November 05, 2008

I was at the grocery store yesterday (imagine that), and Campari tomatoes were buy one, get one free (run to Publix now). It inspired me to share with you my favorite Roasted Tomato Basil Soup recipe. This is so easy to prepare and bursting with flavors. And for those of you watching your weight or don’t like creamy soups, this soup has no cream, milk or half-and-half.

 

Roasted Campari Tomato-Basil Soup

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

2 (16-ounce) containers compari tomatoes, cut in half

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

1 cups chopped yellow onions 

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 (28-ounce) canned plum tomatoes, undrained

1 cup finely chopped fresh basil

4 cups chicken broth

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Toss together the tomatoes, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the tomatoes in 1 layer on a baking sheet and roast for 30 to 40 minutes.

In an 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, saute the onions and garlic in remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, butter and red pepper flakes for 10 minutes, until the onions start to brown. Add the canned tomatoes, basil and chicken broth. Add the oven-roasted tomatoes, including the liquid on the baking sheet. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

Campari and Roma are definitely varieties to use for this recipe. And as soon as you add basil...well, that just takes it over the top. Who needs cream??

I made the Roasted Tomato Basil Soup tonight for my family. It was easy to make, healthy and delicious. I served it in bread bowls. My guys want me to make it again soon for them and I've already recomended this recipe to a friend who's having guest on Sunday. This is also a great "comfort" soup to take to someone in need.
