Ready In:
4 Bowls




  • Combine the tomatoes, onion and garlic in a mixing bowl and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Lay out on a baking tray and sprinkle with the thyme, basil and sugar. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees until caramelized.
  • Pour the tomatoes into a blender and puree. While the blender is running, ladle in hot stock to smooth the soup. You may not use all of the stock. Chicken Stock may be subsitituted for vegetable stock.
  • For garnish, heat 2 tbsp olive oil, lightly sauté 4 small clusters of cherry tomatos on the vine. Serve on top of the soup with 4 basil leaves, thinly sliced.

  1. Used this for a catering didn't bother with heavy cream. Turned out fantastic and best part is I don't have to change anything for vegan requests. I do recommend using an immersion blender or if you increase the recipe and beyond 4 or 5 people though.
  2. I added my own touch by adding 1 tablespoon of quality tomato purée and a splash of balsamic vinegar (roasting stage) and touch of oregano..tastes great!!
  3. I've watched Gordon make this soup online - he adds cream to the recipe after the chicken or veg broth. He also uses a hand mixer and blends everything in the pan - I'm going to make it tonight along with the Welsh Rabbit!
  4. This summer my garden Romas only grew to the size of a grape tomato =( .Still, I was getting them by the bucketful so I made this soup. It's very good, though I agree it needed more salt at the end. The roasted veggies gave the soup a wonderful richness. I estimated the amount of tomatoes to be around 2 pounds. Thanks for posting this recipe!
  5. The end result was pretty tasty, although the directions were not so clear. I didn't know how long to expect the tomatoes the carmelize, but 30 minutes seemed to do the trick. I let them cool off before putting in the blender, because that can be dangerous with hot food! I used 2 cups of chicken stock, which seemed to being it to the right consistency, and sauteed grape tomatoes for the garnish. I ended up adding more salt before I served it. All in all, I was pleased with the result. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
