Roasted Cream of Tomato Soup

DSC_1069 This soup is incredible this time of year, allowing you to use up the last of the summer produce in a delicious, warming way. The last of the true, seasonal tomatoes will only be available for the next few weeks and this is a great way to use up the last few in your garden or at the farmer’s market.

Combining the slow roasted flavours with fresh tomatoes creates a depth of flavour that I find irresistible ❤

This makes a big batch which I like to divide, eating half for dinner, and freezing half for a busy day.  If you decide to do this, reserve your half for freezing before you add your cream.  Once defrosted, add your cream and re-heat slowly.

Roasted Cream of Tomato Soup

– 6 medium sized tomatoes

– 2 large or 3 medium onions

– 3 medium carrots

– 4 garlic cloves

– 1/4 cup olive or avocado oil

– salt and pepper to taste

– 4 cups vegetable broth

1/2 a jar of canned tomatoes OR 2 cups fresh tomatoes

– 1/2 cup white wine 

– 3/4 cup heavy cream OR coconut milk (to keep it vegan-I promise you won’t taste it!)

– 2-4 cups fresh basil

Preheat your oven to 400•.  Halve your tomatoes, onions, carrots, and garlic cloves.  Toss with the oil and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper.  Place on your baking pan in a single layer (if you have cast iron, use it now <3) Roast until your veggies are golden and beginning to caramelize.

Scrape into a large pot, making sure to get all the juices and the browned bits stuck to the bottom of the baking pan.  Add vegetable broth and fresh tomatoes.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes (or longer if you like).  Add white wine and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes.  Use an immersion (or regular) blender to puree the soup.  Be careful 🙂 Remove from heat.  Add your cream and tear in your basil.  Taste.  Season with salt and pepper until perfect.

Enjoy ❤ ❤
