This lovely tomato consomme has just the right amount of spice.
Place the chopped tomatoes, shallots, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and basil leaves into a food processor and blitz for 8-10 seconds until just broken up but not pureed – a bit like gazpacho. Season then pulse again and check the seasoning once more.
Line a colander with a large piece of muslin then set the colander over a large bowl. Tip the mixture into the muslin and seal with pegs or string, then place in the fridge and leave to drip through for at least 4 hours or overnight, without pressing or squeezing at all.
Lift the muslin bag off, don’t discard the contents, you can make a great tomato sauce with it – just add a little olive oil and cook fro 15 minutes. Check the tomato consommé for seasoning, adding extra Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco as desire. Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
Ladle into a bowl to serve, then garnish with the pieces of tomato and a scattering of tiny basil leaves.
