How To Make Roasted Tomato Soup
To start, wash the Roma tomatoes with fruit and vegetable wash and then slice them in half lengthwise. There’s no need to remove the seeds or the stem of the tomato. If for some reason you have a part of the tomato that is overly ripe or starting to get dark spots just cut that part off.
Then, add the Italian herbs, salt, cracked pepper, garlic, and olive oil to a large bowl. After that, add your tomatoes to the bowl and mix them until they are thoroughly coated.
Next, put the tomatoes cut side up on parchment paper or a silicone mat on a baking sheet. Roast the tomatoes in the oven at 400 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
After that, wash the basil. Spray it with fruit and vegetable wash, rinse it in cold water, and dry it off in a salad spinner. I love the OXO salad spinner. Next, stack about 10-15 basil leaves, roll them up, and then chop them into small strips. Then, chop the basil a little more until it is in small pieces.
Once the oven-roasted tomatoes are cooked, take them off of the parchment paper and put them into a saucepan. Then, add the chicken broth or vegetable broth and chopped basil to the saucepan. After that, use an immersion blender to blend the ingredients in the saucepan. Once your soup is heated up and mixed give it a taste to see if it needs more salt. If so, add salt to taste. I added 1/4 TSP of salt to my soup. Then, garnish with fresh basil and maybe even a delicious grilled cheese!
