Roasted Italian Tomato Soup

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Roasted Italian Tomato Soup is another delicious soup recipe, but with a twist! This one does NOT include basil! It seems like every tomato soup recipe these days has basil in the ingredients. Since I already have about 7 or 8 tomato soup recipes with basil I wanted to make one with a totally different taste, yet keep the Italian flair. This soup roasts Roma tomatoes with onions, garlic, leeks and several seasonings including Italian seasoning and fresh herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary, parsley and chives. It’s succulent and amazing.

When I made up a batch of Roasted Italian Tomatoes back in October, I wondered how the recipe would turn out if I made it into a soup. Well, it was heavenly. I added vegetable broth to get the consistency of soup but really didn’t change the recipe a whole lot. While you can garnish this soup with Homemade Gluten Free Croutons, it’s also good served with your favorite bread or homemade rolls. Roasted Italian Tomato Soup is gluten free, vegan, healthy, low calorie and clean eating. And, did I say it tastes great? 🙂

After serving a batch of Roasted Italian Tomatoes to a friend for lunch one day, I asked her what she thought of trying the recipe out in soup form. She thought it was a great idea, so I made a batch of it for both of us and took it to lunch the next time we met. Yes, this soup is a winner and a welcome addition now that cool weather has finally hit Texas. If you’re looking for an excellent low-calorie meal after all the holiday feasting, then give Roasted Italian Tomato Soup a try. You won’t be disappointed. You may even find yourself going back for seconds.

Place tomatoes cut-side-up on top of a very large cookie sheet that’s been spread with parchment paper. Top tomatoes with onions and leeks, spreading as evenly on each tomato as possible. Scrape any remaining onions and olive oil mixture from mixing bowl and drizzle over top of the tomatoes.

Finely mince rosemary, oregano, thyme and chives. Sprinkle each herb over top of each tomato. (I used about two to three tablespoons fresh herbs of each kind).

Recipe Notes

NOTE: While I used 16-oz. vegetable broth, if you prefer a slightly thicker soup you can decrease the broth to 8-oz. This is a personal preference issue, depending on how thick you like your soups.

NOTE: Salt and pepper according to your taste. I found the larger amounts better, but you may prefer this with less.
