Spice up your soul - cook with Praj: Roasted Tomato Basil Soup - Fall Season for the Soul

Spice up your soul - cook with Praj: Roasted Tomato Basil Soup - Fall Season for the Soul | Roasted Tomato Basil Soup | Scoop.it

And after the sunny breeze , the temperature dropped overnight. Good bye Summer, I say to myself lighting pumpkin spice candles for the evening . I know that we still have to wait for the real Fall Season in Dallas but a cold breeze in September definitely gives me an early start. 

Some fresh tomatoes and olive baguette from Trader Joe's and a chilly evening ! Time for some hot soup & bread .


Here is a quick and easy recipe for a simple roasted Tomato Basil Soup
Ingredients:

4-5 plum tomatoes  3-4 garlic cloves 2 medium size onions 2 tsp. olive oil  1 tsp. butter  2 tsp. fresh crème salt  5-6 basil leaves  1 tsp. crushed black pepper  2 cups Chicken Broth ( if the broth is salted then adjust the salt for the soup accordingly) Baguette Instructions Cut the tomatoes into half , tossed in 2 tsp. olive oil and sprinkle some salt.   Then lay the tomatoes on a baking sheet and roast them at 450 F for 20 minutes On a separate sheet, roast 4-5 garlic cloves.  While the tomatoes roast , slice 2 medium size white onions and 3 green chillies. In a stockpot, heat 3 tsp. olive oil and 1 tsp. butter. Add onions and chillies and stir for 10 minutes or until the onions turn slight brown in color.Stir in the roasted garlic for a smoky roasted flavor and toss in the chopped basil leaves. My soup is ready to eat ! With the warmth of my pumpkin spice candle, I savor this simple healthy hot soup with a bite of the olive baguette ! And as Elizabeth Lawrence said "Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn " , I wish to enjoy this journey to welcome the season !
