This recipe calls for roasting fresh tomatoes, which lends deep, rich flavor to the soup. Toasted sourdough bread is the perfect accompaniment. 

Ingredients:

For the roasted tomatoes: 

  • 3 lb. tomatoes  
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil 
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar 
  • 1 garlic clove, minced 
  • 1/4 tsp. salt 
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme 
  •   
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil 
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine 
  • 3 cups chicken broth 
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste 
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
  • Toasted sourdough bread for serving (optional) 

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 325°F.

To make the roasted tomatoes, cut the tomatoes in half and place, cut side up, on a baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and thyme. Spoon the mixture evenly over the tomatoes. Bake until the tomatoes are soft and wrinkled, about 1 hour. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring often and reducing the heat as needed to prevent scorching, until the onion is soft, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the wine, increase the heat to high and boil until the liquid is evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the broth and tomatoes, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan used to roast the tomatoes, and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.

In a blender or food processor, puree the soup, in batches if necessary, until smooth. Alternatively, pass the soup through a food mill. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.

Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, garnish with the parsley and serve with toasted sourdough bread. Serves 4 to 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This soup rocks...especially when its cold outside I was having a hankering for Tomato soup and saw this recipe today. Decided to try it and and am sure glad I did. Both depth and flavor are awesome. Super easy to make and actually just used a wand blender to mix it all up in the pot as opposed to the Vitimix. Very healthy. Will add this to my favorites file.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tomato Soup to Die For! The depth of flavor that the balsamic vinegar gives this soup is amazing. I have been making homemade tomato soup for a very long time and this recipe is one of the best I've ever made. I used a sweet onion which added to the flavor. This soup deserves a 10! Served it with homemade pizza. Mangiare!
