Roasted Tomato Basil Soup Recipe
Fresh, homemade Tomato Basil Soup. Roasting the tomatoes and onions brings out the best flavors, and it's perfect by itself or served with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.
- 9 medium Roma tomatoes halved
- 1 onion roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 14 fresh basil leaves
- ½ cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Place tomatoes and onions on the baking sheet, then sprinkle with garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
Toss with olive oil, then bake for 20-25 minutes, until tender.
In a high-powered blender, place roasted tomatoes and onions, then add the fresh basil leaves. Blend until smooth.
Transfer tomato mixture to a stock pot. Add in heavy cream and butter, and heat over medium heat until warmed through (make sure it doesn't boil).
We like to serve ours with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh basil, and a side of grilled cheese.
This recipe serves 4 when used as a side. If you're using this as a main dish, I would say it serves 2.
