Preheat oven to 375°F Put the tomato halves on a baking tray with the cut side up, together with the garlic clove. Drizzle some Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain over the tomatoes and the garlic clove, add the salt and black pepper. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
Remove and let cool. Peel the garlic clove and put in a food processor or blender along with all the other ingredients from the baking tray, including the juice. Add the chicken stock, basil and vinegar and blend for at least 3 minutes at high speed.
Pass it through a sieve or a fine colander over a bowl, pushing all the ingredients through the sieve using a small saucepan. Transfer to a saucepan to heat. Bring to the boil and add salt if necessary.
Presentation of the dish:
