So a lot is going on this week. It’s fantastic and hectic and OMG I need wine. Except I am doing Whole30 so… crap!
There are only a few more days left until this Whole30 is over, so I’ll survive. Plus, this extra push and busy schedule is made crazier by the time I will miss from attending Everything Food Conference next week, but soooooooo worth it.
There will be a lot of running around this weekend but it we’ll get the never ending to-do lists done. Or at least I’ll just wash all the laundry and leave it in the basket until the end of time.
The one thing I know that will happen is that I am going to make another batch of this Roasted Tomato Soup. Seriously, I’m not just saying that. I can’t get enough of this soup.
Roasted Tomato Soup
This is one of my favorite soups to make in the summer. I love fresh , ripe summer tomatoes. We eat them in salads, on burgers, and in this soup.
I made several batches of this Roasted Tomato Soup from our never ending supply of tomatoes from our Tomato Picking Adventures. It’s great because it freezes so well!
The prep for this recipe is pretty minimal as you just need to quarter the tomatoes and onions. Then you place them, along with a whole head of garlic and some oil, on a lined rimmed baking pan.
Plum, Roma, or whatever tomato you can get your hands on will make a delicious soup. Use a variety of tomatoes. Whatever.
Once the tomatoes, onions, and garlic are roasted, transfer them to the stock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer.
I love that you can use chicken or vegetable stock, both ways results in a great soup.
Similarly, I’ve used a variety of herbs when making this soup. Every batch can be unique with the different herbs you use. The most important things is that you use fresh herbs.
I love that this recipe is Whole30 compliant, if you use compliant broth. If you use a vegetable broth it can easily be vegetarian and vegan.
To blend this soup, you can use a food processor, immersion blender, or a traditional blender. If you are using a food processor or blender, don’t fill the vessel too high, or you could make it explode! ah!
Eat this soup piping hot and with an extra drizzle of oil on top. And, you might even want to make a rocking grilled cheese to dunk into there. You’ll thank me.
What kind of tomatoes do you use?
The great thing about this soup is that it’s so easy to make and so flexible so you can use a wide variety of tomatoes. No matter what you use, you’ll have a great soup.
Does this soup freeze well?
Yes! In fact, I love to make big batches of it and then freeze it to enjoy in the winter.
