Roasted Tomato Basil Soup


Roasted Tomato Basil Soup | Cooking Classy

Is there a soup that says summer like a fresh tomato basil soup does? I’ve always loved tomato soup, anything but the canned kind though. This time around I roasted the tomatoes, onions and garlic to give the soup more depth of flavor and it really made the soup over-the-top delicious! This soup requires minimal ingredients but yields such amazing results! When you combine several pounds of fresh tomatoes, several cups of fresh basil and a fair amount of garlic you know it’s got to be good. This is the perfect use for the abundance of tomatoes you have in your garden or those you’ll find at the farmers market.

If you want to keep it extra healthy you can just serve the soup sans grilled cheese croutons but if you want to go all out, definitely make them! They really just make the soup that much better. Yes just picture it, a perfectly toasted, golden, crisp crusted, gooey, melty grilled cheese crouton soaking in a perfectly fresh roasted tomato basil soup. It’s heavenly and you need to try it! Summer produce was made for things like so. Read more »
