Garden Roasted Tomato Soup

what can I do with garden tomatoes

Hey guys!  If you all are like me, you have loads of extra ripe tomatoes coming from your end of summer gardens.  I wanted to show you a recipe I made with all my tomatoes! 

Garden Roasted Tomato Soup

About 3 lbs of peeled garden tomatoes (cut into chunks)
2 onions cut into chunks
3 cloves of garlic, minced
salt & pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary or 1 1/4 teaspoons dried
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme or 1 1/4 teaspoons dried
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
6 cups chicken broth
6 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Put the tomatoes, onions and garlic  on cookie sheets, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Drizzle both sheets of tomatoes etc. with Olive Oil

extra virgin olive oil

Roast for 40 minutes, or until the onions and tomatoes are nice and tender. (mine actually took closer to an hour, but I think it depends on your oven, so just keep an eye on it)

how to roast tomatoes

After the tomatoes are done, transfer tomatoes and any accumulated juices to processor, pulse until the tomatoes are still a wee bit chunky. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in large pot over medium-high heat,  stir in tomatoes, rosemary, thyme and dried crushed red pepper. Add chicken stock; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until soup thickens slightly, about 25 minutes. Stir in fresh basil, remove from heat, and eat!

Here’s the end results! Oh yummy!  I topped our tomato soup with some Italian croutons and a little grated parmesan cheese!

I am glad you were blessed with so many tomatoes - We had very few tomatoes! Last year we had so many - could hardly keep up. This year never had even enough at one time to freeze. Sad!

Hi Missy! This looks delicious! I am afraid my tomatoes did not do well this season. I am assuming it was from all the rain but not sure. The end of July and early August I got quite a few in and then nothing. Very disappointing. Now cucumbers are a different story. I have so many, and I do mean many of the really long English cucumbers that I can't give them away! Have a great day!
Hugs, Patti

Oh Missy, this looks delicious! Sadly we have been wanting in the tomato category... okay the overall garden category. Partly due to neglect and partly due to a couple of pests that devoured much of the garden (primarily tomatoes). Ah such is life! We will take the rain with the sunshine (figuratively)!

Now if I lived any where near Miss Crystal Rose Cottage I would gladly take all and any of the cucumbers she wanted to give away because I have a recipe for pickles that don't use pickling cucs... in fact you can even use the big fat, turned yellow cucs in this recipe!

Have a wonderful day, my friend! I've been thinking about you lately! I miss our "chats" but I'm trying to limit my time on-line. Some things had to change and for now that is one of them. I'll catch up with you sometime later this week, ok?! :-)

Take care now!
