How do I make tomato soup with fresh tomatoes?
I find tomato soup is really great with fresh tomatoes. The easiest way to cook them down and bring out their flavor is by roasting them first. When tomatoes are out of season I add cherry tomatoes since they are sweeter and then sweeten them up further by adding a red bell pepper.
Do you have to peel tomatoes to make soup?
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 to your soup. Not only is it way easier this way, but I feel tastier too since your soup has a bit more bulk to it.
What Spices to Add to Tomato Soup?
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 some bowls, add a garnish add a dollop of fresh pesto, and a few fresh mozzarella balls and it’s a bite of heaven.
What goes best with tomato soup?
Well, the classic choice would be a grilled cheese sandwich. Or better yet, cut your grilled cheese sandwich into tiny 1″ squares for some grilled cheese croutons! That would be even better!
