Fire roasted tomato soup is a smoky, delicious winter dish you’ll love. I use an easy method to caramelize onions, add a grated carrot for sweetness, and canned fire roasted tomatoes for ease. Serve the soup with this broccoli cheddar grilled cheese sandwich for a healthy-ish take on American comfort food.
I might be aging myself here, but one of my favorite commercials growing up was for Campbell’s canned soup. In the 1993 commercial, a snowman walks into a cozy kitchen, sits down at the table and tucks into a piping hot bowl of soup. As the snowman continues to slurp the soup, the snow melts away revealing a smiling little boy at the table. The narrator cheerfully announces that “nothing melts away the cold like a delicious hot bowl of Campbell’s soup.”
I don’t know if my early amusement at a soup commercial played a role but a hot bowl of soup (preferably served with a grilled cheese sandwich) is one of my favorite meals. I never tire of it and I’ve been cooking a myriad of soups this past quarter.
Check out some of my recipes from earlier this year:
This fire roasted tomato soup is one of my new favorites because it’s full of flavor and requires only 8 ingredients. Caramelizing the onions and adding a grated carrot adds sweetness and balances the acidity of tomatoes without requiring processed sugar. I opt for canned tomatoes since they’re always in season and add a touch of cream to round out the flavors.
I hope you cozy up with a hot bowl of this soup and let the cold melt away.Print
