Tomato Soup

When the weather starts to get cooler,who doesn’t crave a bowl of soup. During this transition phase from the summer to the fall, I get an abundance of fresh produce from yard, especially the tomatoes. I decided to make a roasted tomato soup. It’s a very easy soup to make.The tomatoes from my yard are really big, about a fist size. I had some cherry tomatoes which I added while roasting.

Serves: 4

Prep time: 5 minutes

Bake time: 40 minutes

You will need:

  • 3-4 large tomatoes
  • 1 small garlic bulb
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 5-6 whole black peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup cream or half and half
  • Salt as per taste

How to proceed:

  1. Preheat the oven at 400 F
  2. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and place them in a baking tray with whole peppercorns, quartered onion, and a whole garlic bulb. 
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 35-40 minutes.
  4. Let the tomatoes cool little bit and peel the garlic and discard the skin.
  5. Place all the roasted ingredients in a grinder and purée everything with the salt, thyme, ginger powder, broth, and cream.
  6. You can warm the soup in a pan, over the stove, or use a microwave. While warming the soup, add some chopped basil and save a couple leaves for garnishing
  7. Serve with bread crumbs or a grilled cheese sandwich.

Cooking comes naturally to me, I guess I inherited it from my maternal grandmother. I love baking as it’s a good activity to spend time with my kids.
Baking is my first love. I had a home based baking business of custom cakes. But, with constant moves comes adjusting and settling to new environments and starting over again. So decided to share my experience and knowledge with you all.
The idea behind the blog is to document all my recipes and experience with food, and record all my traditional family recipes, which is a part of my culture.
