This oven roasted tomato soup recipe will result in a bowl of lip-smacking, spoon-licking bowl of delicacy! It has the perfect balance between the sour from tomatoes, sweet from sugar, heat from black pepper and a subtle roasted flavor from the roasted garlic and tomatoes.
Tomato chaat, Tomato Pulav, Stuffed Tomato fritters, Tomato slush and now the oven roasted tomato soup. That is the list of tomato based recipes on Yummily Yours! I guess it is time to make it official now. I am an addict, a tomato addict! I must say, I completely missed the signs until these:
I went grocery shopping and picked a whole lot of tomatoes on the vine. Now, I dint think it was a whole lot. I had a few recipes lined up in my mind. But, at the billing counter, the man raises his eyebrows looking at my bag and says “You seem to like tomatoes”. I smiled and said “yeah” and then checked my receipt to see I had 8 pounds of tomatoes in my bag!! 😀
If you follow the blog regularly, you might have noticed that I like to take a shot of the ingredients I will be working with. As usual, I clicked my pictures and was showing them to Nachiket while he exclaimed “How many times are you going to shoot tomatoes!!” That got me thinking and I checked my hard drive. Voila! Multiple shots of tomato taken at various stages of blogging 😛
Sigh! That makes me an addict I guess. All I can say in my defense is, Tomato soup uses a lot of tomatoes which partly explains the 8 pounds and its ok that I keep clicking photos of tomatoes because I have scale to compare my bettering photography skills. Here’s the proof 😛

After the not so humble photo display, time to get back to recipe on hand. Oven roasted tomato soup. Once I was done cooking it, I took a spoonful for my mother in law to taste it and I swear, she exclaimed “Yummy! So much better than a restaurant”. Her involuntary expressions, I knew this recipe was a keeper!
