Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Hi friends! I’m excited to share with you my new favorite comfort food: Roasted tomato basil soup. It’s stupidly easy to make and only requires 8 everyday ingredients (plus some toppings).

It needs no cream but the texture is incredibly rich and creamy.

Roast, blend, reheat, top, and serve. It’s that simple.

Let’s go!

  • 1 kg plum tomatoes (2.2 lb.), quartered

  • Salt
  • Pepper

  • To a baking sheet, add tomato + onion + garlic.
  • Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt + pepper. Massage / mix well using your hands.
  • Transfer to a preheated oven and roast for 50 minutes at 230 C (445 F). Every oven is different so you might have to adjust this by as much as 10-15 minutes (just make sure the tomatoes are nicely roasted).
    *NOTE: Onion + garlic roast faster than tomatoes, and they may burn depending on how you chop them.
    Petal-cut onions + sliced garlic may char (which is good), but then they may also burn (not good). So you'll have to remove them at 30-35 minute mark.
    If you're using roughly chopped onion + whole garlic, you don't have to worry about them burning.
  • Once roasted, let it cool for 3-4 minutes and transfer everything to a high-speed blender.
  • Add fresh basil leaves + water to the blender and blend until creamy.
  • Transfer it to a saucepan and reheat (do not boil - boiling will affect the taste of fresh basil).
  • Transfer to serving bowl(s) and top with extra virgin olive oil + toasted breads / croutons + freshly chopped basil + sea salt flakes. Enjoy! 🙂

    This dish was easy to make, guilt free, inexpensive and delicious. It has a TON of flavor and made my kitchen smell amazing. The fresh basil is the star of the show. I made the recipe as stated, there were no need to change anything. My husband and I were very impressed and added this recipe into our rotation. Best served with grilled cheese. Yum!
