Roasted Tomato Soup with Fresh Basil Recipe

Roasting really brings out the flavor of the tomatoes in this wonderful soup. It has a slightly chunky texture that indicates it's fresh and homemade. —Marie Forte, Raritan, New Jersey

"Simple preparation and it tastes amazing! I threw in a hot pepper for roasting as well, and adjusted the salt after pureeing it. Delicious soup!"

"This soup is outstanding! I doubled the recipe and roasted the veggies for close to an hour. After processing in my blender, I put the mixture through a sieve to remove the skins and seeds. The soup was easy to make, thick, and delicious! I plan on making more with my garden-fresh tomatoes and freezing it to enjoy this winter."

"This is a very good tomato soup recipe. I was afraid it wasn't salty enough somI added a little more. After it sat it was too salty. Lesson leatned is that it's probably salty enough so don't be too quick to add more. P.S. It's really good cold also!"

"The soup is good, but very chunky. I think an immersion blender would do the best job, rather than a food processor. The roasted tomatoes smelled amazing when I pulled them out of the oven, and the soup is very simple to make."

"I made this recipe tonight, didn't blend it, but served it over linguine rigati. It was very good. I liked that I didn't have to poach and peel the tomatoes, as I usually do when making sauce. I doubled the recipe and roasted the tomato mixture for one hour. My family loved it! This recipe really brings out the flavor of the tomatoes and is a great and easy way to use abundant tomatoes and basil from the garden. A definite keeper!"

"Really disgusting. I couldn't believe it! The skins from the tomatoes caused gross bits in the soup and there really wasn't much flavour. I was dissapointed because of all the good ingredients gone to waste."

"Made these with larger tomatoes, but used the weight specified in the recipe. Blended in our Vitamix and didn't reheat in a pot as it all fit in the blender. This was a good recipe, but we have had a better one. Make sure to serve something buttery and crunchy as a side to really compliment this soup."

"This was just ok - but since it calls for fresh tomatoes, I'm not sure if it's the recipe, or just the batch of tomatoes I used. I did think they could have been riper."

"Disappointing. Roasting, pureeing, re-heating, and the results reminded me of a no-frills spaghetti sauce. I even added a small amount of red wine, but that didn't seem to make a difference. I also think the tomatoes should have been seeded before roasting."

"This was wonderful and very easy to make. A little goes a long way with this soup, though. I served this with homemade croutons made out of Italian bread drizzed with olive oil and some cracked black pepper. The croutons might even be better if you added parmesean to them when you baked them."
