Roasted Heirloom Tomato Soup

Please enjoy my first foray into the movie making world. Lol, it's just my Instagram story turned feature film- and it's less than a minute! Note: I mention quinoa stuffed acorn squash - saving that one for another day! Apologies for poor lighting- I finally got a food light for evening meals!

This soup is 5 (store bought) ingredients and is perfection. Great for cool end of summer evenings, and maybe one of the easiest recipes EVER. So fast. So easy. It's perfect for a weeknight. 

It is approved for both months of the program, but don't use any cheese garnish if you are in month 2. I promise, this soup is so flavorful- you will barely notice it! 


  • I used 3 small, 4 large heirloom, 2 medium tomatoes …  on average 9-10 med sized tomatoes. Use heirlooms if you can for amazing flavor. 
  • 6-8 (depending on size) garlic cloves, peeled and whole
  • 1 small yellow or sweet onion, quartered 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4-6 basil leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • Option: sprinkle of parmesan cheese, grated
  • Option: try with 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and cut tomatoes, placing in a shallow baking dish cut side down. Add onion pieces, garlic, and basil to the pan. Drizzle vegetables in the pan with olive oil (and optionally with balsamic vinegar.) Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes.

Place roasted vegetables (tongs are great for this) in food processor bowl or blender. Pulse until you reach desired consistency. I made mine thicker, and it felt very hearty! An immersion blender also works very well. 

The soup will be hot without reheating necessary. Serve garnished with cheese if desired.
