season the tomato soup with salt, pepper and sugar. Heat sunflower oil in a second pot and fry the basil leaves briefly, crispy and crispy. Place the crispy basil leaves on a plate with kitchen paper and season with salt. Add some tomato soup and serve.

Poach the prepared monkfish in a saucepan with a little diluted tomato soup. Take care of the temperature: bring the liquid to the boil, remove from the heat, pickle the fish and leave to stand next to the heat. Arrange the tomato soup, add the pesto, pickle the fish and serve decorated with basil leaves.
