Roasted Tomato Soup

I am not much of a tomato soup fan.  I love the tomato basil soup from La Madeleine, but that was it…until I made this.  I made this for my BFF and her husband(who welcomed a baby boy into the world today), and while I tasted it to make sure it had enough seasoning, I knew I would need to make some for myself.

It was very easy with using canned tomatoes.  I used Muir Glen organic tomatoes which are fabulous.  This was perfect with grilled cheese sandwiches on a chilly evening or can be frozen for a later time.

    Will try this one as I am always making tomato soup. We love the Muir Glen tomatoes as well…the fire roasted ones are my favorites! Always reminds me of Muir Woods. You have it photographed so nicely…it’s just tomato soup and you make it look so elegant and irresistible.
