Roasted Tomato Soup

• 08 September 2008






















Nothing beats a garden tomato and this is the time of year to enjoy these sweet, plump, delicious vegetables...well, technically it's a fruit but since the Supreme Court officially deemed it a veggie almost one hundred years ago, we'll go with that :)

A few days ago I purchased a bucket of beautiful, ripe tomatoes from a local farm stand for $3 (Harward Farms on 21st S. and 13th E.) and made a large batch of this soup. My oldest daughter declared it the "best soup I've ever had". I'm not sure I'd go that far but it was a delicious recipe and is now my standby tomato soup recipe. As an added bonus this recipe is quite easy to make. I opted to forgo the parmesan crisps for the sake of time but I'm sure they would be delicious. Maybe next time...

Thank you Epicurious! (and all you nice people who take the time to write accurate reviews so that I don't have to play the guessing game)

Looks yummy! I love this time of year. I'm having fun making all sorts of yummy things with my tomatoes. I doubt I'd have enough for a soup, but the farm on the road no doubt has lots. Perhaps I'll give it a try. Thanks!

Perfect Timing. I have a pile of fresh picked tomatoes yelling at me to do something with them! I think I'll make some of my mom's cheesy parmesan breadsticks to go with them. Yum :)

I have a ton of tomatoes in my garden...thanks for the idea! By the way, I read a NY Times story on another blog regarding Nei Nei and saw that you were quoted. WOW!

I love tomato soup with a good grilled cheese sandwich. I will definitely give this recipe a go; especially because we have more tomatoes (in our garden) than we know what to do with. Would you like some?

Thanks for this post! I came home to a bunch of ripe tomatoes and knew just what to do with them. Perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich.
