You can even use this soup as a homemade pasta sauce on top of roasted spaghetti squash by adding less liquid.

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs (1.4kgs) of ripe tomatoes
  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 1 – 2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1 brown onion, chopped finely
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cups (1 L) vegetable broth or stock
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil, chopped

Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup

  • Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
  • Slice tomatoes in half and drizzle with oil, salt and pepper on a baking tray.
  • Break the garlic bulb into cloves and place on the same baking tray with skins still on. Bake the tomatoes and garlic for 45 minutes.
  • While the tomatoes are cooking, over a low-moderate heat, saute the onions until they are translucent. Add the tomato paste and stir for 2 minutes then add the vegetable stock and simmer gently. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once the tomatoes are cooked, allow to cool and chop them up for a chunky consistency OR add them whole to the saute pan with the stock and use a stick blender to smash up.
  • Squeeze the garlic cloves so a paste comes out of them into the soup and stir well.
  • Add the fresh basil and serve warm.
