Roasted Tomato Soup

If I had to live on one food for the rest of my life, it would be tomatoes. Cannot imagine life without them and wouldn’t want to. Why would I, when I can think of about 43 delicious ways to prepare tomatoes off the top of my head? I’m the Bubba Blue of tomatoes!

Don’t get me started, or I will yap your ear off about ‘em. So I doubt you’re going to need three tries to guess what my favorite soup is, huh? Definitely tomato! Especially this Roasted Tomato Soup. Five ingredients, so much creamy, tomato-ey goodness.

Cherry tomatoes, garlic and red onion, roasted to sweet perfection in the oven and then blitzed with a generous amount of olive oil and some salt. Done and delicious. Served with lots of fresh basil and some of our Confit Tomatoes, because why would I not double up on my favorite ingredient?
