roasted tomato soup recipe: easy roasted tomato soup

roasted tomato soup recipe - tomato soup is an all time favourite of mine. in this soup recipe, tomatoes are roasted. there is another restaurant style tomato soup recipe in the blog where the tomatoes are not roasted but blanched.

soups and saladstwo of a kind that are very rare on my blog… reason being nobody in the home is a soup or salad person except me. so i usually make soups or salads for myself :-)

roasted tomatoes and soup

for the first time i made roasted tomato soup and it was awesome… roasting the tomatoes lend a warm, earthy flavor to the tomatoes which you won’t get in the regular tomato soup.


the tomatoes are sliced and then roasted in the oven with some garlic and olive oil….

along with the roasted tomatoes, the juices of the tomatoes and garlic with the olive oil is then pureed ….

roasted tomatoes

add a dash of pepper and salt and the soup is ready….. easy and no cooking etc involved.

roasted tomato soup

a simple & easy tomato soup that can be had with some warm bread or baguette. if you don’t like garlic, then just make the soup without garlic. the roasted tomato soup recipe is adapted from ehow.

i am a soup person dasanna.. its very comforting… recently i tried this soup and added some cream and milk.. too good. like the coarsely grinded pepper tempering on the top


dassana November 28, 2013 2

thanks for the feedback aparna.


kirti October 4, 2013 3

hiii dassana
wanted to know 2 things
1.can v prepare this soup if v do not have any kind of oven….

2. does it taste like the one served in hotels


dassana October 4, 2013 4

hi kirti, the soup does not taste like the one served in indian hotels. thats a differently made soup. you can make this without oven. roast the tomatoes on fire like how we roast baingan for baingan bharta. when the skin has charred, place the tomatoes in a bowl of water. when they become cool, peel the charred burnt skin and then proceed with the recipe. you can check this video on fire roasting tomatoes and vegetables –

This is the best tomato soup I’ve ever had! The secret is the garlic–yum! When I pureed the tomatoes, I was skeptical about how tasty it would be, but it turned out to be so flavorful! After I tasted it, I added some tomato puree to make it last and to give it more body, as well as some basil and oregano (but this soup would be fine without it). I can definitely see myself making this soup all the time! Thanks, Dassana!


dassana June 24, 2013 6

thanks diamond. you are right the garlic does add a lot of flavor to the soup and also the fact that the tomatoes are roasted gives the soup a different taste than the regular soup. i also agree that the soup will be fine without adding basil and oregano.


Abby @ The Frosted Vegan April 28, 2013 7

Oh goodness, I love the look of those roasted tomatoes!


Susan October 13, 2012 8

I use sodium-free chicken or vegetable stock instead of water. I also dice up an onion and add to the pan. Don’t forget to add your favorite herbs and spices — basil, tarragon, oregano, etc! For a creamier texture slice and roast a white or sweet potato with the tomatoes.


dassana October 14, 2012 9

thanks susan for all the suggestions you have mentioned. am sure they will make the soup more creamier and tastier. next time i plan to roast both onion, tomatoes and potatoes for the soup.


Nidhi October 8, 2012 10

dassana October 8, 2012 11

Tomato soup is always welcome at my place. I normally make it without roasting. But this roasted version of yours looks awesome. Can’t wait to try it out :)


Susan October 13, 2012 19

Roasting adds so much more flavor to your soup! Definitely worth the time!


dassana October 14, 2012 20

i agree susan


Ashwini September 8, 2012 21

Hi Dassana,
Tried out the recipe yest,came out very good.Minimal ingredients but great taste.The only comment i would like to give is that we need to use really ripe tomatoes,else the soup may turn a little too sour to taste.Thank you.


dassana September 9, 2012 22

thats nice to know ashwini. sometimes food made with minimal ingredients taste awesome.

i did not mention the word ‘ripe tomatoes’ coz i thought it is obvious that one will use ripe tomatoes for making a tomato soup :-)

thanks for the feedback. i will mention the about ripe tomatoes in the ingredients list. may be some folks are really naive in cooking and would not know which tomatoes to use.


Nisa Homey September 6, 2012 23

First of all the first shot is awesome!! ….secondly, I never thought of roasting tomatoes in oven….i am going to try this on pizza this sunday….and lastly I wish I could just take a sip on that soup ….so flavorful and rich…yet healthy.


dassana September 7, 2012 24

thanks nisa. if making this recipe as a pizza sauce, then do add basil, oregano or italian seasoning to the puree.


Ashwini September 9, 2012 25

That is interesting,to use the above recipe as a pizza sauce…apart from adding the spices you mentioned is there anything else that needs to be added to make the sauce?


dassana September 9, 2012 26

just the dry herbs that is basil and oregano or fresh if you can get them. you can also add mixed herbs. the rest of the ingredients stays the same.

but when making soup don’t add herbs unless you like them. the soup will taste like a pizza sauce. you can also roast onions with tomatoes for making the pizza sauce.


Ashwini September 9, 2012 27

Thank you Dassana.will let you know how it came out the next time i make pizza.


dassana September 9, 2012 28

welcome ashwini and do let me know.

Roasted tomatoes add so much more flavor. there’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a rainy day and this would be just perfect today. :)

hemlata September 5, 2012 47

mmmmmm….mouth watering picture.I often roast the garden tomato for the pasta sauce ,fish curry, chutney (I roast onion and green chilly on the side for chutney) but now after i saw your picture i must make this simple healthy soup. THANKS DASSANA .


dassana September 5, 2012 48

thanks hemlata. sometimes while making coconut based masala i also roast the onion, coconut and spices.


Familycook September 5, 2012 49

This is an excellent recipe and I like the ideas of roasting the tomatoes.


Swasthi September 5, 2012 50

lovely clicks! Using olive oil must have given a great flavour to the soup. looks delicious


radha September 5, 2012 51

This sounds delicious. Like the addition of garlic and pepper. The process seems simpler too and you would not have the juice/pulp splashing all over as it simmers which is a huge plus point.


Kanan September 5, 2012 52

Thats really simple and very easy way to make soup. It must be tasting very flavorful from roasting tomatoes with garlic. Nice recipe.


dassana September 5, 2012 53

yes kanan, it is very flavorful and so different than our usual tomato soup.
