Servings: 4 servings
- 1 pint grape tomatoes
- 1 TBS grapeseed or olive oil
- 1 TBS chopped ginger
- 1/2 cup chopped Vidalia onion
- 3 cloves garlic minced 2 TBS or garlic paste
- 2 14.5 ounce cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- 1- quart vegetable stock
- Handful of fresh Basil
- Kosher salt & black pepper
- Optional: for heat, add a few pinches of cayenne pepper
- Optional: 1/2 TBS sugar
- Optional: fresh basil leaves
- Garnish: Pepitas
Heat your oven to 300 degrees.
Place tomatoes in a small baking dish or in some aluminum foil (with the top open) and roast them for 35 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow them to sit in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.If you are running out, they can sit there until cool. You can do this a day ahead if you like)
When ready to make the soup. Heat oil in a medium pot, saute onions and ginger for a few minutes, add in garlic and roasted tomatoes and saute for a couple more minutes, you can press down on the tomatoes with the back of a spoon or a potato masher to "pop" them if you like.
Add canned tomatoes and vegetable stock, season and bring to a simmer.
Simmer for 10 minutes, add in Basil and season some more until you get the taste you desire.
Decide if you want to puree your soup or leave it chunky (I like it mostly pureed). Using an immersion blender or traditional blender/Vitamix. Puree soup.
Enjoy hot, room temperature or cold. Garnish with a handful of pepitas (pumpkin seeds), chives or scallions and Basil and enjoy!
Sometimes I add 1/2 TBS or so of sugar to this soup to help balance out the tomatoes. It's how I like it. Taste and decide if you want to add sugar or not.
If you want a spicy soup, add in 1/2 or a whole chopped jalapeno in the beginning...Just watch out and taste the jalapeno before you do, you never know how hot they may be, lol! You can also choose to add Cayenne pepper instead.
Enjoy the soup chunky or puree it. I like it mostly pureed.
This soup keeps for a week in the refrigerator. Enjoy it hot, room temperature or cold.
