Tonight’s Dinner – Roasted Tomato and Garlic Soup

Posted by reeeeeen on September 11, 2007

Makes 6 servings  POINTS® value | 1 per serving Ingredients

 2 pounds tomatoes, halved
• 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
• 6 peeled garlic cloves
• 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves
• 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
• 2 cups no-salt, fat-free vegetable broth
• 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 1 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

2. Place the tomatoes, onion, garlic, rosemary and thyme on a large, rimmed baking sheet; roast until shriveled and starting to brown, about 45 minutes.  

3. Now you can either: 

Scrape everything from the baking sheet into a food processor fitted with the chopping blade; process until puréed.   Pour the contents of the food processor canister into a large saucepan


Scrape everything in 2 batches into a food mill (my preference) and process into a large saucepan. 

4. Stir in the broth, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Uncover & simmer 5 more minutes.   

Serving size: 1 cup

    Ooooh! Yum! I bet it would even be good if you stopped after the roasting step and tossed it with some pasta or something.

    It would, but with the balsamic, and a dash of chipotle tabasco, it was a GREAT tomato soup.
