Roasted Tomato Soup Recipe
How to roast tomatoes for soup
Roasted vegetable soup is my favourite to make – you can pack it with delicious vegetables.
Making tomato soup with fresh tomatoes just gives it such a good flavour. I tend to use plump, ripe vine tomatoes, peppers, carrots, celery, onions and fennel. I tuck in cloves of garlic and season well with herbs, sea salt and black pepper.
I add a good glug of olive oil and roast in the oven slowly for around an hour so you get a great, caramelised, sweet and delicious flavour.
When roasting vegetables for soup – make sure you cut the vegetables into similar sized pieces so they roast evenly – tomatoes only need cutting in half.
