Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

September 18, 2017Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2017

I know, I know, you’re saying, “ANOTHER Tomato Soup recipe!” Seriously??? But Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is just so smooth and delicious I couldn’t resist. I love making Homemade Tomato Soups since they are so much healthier than canned soups. Granted, I have the time to make them as well. Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is one of those comforting foods that I just love to eat. Serve with homemade bread or rolls (even gluten free versions), to add that last satisfying touch to a completely wonderful meal.

One of the reasons I like this version of Tomato Basil Soup is because I roasted the tomatoes and vegetables before making the soup. I added all kinds of herbs and seasonings too. Then after the soup was cooked and pureed I added heavy whipping cream to make the soup more creamy. The result was really delicious.

I have several roasted tomato versions of soup. I’ve started with my favorite Roasted Italian Tomatoes recipe. To that, I add different things depending on my mood. 🙂 One includes roasting a whole bulb of garlic. Another has lots of Italian seasonings. A third has both cream and parmesan cheese. I have four or five vegan versions.

Back in August, one of the gals in our former Sunday school class lost her mom after a long bout with Alzheimer’s. I wanted to send her a meal and had to come up with something in a few hours. I had made this soup the day beforehand, and since there was plenty leftover, I sent them a batch of this soup along with homemade bread and cookies. The bread only took 2 hours in the breadmaker and I had stashed the cookies in the freezer a few days before.

So voila! I had a meal ready and delivered to them in about 3 hours. I got a text back that night telling me how much they enjoyed all the food. Even though they told us they didn’t need any food, we sent the meal to them anyway. They told us later how much they appreciated having a meal they hadn’t cooked.

If you’re looking for a terrific soup recipe for the fall, give Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup a try. It’s the perfect remedy for cool nights when you want something hot to warm you up. Serve it with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and you have a scrumptious meal everyone in your family will love!

I enjoyed this soup with shaved parmesan cheese and a little fresh basil.

You will find every bite so creamy and comforting.

Here’s what I did.

I roasted these vegetables.

I used these ingredients to roast the vegetables.

Slice tomatoes in half. (I used Roma tomatoes). Place parchment paper in a large cookie sheet with an edge. Place tomatoes on cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with fresh, diced herbs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast the veggies at 400 for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Set aside. You really don’t want to brown or blacken the veggies so the soup doesn’t end up tasting scorched.

Slice red peppers, celery, leeks, onions and carrots. Add whole garlic cloves. Sprinkle with diced herbs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. (You can also drizzle this tray with olive oil if you prefer, although I didn’t do that).

I used these ingredients to finish the soup.

Place all of the tomatoes in a large Dutch oven. (I prefer using enameled cast iron). Make sure you scrape all of the herbs and olive oil off the parchment paper and add it to the Dutch oven. You want all the flavor possible. Bring heat to medium.

Add all of the roasted veggies with seasonings to the Dutch oven. Add chicken broth. You can substitute vegetable broth if you prefer. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat about 10-15 minutes until heated through.

With an immersion blender, puree all the veggies in the soup.

Stir in heavy whipping cream. If desired, you can substitute almond milk.
