Fall into Soup

Roasted Cherry Tomato Soup

It's Fall in Ontario and the weather has shifted to cold and grey days where all you want to do is curl up with a hot bowl of soup and watch all the new shows on TV.  Grab those sweaters, throws and curl up on the couch with this bowl of Roasted Cherry Tomato Soup. 
I added a boost of flavour using new Herbamare Bouillon Cubes provided by A. Vogel Canada.  

I created this quick recipe for the Herbamare Broth Challenge and you can follow along fellow food bloggers recipes on social media using the hashtag #howdoyouherbamare

RECIPE

1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
2 roma tomatoes
1 clove garlic
1 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 Herbamare® Bouillon Cube
4 cups of water
salt and pepper
smoked salt (optional)
Flat leaf parsley sprigs for garnish
Packaged Garlic croutons or make your own

DIRECTIONS

Using a cookie sheet spread the washed cherry tomatoes on a parchment lined sheet.  Cut the roma tomatoes into quarters and add to the pan.  Pour the olive oil over the tomatoes and crush the garlic and add it to the tomatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add a pinch of smoked salt if you have some or you can also add smoked paprika.   Mix the tomatoes to coat everything and then roast in the oven at 400ºF until they are soft and just starting to char about 20 minutes or so depending on your oven.  When done remove and blend with a stick blender or you can add it to a blender.  I used a stick blender.  

In a separate saucepan/pot add the 4 cups of water and the Herbamare bouillon cube, tomato paste and bring to a boil.  Add the pureed tomato mixture and dried basil and/or fresh parsley and continue to simmer on medium for about 15 minutes.

Pour into a serving bowl and top with croutons and parsley sprig.  You can also grate parmesan cheese on top or add sour cream if you like.  Serves 2-4

Grab a spoon and hit the couch and turn on your favourite TV show and enjoy!

Don't forget to share the recipe with your friends and family if you like it.  And take a selfie with your soup and hashtag #howdoyouherbamare if you like it.
