roasted tomato soup recipe with step by step photos – tomato soup is an all time favorite of mine. in this soup recipe, the tomatoes are roasted. there is another restaurant style tomato soup recipe on the blog where the tomatoes are not roasted but blanched.
soups and salads – two of a kind that are very rare on the blog. reason being nobody at home is a soup or salad person except me. so i usually make soups or salads for myself :-)
for the first time when i made this roasted tomato soup, i loved it for awesomeness. after that, i have made this roasted tomato soup many times. roasting the tomatoes lends a warm, earthy flavor to the tomatoes which you won’t get in the regular tomato soup.
this soup recipe is very simple and easy. 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. add a dash of pepper and salt and the soup is ready. easy and no cooking on stove top involved.
for any tomato based dish like a soup or gravy, its always better to use ripe red tomatoes. so that you do not get very sour tasting soup or gravy in the end.
