Tomato Basil Soup
Cozy up with a steaming bowl of homemade tomato basil soup! Made with fresh tomatoes and basil, this recipe is easy, nourishing, and delicious.
You only need a handful of ingredients to make this roasted tomato basil soup:
Roma tomatoes – Just like in my homemade salsa recipe, the tomato variety you use here matters. If you can’t find roma tomatoes, substitute another variety of small plum tomatoes. Larger heirloom or salad tomatoes are too watery for this recipe.
Onion and garlic – They add savory depth of flavor.
Carrot – It makes this soup nice and creamy without any nuts or heavy cream.
Balsamic vinegar – For tang!
Thyme leaves – For fresh, aromatic flavor.
Fresh basil – You can’t make tomato basil soup without it! I blend in the basil right at the end so that it keeps its fresh flavor and flecks the soup with green.
Extra-virgin olive oil – It gives the soup body and richness.
Vegetable broth – It creates the soup’s flavorful base.
And sea salt and freshly ground black pepper – To make all the flavors pop!
