  • Next, pour in the stock, sugar and the whole basil leaves, and leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Transfer your soup to food processor, and liquify until smooth. Transfer back to your pan and add the cream and season well with salt and pepper. You can alter the consistency by adding more boiled water if necessary.
  • Garnish with a swirl of cream, ground black pepper and a sprig of basil.
  • Serve piping hot with some fresh baked Ciabatta.
