Just some notes to friends

Roasted Tomato Soup

Finished with a half of a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I have been craving a good Tomato Soup. Something that would satisfy my craving for Basil as well. This soup did it! I love all off the Roasting going on first, just makes the soup. I have lots of Basil growing in the big pot on the patio, I planted the small baby plant in the spring and now it is a HUGE bunch!

Start by cutting up 3-4 tomato’s, I used 4 Roma’s. Quarter them and lay on flat sheet covered with foil. Cut 1/2 yellow onion into wedges and add to the pan. Then 3 cloves of garlic, halved, tucked into the tomato pieces. Pour about 1-2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil over the veggies. Salt and Pepper and sprinkle with fresh Parsley (from my little garden). Then place into the oven at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

Seasoned and ready to go in the oven

Roasted Tomato

Now heat 1 can of low sodium Chicken Broth in good size sauce pan. Add 1 Tablespoon tomato paste (I use the kind in the tube). Heat on medium low heat and stir until well blended. Add the Roasted Veggies and simmer for about 10 minutes.

In the Pan

Now use your immersion blender or tall blender to mix the soup together to your desired consistancy. I wanted it to be “Rustic”, kind of thick. Then add 1/4 cup Half and Half and stir and simmer for another 5 minutes.

I ran back out to the Garden and picked the Basil and tossed it on top of the soup one it was in the bowl.

This was so GOOD! And super easy. I have been juicing and have not had a lot of solid food for a week and this was just perfect.
