Roasted Tomato Soup is a bowl of goodness! Roasting the tomatoes with onions and herbs creates a full-flavored tomato soup. Dunk a grilled cheese or grab a spoon and dig in! A homemade tomato soup recipe that is hard to beat!
This Roasted Tomato Soup may just be my most favorite tomato soup to date. It’s velvety and luscious. Roasting the tomatoes and onions with herbs and oil really does set this soup apart! It’s robust and full of flavor. Blend it all up, swirl in some cream to make it extra decadent and get ready for the best tomato soup you’ve tasted!
What Tomatoes to Use
For this recipe, the main ingredient is pretty obvious: tomatoes! When choosing which tomatoes to use for this recipe, there are several ways to go:
Honestly, out of the three options, I just grab whichever one looks the best in the grocery store at the moment. You want to go for a smaller, more firm tomato like one of the varieties listed above. I find that larger tomatoes tend to have more liquid and water content. For this recipe, we want super concentrated, sweet tomato flavor.
How to Blend
Blending up the roasted tomatoes is going to vary greatly on what equipment you have on hand and how you like the consistency of your tomato soup to be. Here are some options:
- Food processor – this is going to give you a smooth and luscious tomato soup. My go-to option for this recipe! If you want it even smoother after using the food processor, the soup can be strained through a wire mesh to catch any of the tomato skins that didn’t get blended.
- Immersion blender – another great option for getting a smooth consistency! This would be my second go-to choice for blending this soup.
- Blender – use this option if you have a good, high-powered blender. It will be harder to get a really smooth consistency with this option otherwise.
How to Serve
To me, you can’t have tomato soup without a grilled cheese! My Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich is the perfect companion to this tomato soup! I love how versatile this soup recipe is as well. It’s perfect for a cozy, weeknight meal, but can also hold it’s own at the holiday table. A little Christmas Eve soup, anyone?
However you serve it, it is heart-warming, comforting and delicious. Get those grilled cheese ready!
PS: homemade croutons, fresh basil and some grated parmesan cheese are also great toppings!
