Roasted Tomato Soup


  • Cooking pot
  • Oven
  • Blender
  • Bowl


  • 3 pounds cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsps tomato paste
  • 2 large onion, chopped
  • 3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Put tomatoes and garlic in a baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30-40 minutes, tossing halfway through. Once done, mast to break up garlic and tomatoes.
  2. Heat 2 tbsps oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook the onions for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and cook for another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This slow cooking of the onions draws out maximum flavor.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high, add tomato paste, and cook, stirring, until slightly darkened in color, about 2 minutes. Add roasted tomato mixture and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors meld, 15–20 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  4. Working in batches, purée tomato mixture in a blender until very smooth (make sure the lid is slightly ajar to let steam escape; cover with a towel). Transfer to a large bowl or pitcher.
  5. Pour the soup back into pot. Taste and season with salt and pepper; keep warm.
  6. Top with basil leaves and serve.
