Place the roasting tin on a burner keep the mixture bubbling on a low to medium heat. Stir in the stock and the basil (leaving a few leaves for garnish.) Simmer for a couple of minutes and then pour into a food processor. Alternatively you can pour the mixture into a large bowl and use an immersion blender. Blend/process until smooth and then place in the fridge to chill. When you are ready to serve, ladle it into bowls and drizzle with a little good quality extra virgin olive oil, or a tsp of sour cream, and the basil leaves.
