Roasted Tomato Soup
From: Brian, UK

This soup is quick, easy & delicious.

Preparation time : 10 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Total time : 30 minutes

Serves: 4

  • 1 kilo (2lb) tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • 4 tsp balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Place the tomatoes, red
onion and garlic in a roasting tin and drizzle with the olive oil.
Season and roast for 20 minutes until softened and slightly charred.

2. Meanwhile, crumble the stock cubes into a large pan, add 1 litre
(1.5 pints) of hot water, mix well and bring to the boil. Turn off the
heat, add the roasted tomato mixture and whizz with a hand-held
electric blender until smooth (or allow to cool slightly then pour
into a blender in batches to liquidise).

3. Ladle the soup into 4 bowls then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
Serve with crusty French bread.

This soup is also delicious served cold.
