Serves 4-6

This soup is not just a standard tomato soup. The apple and celery add to the flavour to make it a bit different. After it is puréed if you like a really smooth soup it can be passed through a sieve.


  • 50g (2oz) butter or margarine
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 500g (1lb) celery
  • 4 small/medium green eating apples
  • 4 tbsp dry sherry – optional
  • 35 fl oz (1¾ pts) chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt & pepper
  • Garnish
  • a little chopped apple
  • a few small celery leaves
  • 2 tbsp single cream


Chop the onion and celery, peel, core and roughly chop the apple, saving a little for garnish if liked.

Melt the butter, cook the onion until softening. Add the tomatoes, celery and apples. Cover and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. Add the stock and simmer for 30-40 minutes then purée in a food processor or with a blender. For a smooth soup pass through a sieve.

Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

To serve: drizzle a little cream on the top of each bowl and sprinkle on a little chopped apple with a small celery leaf if available.

This can be served chilled in the summer.
