Let us get started with some Quick and Easy Roasted Tomato Soup!
Guys, I’m so excited to make this recipe today. Because while growing up I had tomato soup endless number of times. It was like a daily ritual since my dad was in the army and I grew up drinking the army mess tomato soup. Let it be any tomato soup in this world it is always amazing. And today I will give you my version of roasted tomato soup.
I tried to make it very simple for you guys and I roasted the tomatoes and all the vegetables that I have included in this recipe in the oven. Although if you don’t have an oven feel free to roast everything in a pan with very little oil. There will be no difference in the taste and adjust not amazing. This roasted tomato soup has only used 5 to 6 basic ingredients and nothing else.
Knorr soups are one of the first things we are taught in the culinary school. there are various types of soup starting from hot soups to cold soups and thick soup thin suits. The list goes on and never ends so that is why I am not really going deep in two types of suits. But today we are making a pureed soup. These soups are my favourite that is because that’s so healthy and they have a very dominant flavour of the primary ingredient which is the tomato in case of this roasted tomato soup.
So without any further delay let’s get into the basic components of this roasted tomato soup.
Sweat is very important that you choose the right type of tomatoes for this recipe. Tomatoes are acidic in nature and tend to be very sour in taste and that is why it’s very important that you choose a sweet variety of tomatoes. Because you don’t want you are suitable very sour in taste. I know it is not that easy to get a sweet variety of tomato but get as close as you can and avoid tomatoes that are very sour in taste.
This recipe I have to use some plum Tomatoes are also known as Bangalore tomatoes. I just came into quarters and roasted with some other vegetables like onions garlic Rosemary and little salt and pepper.
Just because it is a tomato soup doesn’t mean that we will only add tomato. although the primary ingredient will always be tomato and will have a dominant taste in the soup. There are other vegetables like onions garlic that I have used in this recipe. Also used herbs like Rosemary and thyme. But you can go for the classic combination of basil and tomato. Also in culinary school, we are taught about a basic bunch of vegetable that always goes into soup full stop vegetables are basically onions carrots leeks celery daily and celery, bay leaf and peppercorns.
You can do the same for all the vegetables just like tomatoes. Cut them into cubes and roast them with tomatoes in the oven.
Herbs and Spices
I will be very honest with you. You do not need a lot of vegetables to make your soup tasty and delicious. Especially when it comes Roasted Tomato Soup, because when roast tomatoes they tend to produce a lot of umami flavour rather than frying or boiling them. But I have added very few spices like black pepper, a little garam masala, to get that army mess tomato soup taste. Also, I have used Rosemary and a little thyme. Although you can go for the classic combination of basil for this roasted tomato soup.
Traditionally we add a little cream towards the end in tomato soups to finish them. Although if you don’t want to add the fresh cream in the recipe that is totally fine and it would just turn out amazing without the cream. But if you are looking forward to a velvety texture with sweet and rich taste to the roasted tomato soup you can add around 2 tablespoons of cream towards the end.
A Garnish is very important for any soup and it basically derives the name of soup in French cuisine. There are a lot of garnishes for tomato soup but I have used the classic one. I think you might have guessed it by now, I have you some croutons. Again there are several ways to make a crouton but I have just lightly toasted them in butter in a pan. But feel free to deep fry them if you are not really worried about the calories and they come out the best that way.
Without any further delay let’s get started with this recipe.
