Oyster, tomato and chilli soup

"This soup is the epitome of simple," says Dunn. "Seek out some of the wonderfully smoky Latin American chillies from your nearest spice shop - they really give this soup some oomph (or try herbies.com.au)."

You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil 2 onions, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 20 gm mixed dried chillies (such as chipotle and New Mexico), crushed 600 ml chicken or fish stock 400 gm canned crushed tomatoes 12 oysters To serve: coriander sprigs
