Servings: 3 people
three bowls of tomato soup topped with pomegranate kernels and seeds


  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 onion medium, thinly sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb washed, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 potato washed, peeled and diced into small cubes
  • 4 tomatoes medium, diced into small cubes
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds unsalted
  • 1 pomegranate small, washed, peeled, kernels only


  • In a medium-sized pot, heat the oil on medium heat and fry the onion and fennel, until soft and lightly golden.
  • Stir in the potato and tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
  • Add the cumin powder and black pepper and mix well. 
  • Pour in the water, bring to boil, cover and cook on low heat for 15 minutes or until all the vegetables are cooked through.
  • Finish with the salt.
  • Blend the cooked vegetables in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer into bowls and garnish with seeds and pomegranate kernels. Add the cumin powder and black pepper and mix well.


  • If you're chopping the vegetables using a knife, try and make sure your veggies are similar in size. That way, they will cook evenly
  • Make sure to fry the onion and fennel until softened and lightly brown as this will add a great depth of flavour to the soup
  • You can easily adjust the spiciness of the soup by adding more or less black pepper
  • Make sure to cover the pot after adding the water to stop the soup from reducing too much
  • Blending the soup will create a creamy consistency. You can easily control the consistency of your soup by using the pulse function on your blender
  • You can store this soup in the fridge for around three days or freeze in suitable containers
