So the end of the outdoor gardening season is approaching and we have an over abundance of tomatoes! Here is an easy and delicious recipe for homemade tomato soup that we have made a few times this month 😉
Homemade Tomato Soup that will warm you on these chilly fall days
8-10 lbs of garden fresh tomatoes (about 10 tomatoes)
2 cups of milk
a stick of butter (I like to use Earth Balance, which is a buttery mixture of oils, or local butter)
3-4 garlic cloves
Some chopped onion (I like to eye-ball it for amount)
Sea salt and ground pepper
Roast tomatoes in pan with some olive oil, salt and pepper for about 45 min at 350 degrees.
Once roasted, you can either put tomatoes, garlic, onion, and basil in blender for a creamy blended soup, or if you like chunky soup you can just transfer tomatoes into pot and start adding your ingredients. Add butter and milk, and maybe a little more salt and pepper depending how you like it. Let simmer on the stove for 10 minutes or so or until you feel its ready. Make a grilled cheese sandwich and use soup for a dip. it is so yummy and perfect for this chilly fall weather!!
