  4. Remove the bay leaf and, using a hand blender or food processor, blend the soup until smooth.
  5. Return the soup to pan. Add in remaining bay leaf, mascarpone, sugar and tomato puree, mixing in.
  6. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. Serve with crusty bread and Flora Gold
