Roasted Tomato Soup with Cream and Onions
Today we’re going to jump into bowls of Roasted Tomato Soup.
It might be a little messy if we jump into the soup, though. So maybe we should stick with bringing spoons and eating like civilized people. ;)
Before we talk about this roasted tomato soup, I have to tell you about the epic mess I made in my kitchen while making this soup.
Sometimes I don’t think before I do things in the kitchen. Sometimes I don’t do things carefully while in the kitchen. Just ask Ken – he says I don’t wash the dishes carefully because sometimes he finds food stuck on them. I blame it on the dishwasher because the dishwasher does most of my dirty work. And then I tell Ken to wash them himself if he doesn’t like the way they are cleaned. Teehee!
So if my kitchen walls, ceiling and cabinets could talk, they would tell you about the night they received a nice dousing of roasted tomato soup. My arm would also tell you that on that same night, it was burned by roasted tomato soup. In an attempt to cut back on time, I decided to use a blender instead of an immersion blender to blend said tomato soup. I did not wait for the soup to cool. I just spooned ALL of it into my blender. I put the lid on the blender and then hit pulse. HOLY CRAP! and other expletives. The pressure from the heat cause the lid of the blender to loosen and tomato soup exploded all over my kitchen and all over my arm. No joke, there was soup splattered on my roof, my cabinets, my floors and 10 feet away into my dining room. My kitchen could have been used in a scene of a horror movie. My arm was bursting with pain. My dog was going to town, licking the tomato soup off the floor. JACKPOT! True story – my dog loves tomatoes so this was the best thing ever next to being given fresh tomato treats.
It took me a while to clean up that mess.
Roasted Tomato Soup
I adapted this recipe from the Williams Sonoma Good For You cookbook. I basically followed the recipe exactly but I used a different method for roasting the tomatoes and I added some half and half for an extra boost of creaminess without adding a ton of calories. The soup is smooth, creamy and pairs well with a grilled cheese sandwich or a light salad. If you prefer a little substance in your soups, you can add some cooked cheese tortellini, macaroni or rice. Simply dipping a crispy grilled cheese sandwich into is is good enough for me. I’ll take it plain, too! Adapted from Williams Sonoma Good For You cookbook by Dana Jacobi.
