Good way to use up tomatoes drier paste tomatoes work the best.
This soup tasted wonderful. We used leftover tomatoes from our garden and a lot of them were small. So we did not take the time to peel them all but after blending the skin was not noticeable in the soup.
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!
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.
