Roasted Tomato Soup

I’ve always been one to reach for the prepared can on Tomato Soup, why not, it tastes good! Yet one day I didn’t have any yet I had a lot of tomatos to use up. So, I decided it was time to try and make my own Roasted Tomato Soup.

Wow!

Not saying that I’ll never go back to canned tomato soup again, I know I will. Yet, if I have a bit more time, I wouldn’t hesitate to make this recipe again. It’s delicious – creamy and you can really taste the REAl tomatos! And, it makes me feel all domesticated and such, bwaaaa!!!

Serve with croutons, or like my kids prefer: Top with mini grilled cheese croutons! You simply make a grilled cheese sandwich or melt cheddar on toast in the oven – cut into squares and throw in the soup.
