1. Melt the butter in a large, lidded saucepan. Add the onions and cook them gently until soft but not brown.
2. Add the tomatoes to the onions with the paprika, sherry, sugar, salt, mint and stock. Stir well, cover and simmer for 30minutes.
3. Cool slightly and then puree in a blender or food processor until smooth, in batches if necessary. Pour the soup through a sieve back into the saucepan. Add extra stock to give the desired consistency and reheat. Serve hot, swirled with whipped cream and garnished with mint leaves.
