So I made this soup to really use up the tomatoes we had around, I would have used a recipe but my mom was on the computer, so I figured, heck I can make my own! I'm really glad that I wrote everything down. This has got to be one of the best soups ever! Or you could just talk out the stalk and use it for a sauce on noodles.

Tangy Country Style Tomato Soup
(serves two full bowls for dinner)

1 medium yellow onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 cups campier tomatoes
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme

2 Tbs white wine vinegar
5 cups low sodium stalk (vegetable, chicken, turkey)
2 tsp sweet chili
1/2 cup half and half or milk

Day old baguette (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 F

Roughly chop the onion, mince garlic, cut tomatoes in chunks. Toss vegetables with olive oil and seasonings on a baking tray, squish some of the tomatoes with your hands. Bake for about 50 minutes or until caramelized.

Scrape roasted vegetable mixture into a medium sized cooking pot.

Add white wine vinegar, stir, let liquid evaporate.

Add stock, I used homemade turkey stock so it wasn't as salty, if using canned stock  omit salt from roasted vegetable mixture. Let simmer about 30 minutes covered.

Let cool, add half and half.

Serve with cubes of baguette.



















You really should try it!!!

This looks delicious!  especially since I've just been to the store to buy canned tomato soup  Sad

Excuse my UK ignorance, are campier tomatoes - normal tomatoes?

This looks fantastic!  Lucky you, and awesome job with what sounds like a very tasty recipe.  Thank you so much for the recipe and the photos!

I would love to try it, but we're in the middle of a sleet storm, our car with 4-wheel drive is hemorrhaging oil, and the only other car I have to drive is a tiny little sporty thing!  Not going to brave it to the store, but as soon as I get a chance, I am adding this on my list of things to make.  It seems like it would be fairly low-calorie, too!

It would be so nice to have some on such a cold dreary day.  Oh well.  Smiley

yay! im glad you all really want to try to make this! XD

im sure you can use any kind of tomatoes really. but definitely make sure that you do have some kind of cherry or sweet tomato in the lot.

also its kind of small proportions, so double it if your making it for more. i kept tasting it while i made it so im sure that had an impact. hehe.

please let me know how it turns out!

I made it and it tasted DELICIOUS! I used some dried whole chipotle that I had instead of sweet chili. (I just roasted them with the veggies and then pulled them out before I put them into the soup.) I used a bit more milk to get the same color you had in your pictures, but I had a few more tomatoes too, so that's probably the reason.

Thank you so much for sharing. My husband would thank you too, but his mouth's full. Smiley I'm pretty sure this is going to become a staple around our house.
