Using Fresh Tomatoes
- The easiest way to cook fresh tomatoes for soup is to roast them.
- This will bring out their flavor while providing hand-free cooking!
- When tomatoes are out of season I add a few cherry tomatoes to the mix since they are sweeter than off-season tomatoes. We'll sweeten them up further by adding a red bell pepper too.
If you are low on tomatoes and need some more veggies to bulk it out, try my Roasted Tomato and Eggplant Soup Recipe. This is a fantastic off-season tomato soup recipe that feels like a warm bite of summer!
Do you have to peel the tomatoes?
I know there are different schools of thought on this one, but I say no need to peel the tomatoes before roasting them and adding them to your soup. Not only is it way easier this way, but I feel it's tastier too since your soup has a bit more bulk to it when the skin is left on.
- I usually just go with salt and pepper and then garnish with pesto and basil. But you could also add dried basil, or rosemary, or a pinch of some Herbs de Provence would also be nice too.
- Once your soup is pureed and ladled into bowls, add a dollop of fresh pesto and a few fresh mozzarella balls, then garnish with a fresh basil leaf or two. It's a bite of pure heaven.
- The classic choice would be my Parmesean Encrusted Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
- Or better yet, cut your grilled cheese sandwich into tiny 1" squares for some grilled cheese croutons! That would be even better!
- You could also serve my delicious Foccacia Soup with Caramelized Shallots and Thyme or my easy Parmesean Tuiles too!
