For Summer evenings this velouté will make a tasty starter, hot or cold.
It is very healthy and fat-free and evokes the Mediterranean but If you feel a little less healthy, add some single cream.

1 large onion, peeled and sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled
A handful of flat parsley leaves
Salt and pepper
1. Put all the ingredients in a big cooking pot and cook until the tomatoes are tender.
