As the fall weather is settling in, my fall clothing is sneaking out of the closet one piece at a time, and the soup recipes are sneaking their way into the meal rotation. There's something comforting about a steaming, hearty bowl of soup and this one is quite nutritious! And, yes, we did have grilled cheese sandwiches with our tomato soup, because YUM!
Being a chef student, I get to taste a lot of different foods, and my husband gets to sample a plethora of experiments. This week we're determined to eat healthy (besides a bit of cream in the soup, which can be switched out for a lighter option), and sometimes soup is a great way to get tasty comfort food without all the calories and too much butter.
This roasted tomato soup is so delicious that it's become a fast favourite here. The tomatoes were roasted off in the oven together with onion and an entire head of garlic. Roasted garlic is much milder in flavour and takes on a delicious sweet note that's wonderful on anything from toast to soups without that burning raw aftertaste and breath that could drop an elefant. When the tomatoes were breaking down and watery, and the onion and garlic was browned, everything was blended together with some stock and spices then simmered.
