Tomato Soup?

Anyone have a killer tomato soup recipe to share? Roasted tomato maybe? Thanks so much in advanced.

    1. Good old fashioned tomato soup cake.

      1. My phone won't let me get the links. :-(

        Roasted tomato-and-corn soup on, click on recipes, then go to tomatoes. There should be a cream of tomato soup recipe there.

        Sorry I can't just post the links! I will get them when I get back on my computer. Anyway, those are my two current favorites. Different flavors for different moods. :-)

        1. I have made roasted tomato soup and didn't taste much of a difference. I find it's best when I can buy summer tomatoes from the local farmer and simmer them with chicken stock and Italian herbs in the crockpot.

          1. re: sisterfunkhaus

            In the winter I roast canned tomatos - sometimes add a little brown sugar while they are roasting. They caramelize on the outside and for me make the soup much richer.

          2. I really like this non-traditional version:

            I make my own version that is super tomatoe-y:
            Sautee together: a good glug of olive oil, a chopped onion, two cloves garlic chopped and half a small can of tomato paste. After onion is transluscent i add a big can of muir glen organic whole tomatoes, chopped sun dried tomatoes, half tomato juice and half v8 original as the liquid. Simmer for about a half hour, then blitzed together with an immersion blender as smooth as you like it. Sometimes i'll add white beans or a big handful of instant oats while simmering so when its blitzed together its a bit thicker.
            The v8 provides salt, i add a bunch of fresh pepper to my own when serving.
