Roasted Tomato Soup

Tomato soup is a favourite with all.I love tomatoes in all forms.I tried a roasted tomato soup that was easy to make and so here's it.


Ripe Red Tomatoes: 4 big
Onion: 1 medium
Garlic: 1 clove
Butter: 2 tbsp
Veg Stock/Broth: 1cup or simply water
BayLeaf:1 or 2
Basil leaves : few (optional)
Salt & Pepper: as per taste


Cut tomatoes into halves.Cube the onions and chop the garlic.Put these on a greased baking sheet and top with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.Roast on a pre-heated oven at 450F for 20-25 minutes,until they caramelize on top.

Melt butter in a pan,add bayleaves and roasted items along with the water/juice in the baking sheet and stock/water.I did not use the veg stock but little starchy rice water from the rice I cooked.Cook on simmer till the water is reduced to one-third,or gravy thickens.Add basil leaves if using and blend in a blender.Add required salt,pepper and cook on simmer for a few more minutes.You can add water/stock to obtain the desired thickness.Serve hot with croutons or preferred accompaniments.

This is a simple,good-tasting soup.I will not not say it was out of the world,but yes it was filling and comforting,especially since it was raining outside. Hope you enjoy too.
