We are in that weird limbo when fall is approaching, but it still feels like summer. That’s where this Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup comes in. Use up all of those ripe tomatoes AND get some comfort food at the same time. This soup is creamy, buttery & delicious – and the parmesan toast it is served with doesn’t hurt!

Step One: Roast the Tomatoes & Garlic

To prep the garlic, cut the top half inch of the head off to expose the cloves. Do this to 2 heads of garlic and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

For the tomatoes, you can use whichever type you want – I went with a mix of cherry, campari and roma. You can halve the smaller tomatoes and quarter the larger ones. Place them on the baking sheet with the garlic and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Note: Be sure to add a little extra oil to the exposed garlic cloves. I also left the vines on the tomatoes purely for the pretty look – you can remove the vines before roasting.

Place the tomatoes & garlic in the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes. The tomatoes should be burst & juicy and the garlic should be tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Step Two: Prep the Onions & Blend the Soup

While the tomatoes are cooling, melt some vegan butter in a stock pot and add a chopped yellow onion, fresh thyme and dried oregano. Cook down for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are tender. Remove the onions from the heat.

Grab a blender and add the onions, tomatoes, garlic (being sure to push the cloves out of the skin), broth and fresh basil. Blend on high until smooth.

Note: You can reserve some of the tomatoes to use as garnish.

Pour the soup back into the stock pot and add some more broth, non-dairy cream and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Bring the soup to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step Three: Make the Parmesan Toast

Obviously the soup is great on its own, but this parmesan toast takes it over the top!

Slice a baguette and add some vegan butter to each side. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place small piles of vegan parmesan in the skillet – about the same size as the bread slices. Place one piece of bread on top of each pile and gently press the bread down.

The parmesan should start to brown and stick to the bread. Once it is crispy, flip the bread and brown the other side. Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining toast.

Step Four: Serve

When the soup has reduced slightly, add some more fresh basil and give it a taste. Adjust the salt & pepper as needed. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with the reserved tomatoes and more fresh basil. Serve with the parmesan toast on the side for some delicious dipping action.

This soup is comforting and so tasty! This can be made ahead of time for easy lunches, or frozen for quick meals.

FOR THE PARMESAN TOAST

  • vegan parmesan

Equipment

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the tomatoes in halves, quarters or leave whole and place on the baking sheet with the garlic heads. Drizzle with olive oil – being sure to add a little extra to the exposed garlic. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and place in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the tomatoes have burst and the garlic is tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • While the tomatoes are cooling, melt the butter in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onion, thyme & oregano. Cook down until the onions are tender – about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • To a blender add the onions, 1/2 the basil, tomatoes* & their juices, and the garlic (squeezed from their skin). Pour in 1 cup of broth and blend on high until smooth.
  • Place the empty stock pot back on the stove over medium heat and pour in the soup, remaining broth, cream and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Chop the remaining basil and add it to the soup. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.
  • To make the toast, slice the baguette and add some vegan butter to each side. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place small piles of vegan parmesan in the skillet – about the same size as the bread slices. Place one piece of bread on top of each pile and gently press the bread down. Once the parmesan is crispy, flip the bread and brown the other side. Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining toast.
  • To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, top with the reserved tomatoes & more basil. Serve the bread on the side.
