Contest-Winning Roasted Tomato Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
Just before the first frost of the season, we gather up all of the tomatoes from my mom’s garden to create this flavor-packed soup. Although it sounds like a lot of garlic, when it’s roasted, the garlic becomes mellow and almost sweet. We serve this soup with toasted bread spread with pesto.—Kaitlyn Lerdahl, Madison, Wisconsin

"Good way to use up tomatoes drier paste tomatoes work the best."

"My husband, who rarely likes new recipes, loved this one. It really wasn't very difficult or time consuming. He said he wants to make it for the firestation...so it must be a hit!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2011

"This soup was so yummy! I didn't have any fresh tomatoes, just not so hot ones from the grocery store and it was still good. I'm sure it's amazing with garden tomatoes!

The only change I would make is to remove the tomato skins before baking. It was irritating to sit and wait til they cooled and then have to pick off all the skin before cooking. Plus, like someone else mentioned, you loose half the garlic."

"This is the best homemade tomato soup I have ever made. It makes more like 2 qts.

Next time I make it I will use only 4 cloves of garlic."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 29, 2011

"i made a couple adjustments, substituting some of the water for tomato juice, added more garlic to saute with the onions as the garlic with the tomatoes, most of it didn't make it into the soup, was burned or discarded with the skins. the result was scrumptious!"
