Chilled Bloody Mary soup with horseradish cream


For the horseradish cream
To serve
  • 2 sticks of celery, finely diced

  • 4 tomatoes, deseeded and finely diced

  • 1 red onion, finely chopped

  • celery leaves

Preparation method

  1. Place the horseradish, shallot, two sticks of celery, chopped tomatoes, celery salt, worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, black pepper and lemon juice into a liquidiser and blend thoroughly until smooth. If time allows place this base mixture in the fridge for 2-3 hours to chill and for the flavours to develop. Strain through a sieve with a metal spoon. Stir in the tomato juice, vodka and sherry.

  2. Just before serving the soup make the horseradish cream. Place the crème fraîche into a bowl and stir in the horseradish and lemon juice. Season to taste.

  3. Divide the red onions, diced celery and tomatoes between four chilled glass serving bowls.

  4. Pour the soup into the bowls, top each with a spoonful of the horseradish cream and garnish with celery leaves.
