roasted tomato soup

Roasted tomato soup recipe with step by step photos. This soup is an all-time favorite of mine. In this soup recipe, the tomatoes are roasted. There is another restaurant style tomato soup 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. The reason being nobody at home is a Soup or salad person except me. So I usually make soups or salads for myself 🙂

roasted tomato soup

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 the stovetop involved.

roasted tomatoes and soup

A simple & easy 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 the Ehow website.

For any tomato-based dish like a soup or gravy, it is always better to use ripe red tomatoes. So that you do not get very sour tasting soup or gravy in the end.

How to make roasted tomato soup

1. Rinse 4 to 5 large tomatoes (530 to 550 grams) in water. now slice the tomatoes and place them in a baking tray. add 6 to 7 medium sized garlic (chopped) also in the tray. If you do not prefer a garlicky flavor, then you can skip garlic or reduce their quantity.

5. Add some crushed black pepper (½ to 1 tsp or as per taste), salt and sugar ( ¼ tsp or according to taste) in the blender. adding sugar depends on the sweetness of tomatoes. If the tomatoes are sweet, then you don’t need to add any sugar.

  1. Hi..love all your recipes soooo much !! For this soup, can I also use ripe cherry tomatoes, if yes then the same quantity ? Please advise. Thanks5 stars

    • thanks kriti. you can use a mix of cherry tomatoes and regular tomatoes. cherry tomatoes are on the sweeter side. so when used with regular tomatoes, there will be a balance of tanginess and sweetness in the roasted tomato soup recipe. so you can use 300 grams of tomatoes and 250 grams of cherry tomatoes. you can even use half-half of each. in fact you can even try making soup with cherry tomatoes only. but it will be like an experimentation.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.4 stars

    • 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.

  4. Came out superb…5 stars

    • thankyou 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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!5 stars

    • thanks erin for the feedback.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.5 stars

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

  9. 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 stars

    • thanks spiky for the suggestion.
