This vibrant and nourishing Thermomix Roasted Tomato Soup is the ultimate comfort food on a chilly day. It's easy to prepare and far tastier than anything from a tin.
This soup tastes amazing - roasting the tomatoes, onion, and garlic caramelizes the natural sugar, intensifying the flavour and filling the house with a wonderfully rich aroma.
It takes less than ten minutes to prepare. All you do is cut the tomatoes in half along with the red onion and garlic and roast them for 40-50 minutes before blending them in the Thermomix.
We love this soup with a dollop of Thermomix Pesto and Soft Bread Bread Rolls.
Olive oil -
Tomatoes - I've used Roma tomatoes for this recipe, but any tomatoes will do.
Red onion -
Fresh basil -
Vegetable stock - used to thin the soup down if needed. It's important not to add too much stock at first, as there's nothing worse than a runny soup which can't be rescued!
Step by Step Directions
1. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them on a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Peel and quarter the onion. Peeling the garlic is unnecessary as it can be squeezed out of its skin when cooked.
2. Roast in the oven for 40-50 minutes until soft and starting to caramelize.
Blending the Soup
It's entirely up to you how long you blend it for - if you like a thick, chunky soup, blend for less time, and if you like a smoother soup, blend a bit longer. If you wanted to, you could strain the seeds after blending, but I find this creates a lot of mess, and I'm lazy, so don't bother.
This soup tastes amazing, served with warm crusty bread or my freshly baked soft bread rolls and a sprinkling of fresh Parmesan. You could also drizzle some olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top.
For a substantial meal, this soup would pair brilliantly with a grilled cheese sandwich!
To Make Ahead and Freeze
This soup freezes really well; just transfer it to a freezer-proof container or zip-lock bag and allow it to cool completely. Remember to write the portion size on it and the date frozen. To thaw out, leave in the fridge overnight then heat up on the stove or in the Thermomix when ready to use.
If you do have any leftovers, this soup can also be used for pizza toppings and pasta sauce.
