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.

roasted tomatoes and 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 have also shared 3 more tomato soup varieties:

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.

  1. I love this recipe. I’m usually very busy during the week due to be a teacher at a boarding school. This meal is the perfect meal after a long day or even a late day when I may get home after 7pm. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and it’s heaven. I will also add some dried basil to give it some oomph. Thanks for the share.

    • thanks kat. agree with you. basil goes very well. i also make basil tomato soup. though i have not added the recipe and basil does wonders to a simple tomato soup.

  2. The measurements came out wrong for me. I weighed the garlic and tomatoes. One clove of garlic weighed 4 grams, and three tomatoes weighed 563g. I ended up using three tomatoes and 2 garlic cloves based on weight.

    • sky, it depends on the size of the veggies. an indian variety of large tomatoes cannot be equaled to the tomatoes or garlic one gets in western countries. thats why i give the weight in grams too. good to know that you used the weight measures. and i hope you liked the soup.

  3. Came out superb…

    • thankyou 🙂

  4. Hello,
    Can I use garlic salt instead of fresh garlic

    • yes you can use. but adjust the salt quantity accordingly

      • Also, can I roast the tomatoes in a toaster oven if yes how long and what temperature?
        Thanks I can’t wait to try this soup this evening

        • welcome, you can try but i don’t know for how long and at what temperature.

  5. 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!

    • thanks erin for the feedback.

  6. 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 !

    • thanks tanya for sharing positive feedback. glad to know.

  7. 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.

    • welcome jacinta. thanks for sharing your positive feedback, variation and suggestions.

  8. 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.

    • thanks spiky for the suggestion.

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

    • anamika, give it a try. i am sure you will like it.

      • i tried it today…. It was delicious.. I did a small change by adding pumpkin as well…. It still tasted so well… Thanks….

        • welcome anamika. glad to know this.

  10. 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?

    • thanks purva. you can use vegetable oil like sunflower oil or safflower oil.

  11. 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

    • thanks for the feedback aparna.

  12. 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

    • 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 –

  13. 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!

    • 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.

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

  15. 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.

    • 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.

  16. 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.

    • thanks nidhi. roasting the tomatoes does give a special flavor to them. glad to know you liked the recipe.

  17. I am yet to try this recipe and your pics gave me the much needed motivation for that! 🙂
    Found you through Blogadda. Happy to follow you. Do visit my space.

    • thanks charul. will visit your space.

  18. I tried this recipe and it was so delicious! And very easy to make! Thanks for sharing.

    • thanks judy. it indeed a simple and easy tomato soup recipe but also delicious at the same time.

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

  20. Your presentation of this soup makes me want to try it!

  21. 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 🙂

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

      • i agree susan

  22. 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.

    • 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.

  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.

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

      • 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?

        • 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.

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

            • welcome ashwini and do let me know.

  24. i always get new and creative ideas from your site.

    • thanks bushra for this positive comment.

  25. 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. 🙂

  26. 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 😀

  27. I am always in for a tomato soup and this roasted version looks really delicious, bookmarked! Lovely clicks Dassana.

  28. 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.

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

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

  42. 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.

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

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