    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    This is sooo great! I got it from the website Soupchick.com and it is a winner. The tomatoes are roasted and the blue cheese is melted into the soup so every bite you get a bit of the tang. Crispy bacon on top completes the perfect soup!!

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425. Rub a bit of olive oil on your hands and coat each of the tomato halves. place them cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the tomatoes in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and chop the tomatoes roughly in a food processor or by hand.
    2. 2
      In the bottom of your soup pot cook the bacon over low heat until it's crisp. Remove to a plate and cover with a paper towel. Reserve a tablespoon of the bacon fat to cook the vegetables.
    3. 3
      Add the onion, celery and carrots to the soup pot and cook stirring occasionally for 1 - 2 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Stir in the flour and mix well until it's completely incorporated with the veggies in the pot. Pour in the heated stock and stir well until the stock thickens slightly and the vegetables are soft.
    4. 4
      Crumble the cheese into the pot and add the chopped tomatoes. Bring the soup to a boil stirring to help melt the cheese. Remove the pot from heat and use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. (Or let the soup cool slightly and process in batches in a blender or food processor; then return the soup to the pot.). Cook until the soup is hot but not yet at the simmer.
    5. 5
      Roughly chop the bacon.Serve the soup in individual bowls,, topped with bacon. Sprinkle the black pepper and chopped parsley if desired.

      Update: Since the first time I made this soup, I've made it a bunch of times. It's become one of our ALL TIME FAVORITES! I always do use some of the cheeses mentioned below. I can't always find horseradish cheddar, therefore I add a small pat (1/2 - 1 tsp. horseradish). I've even added fresh basil at the end and have emulsified it with a hand blender. Love it! <br/>Previous Review: This soup hit the spot. It's a little chilly today and the smell of the bacon and tomatoes were so inviting that I couldn't wait to eat it. Because my husband isn't a fan of blue cheese (he claims not to be), I didn't use the full amount of blue cheese, but rather added a bit of feta, blue cheese and some horseradish cheddar that I had on hand. I used about 6 oz. of cheese in total. If it wasn't for my husbands dislike of blue cheese I would have used the full amount. Low and behold he loved it....and didn't even know the blue cheese was in there. I won't tell him either. I also had to add a couple of teaspoons of sugar to help reduce the acidity of the tomatoes. All and all we all loved it. I can't believe how DELICIOUS this soup is. I will be making this one again and I HIGHLY recommend it. I think I could have eaten the whole pot of soup. Thank you CaliforniaJan for sharing! Played for Spring Photo Tag game.

      This was a big hit with both adults and kids. I too just used the bacon fat instead of butter, but reduced the fat to approx 2 tbsp. I followed the recipe but blended the soup before adding the blue cheese.
