Roasted Tomato Soup

  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 3h

6 servings, about 3/4 cup each

Roasting tomatoes gives them an intense, sweet flavor and also makes them very easy to peel. The soup is then chilled, making a refreshing first course on a hot summer night.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

ingredients

  • 8-10 ripe tomatoes (3 pounds), cut in half and seeded
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

directions

Preheat broiler. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place tomatoes on the prepared baking sheet, cut-side down. Broil until skins are blistered, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Slip off the skins and chop the tomatoes coarsely.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until the onions are very soft, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and process until smooth; return to the saucepan. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in basil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover loosely and refrigerate until chilled, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
