Roasted Tomato Soup

Roasted Tomato Soup

Easy and healthy Roasted Tomato Soup made with freshly roasted tomatoes, caramelized onion, garlic, fresh basil and vegetable or chicken broth. It tastes just like my favorite soup from Panera!

Some other family favorite soup recipes include Chicken Tortilla Soup and Corn Chowder with Chilies.

I love all soups, but I especially love soups that are healthy AND delicious. This Roasted Tomato Soup proves that they don’t have to be chocked full of cream or butter to taste amazing! This is my favorite type of soup from Panera Bread Co–I can never order anything else!

This recipe is adapted from Ina Garten and is absolutely delicious! It’s a GREAT recipe but her version has way to much basil for my taste (and I LOVE basil…so that’s saying something!) so I cut down on that. It tastes great the next day, and freezes well, too!

How to make Roasted Tomato Soup:

  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Toss the tomatoes with ¼ cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Layer on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in preheated oven for 45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium heat, sauté the onions and garlic with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, butter, and red pepper flakes until onion is translucent and starts to brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the canned plum tomatoes, chopped basil, thyme, and stock. Add the oven roasted tomatoes, including the juices from the pan.

  • Bring the soup to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes, uncovered. Taste and add salt and pepper or more thyme or basil as needed.
  • Transfer the soup to a blender , or use an immersion blender to puree until smooth.

  • Serve with fresh grated parmesan cheese on top and a side of cheesy bread!

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

Roasted tomato soup can be made a few days ahead of time, stored in the fridge. I think it even tastes better as it sits and the flavors have time to blend.

To freeze, store in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge, then rewarm on the stove.
