Why this Recipe is Best

There’s nothing like a bowl of roasted tomato soup to make you remember childhood.

Now that I’m a grownup though, I like to make grownup food (well, besides these Rice Krispie Treats, I mean, grownups LOVE them too)! No more cans of soup in our house. Especially since making this Roasted Tomato Soup is so incredibly easy.

Every year, I grow a ridiculous amount of tomatoes in my garden. I like to be able to make homemade spaghetti sauce and can a ton of salsa! Plus, extra tomatoes for chili in the winter is always a lovely thing!

And this homemade bruschetta recipe is out of this world!

Two years ago I learned a lifesaving trick with tomatoes. If you’ve ever canned tomatoes you know what a mess it can be to blanch them, peel them, dice them, etc. I usually end up the day with shriveled fingers that have burns on them from the hot tomatoes.


PRO TIP: I freeze them. Whole. 

Yes, you read that correctly. I scoop out the stem, wash and dry them after picking them, then slide them (single layer) into freezer safe ziploc bags.

Stack those bags in the freezer (I usually end up every summer with about 12 bags of tomatoes, which is A LOT).

When a recipe calls for “stewed, diced, or crushed tomatoes”, I grab my frozen ones instead of a can.

How to Peel Tomatoes

  • Run the frozen tomato under cold water for about 15 seconds.
  • Slide your nail under the peel, while in cold water, and the peel just FALLS OFF
  • Repeat and enjoy!

Now, how about we get to making some homemade Roasted Tomato Soup!

Step by Step Instructions

Roast Tomatoes.

You’ll want about 12 Roma tomatoes for this recipe, cut in half lengthwise. I’ll be using frozen tomatoes, but feel free to use fresh! Toss them in a bowl with your olive oil, salt and pepper.

You’ll roast these in your oven at 400°F for 45 minutes. From frozen they take a little bit longer, just check them at 45 minutes. Now for the fun part!

Puree Tomatoes.

You can add your tomatoes to a LARGE blender to get them pureed. I personally pour them into a soup pot (I love this Cast Iron Dutch Oven) and then I use an immersion blender to puree my tomatoes.

I find it works amazing, and gives me less dishes and mess than trying to do all this in the blender.

Make the soup.

Once I’ve pureed my tomatoes, I add the remaining ingredients to my soup, and heat over low heat and simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour.

The longer you simmer, the more flavor it has (and a better color and texture too)!


When I’m ready to serve I drizzle a little bit of heavy cream into the bowl and top with croutons (or serve with a side of peanut butter sandwiches, haha)! Don’t forget a pinch of parmesan cheese and fresh basil too.

  1. Whoa! You just blew my mind with the freezing trick for peeling tomatoes. I think I love you! I have to try that. I love roasted tomato soup and we make it all the time but I usually just leave on the skins. My tomato plants went nuts this summer and I still have some tomatoes ripening!
