    Roasted Fresh Tomato and Garlic Soup, Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free

    December 12, 2018

    There is nothing I like better than a steaming bowl of Tomato Soup with a hot grilled cheese sandwich. I started looking for Tomato Soup recipes with no dairy and preferably vegan and all I found were recipes with canned tomatoes (gasp!)  So, I made up my own. This comes together in 30 minutes after roasting, and while your ingredients are roasting you have time to finish wrapping presents or sit and enjoy a cup of hot tea and finish that book you started weeks ago.

    I do not recommend skipping the roasting part (in other words, no Insta Pot!). Roasting the tomatoes, onions and garlic brings out the sweet smoky flavors and it is key to a superior tasting soup. This soup is also low salt and heart-healthy. Let’s get to it!

    Roasted Fresh Tomato and Garlic Soup (Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free)

    Ingredients:

    3 pounds of fresh Campari tomatoes (I prefer Campari over any other), cut in half

    1 pound of grape tomatoes, leave whole

    6 garlic cloves, peeled

    2 small yellow onions, quartered

    3 cups Vegetable Stock (my all time favorite is ZOUP brand)

    a sprinkling of oregano and red pepper flakes

    Salt (optional) and pepper to taste

    Fresh cilantro or basil for garnishing

    Instructions:

    Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

    Line a baking sheet with a silpat. Spread out the halved tomatoes, whole grape tomatoes, garlic cloves and onions. Generously spray with cooking spray. Add salt and pepper. (If you are salt free you can skip the salt!) Roast for 30-35 minutes, until ingredients are caramelized and onions are just starting to brown. There should be lots of juice in your pan.

    Remove from oven and transfer all ingredients, including pan juices, to a large stock pot. Add 3 cups Vegetable Broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and continue to simmer for 20-30 minutes, until liquid has reduced by about a third.

    Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until creamy and smooth. Top with fresh cilantro or basil.
