- Tomatoes – Chop around eight tomatoes into small pieces.
- Red Bell Pepper – Slice your red bell pepper into thin pieces.
- Unsalted Butter – Add more flavor to your soup with the unsalted butter.
- Red Onion – Chop your red onion into small pieces to add bold flavor to this soup.
- Chicken Broth – Use the chicken broth as a base for the tomato soup.
- Heavy Cream – Add a bit of the heavy cream to make this soup creamier and more flavorful.
You’re also going to need oil, smashed and peeled garlic, dried basil, tomato paste, pepper, and salt. You can also add a bit of brown sugar to the soup for a slight touch of sweetness. It pulls some of the acidity out of the soup.
How To Make Roasted Tomato Soup
What can I use as a substitute for heavy cream?
If you don’t have heavy cream, you have a few options for a substitute in this recipe. First, you can use half-and-half as a replacement. If you don’t have half-and-half, combine whole milk with melted butter to prepare your own homemade heavy cream to add to this pot of soup.
Do I have to use red onion in this dish?
The red onion adds more flavor to this soup. However, if you only have a white onion or Spanish onion available to use, feel free to chop that up and add it to your pot of soup because it’s still going to taste amazing.
Do I need to put fresh garlic in this soup?
Fresh garlic is best because it’s full of flavor and has that fresh taste. If you’re willing to peel and chop it, be sure to use it. If not, you can always use minced garlic from the jar.
Can I make a low sodium version of this soup?
Absolutely. If you’d like to keep it low on sodium, use low-sodium chicken broth and omit the salt from this recipe. The soup will still taste great because of all the other ingredients you’re adding to it, including the heavy cream, red onion, and fresh garlic.
How to Store the Roasted Tomato Soup
After you’ve cooked your soup and served it, allow the rest of it to cool down before you pour it into a large airtight container. You can place the soup in the fridge to keep it fresh for up to five days. If you’d like to save the soup even longer than that, you can place it in the freezer, thawing it out in your fridge when you’re ready to enjoy it again.
