This roasted tomato soup is wholesome, super easy to make and incredibly delicious. It’s made in under 30 minutes and simple, easy-to-come-by ingredients. I love to serve it hot together with some flatbreads or focaccia. However, it’s just as delicious cold the next day.
All the vegetables are roasted in the oven before being blended together with a stock cube and some olive oil. The roasting process brings out those delicious, umami-forward flavours that we all love. The soup is served with freshly chopped parsley and basil leaves.
I used roma tomatoes for this recipe as I find that they have a beautiful flavour that is great in soups (and also pasta sauces). Before I put them in the oven, I poke them with a knife so they can release steam while roasting. I don’t usually remove the skins after roasting, but feel free to do so. The soup will be even smoother that way.
