Fresh Tomato Soup

Fresh Tomato Soup created by Galley Wench

This is a tasty combination of fresh tomatoes and intensely flavored sun-dried tomatoes. The recipe comes from The Soup Bible however I added the roasting of the tomatoes and onion. UPDATE: 8/7/09 I've reduced the servings to four; obviously the number of servings will vary with the size.of the portions. NOTE: I've also made using canned whole tomatoes, using the method in Recipe #391660

    I have frozen tomatoes from my garden. Will these still work for roasting?

    Just finished eating this dish now. I doubled the recipe to make for 12 but it only made for 5!! Luckily most the house was out. Was really yummy other than this. I originally made this recipe to try the creme fraiche to see what it was like, and i loved it! i love all my my creams and sour creams ect. This recipe is fairly simple just takes time with the roasting but worth it i say, gave me time to make my bread and butter pudding while roasting in the oven =]

    It's 90 dregees outside, but I just finished making a batch of this wonderful soup and had a bowl . I agree with Maito, don't skip the roasting, it's well worth the time. I used the oven this time, but when I make more I think I'll experiment with roasting a large quantity on the grill and stocking the freezer with this delicious soup, it will be a regular at our house. Thanks for posting

    Absolutely delicious! I would not skip the roasting process, that gives this soup it's unique flavor. I used a hand blender, was too lazy to peel the tomatoes (but it was fine), and skipped the creme fraiche. Definitely a keeper!
