Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

Lovely tomato soup, the aromas were so enticing right from roasting the tomatoes (which I could have eaten just like that, lol). however, I restrained myself and made the soup, yum. Rich, robust, this will spoil you for less inspired tomato soups! Prepared with ease and served with crusty french bread, a dish fit for kings. Thank you Elvis, my soup of choice!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss together the tomatoes, 1/4 cup olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the tomatoes in 1 layer on a baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes.
  2. In an 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, saute the onions and garlic with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the butter, and red pepper flakes for 10 minutes, until the onions start to brown. Add the canned tomatoes, basil, thyme, and chicken stock. Add the oven-roasted tomatoes, including the liquid on the baking sheet. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 40 minutes. Add Whiskey and Cream, and let simmer 10 minutes, working the tomatoes with a spoon to break them up in the mixture.
