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 out of a tin.
This soup tastes amazing - roasting the tomatoes, onion and garlic caramelizes the natural sugar which intensifies the flavour and fills 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 for 40-50 minutes before blending in the Thermomix.
The main ingredients for this soup are tomatoes, red onion, basil and garlic. I've used Roma tomatoes for this recipe but any tomatoes will do. For some added flavour, I've used a little balsamic vinegar and vegetable stock to thin it down. 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!
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 freeze really well, just transfer it to a freezer-proof container or zip lock bag and allow 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.
