Australian Bush Tomato Soup

This isn't your average tomato soup due to 1 insanely delicious ingredient - The Bush Tomato. This fruit comes from a species of nightshade and has been used by Indigenous Australians for many many years. While Bush Tomatoes are similar to the tomato's we are used to eating .they offer up a stronger flavor closer to that of a sun dried tomato. This soup is a creamy and flavorful treat that pairs perfectly with a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich made with a sharp cheese.

Ingredients 1 TBSP Smoked Olive Oil 1 Onion, chopped 1 clove Garlic, crushed 2 TBSP ground Bush Tomato 4 slices of bacon, diced 10 Chopped Tomatoes 1 TBSP Sugar 1 Cup Chicken Stock 1 TSP Icelandic Flaky Sea Salt

1 TSP Mountain Pepper Natural Yoghurt, to serve Chopped chives, to serve


  • Cook the bacon to desired crispness then heat the oil in a large pan. Cook the onion and garlic until soft.

  • Add the bush tomato, cooked bacon, chopped tomatoes and sugar. Simmer for 30 minutes (the tomatoes will breakdown during the cooking process).

  • Add in the chicken stock, salt & pepper and bring to a boil.

  • Using a processor or blender puree the soup until the tomato skins are incorporated.

  • Lastly serve soup in bowl and garnish with yoghurt and chives.
