roasted tomato soup recipe, how to make roasted tomato soup recipe


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 salads – two 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.

    Super awesome and doesn’t get easier than this! I omitted the sugar and plan on having this as my ‘go to’ for lunch this week. Doesn’t get much healthier than this! Looking forward to trying more recipes!

    I just tried this soup tonight for dinner and it was amazing ! So simple. I was hesitant at first actually because I am not a big fan of tomatoes but this was so good !

  3. Jacinta says

    I just made this and added the roasted red pepper and tomato soup base from Trader Joe’s along with pureed pearl onions. HEAVEN! With a crostini on the side and some large chunks of cheese sprinkled on top. Yum! Thank you for the recipe.

    If you like your tomato soup creamy, you can try using some almond, soy, or hemp milk, by itself or half milk and water… you get the idea. Great recipe, and good for us girls on a budget as well.

  5. Anamika says

    This is so amazing… My mouth was watering while reading this recipe…. So delicious… Cant wait to try it…

  6. Purva says

    Hey, it looks really delicious like all your other dishes. I have a question though – can we substitute olive oil by some other oil? If yes, which?

  7. says

    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

  8. kirti says

    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

    • says

      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!

    • says

      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.

    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.

    • says

      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.

  11. Nidhi says

    I got motivated with your amazing photographs, it looked exceptionally beautiful and tried this recipe. I am personally not very fond of tomato soup but the flavor of roasted tomatoes is just so amazing… Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

  12. says

    I always roast my tomatoes when making tomato soup! The flavor is just so superior in my opinion – this looks exceptionally beautiful!

  13. says

    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 :)

  14. Ashwini says

    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.

    • says

      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.

  15. says

    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.

      • Ashwini says

        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?

        • says

          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.

  16. says

    i just love this tomato, olive oil and garlic wow…. i do make something similar with garlic but this is a slight variation and seems like an interesting one :) must try it! and by the way gorgeous pics as usual 😀

  17. says

    Soups and salads are often made at my place. I am always looking for new recipes and this one sounds great! I like the roasted tomatoes in it.

  18. Eha says

    A couple of decades back I would have laughed had any of my friends called me a ‘soup or salad’ person! Sheesh: one grows up :) ! Lovely simple soup with that extra touch! Can’t wait for the tomatoes to get cheaper or mine to grow :) !

  19. lakshmi balasubramanian says

    I also like tomato soup. This is the easy receipe and will prepared yesturday night. My son like this very much. Thanks a lot Dassana.

  20. hemlata says

    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 .

  21. says

    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.

  22. says

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