Ah tomato soup, the perfect grilled cheese companion! Here’s one of my versions of this classic soup with a barbecue twist. And yes, I do realize that this is another tomato recipe, but there have been a lot of tomatoes in our diet lately, so it stands to reason that there would be a lot in this blog.
I used the barbecue in this recipe mainly for the flavour. If you wanted, you could do all the cooking on the barbecue, but the oven works just as well. I used this grilling basket that we got for Christmas, but you could just as easily do it with a baking sheet or aluminum foil.
Smoky Tomato Soup
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||50 minutes|
|Total time||1 hours, 5 minutes|
|Meal type||Lunch, Main Dish, Side Dish, Soup, Starter|
|Misc||Pre-preparable, Serve Hot|
- 16 tomatoes (halved)
- 2 medium onions (quartered and loosely separated)
- 1 bulb of garlic (separated and peeled [not chopped])
- 2 tablespoons Oil
- 6 cups water (or veggie broth) (I use fine herb broth)
- .5 cup chopped fresh basil
- salt and pepper (to taste)
This soup is super easy to make and tastes delicious too. It can be made as a standalone tomato soup, or as an incredible base for a more complex veggie soup. Either way, the smoky barbecue flavor shines through!
