Roasted Tomato Soup with Basil

Using canned whole tomatoes means this recipe can easily be made throughout the year. The secret to the soup's great taste is fresh basil...the more the better as far as I'm concerned!

  • 2 cans (28 ounces each) whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 carton (32 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed chicken broth, undiluted
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar, divided


  • Drain whole tomatoes, pouring juice into a Dutch oven; set tomatoes aside. Add the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, condensed chicken broth, tomato paste, vinegar, basil and thyme to the pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • Pierce reserved tomatoes; place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with onion and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Bake at 450° for 20-30 minutes or until onion is tender. Cool slightly and chop.
  • Discard thyme sprigs from soup. Stir in roasted tomato mixture and remaining brown sugar; heat through. Serve warm or cold.
