Roasted Tomato Veggie Soup (Recipe!)

      2 Comments on Roasted Tomato Veggie Soup (Recipe!)

Being sick this week has meant forced rest. I don’t just mean skipping several workouts, but in general trying to take a slower approach to rest my body and my mind. To find comfort in a place of quiet and relaxation, something that if you know me is far from easy. It’s meant a week of lots of tea, vitamin C, water, greens, and soup. Thankfully, all things I enjoy.

I woke up Friday morning after my trip to Boston with no voice. After a late night out talking to artists and managers for work, I woke up Saturday morning with even less of a voice and a sore throat. By the time I woke up Sunday morning, I was coughing. I knew at that moment I needed to up my game; I hit up the grocery store for vitamin rich juice & some items to make soup. I didn’t really have a recipe I was following but I knew I didn’t feel like eating soup out of a can. Thankfully I kept track of what I did because it turned out really tasty!

 

Consider this my new soup – whether healthy, sick or just looking for something warm and comforting on a cold winter’s night while sitting by the Christmas tree.

 

Roasted Tomato Veggie Soup

by Katie Arnold

Keywords: appetizer entree soup/stew gluten-free vegan vegetarian fall winter

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • About 1 cup each celery & mushrooms, diced
  • 2-2 1/2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 med bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • About 1-1 1/2 c cherry tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 container veg broth

Instructions

Begin by tossing cherry tomatoes in a little olive oil, salt & pepper. Cut off top of a head of garlic and wrap in tin foil leaving opening to drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper; wrap up and stick on tray with the tomatoes. Toss in 375* oven until tomatoes begin to burst.

Meanwhile, toss all veggies in a big pot with olive oil, salt & pepper. After a couple minutes, toss in your bay leaves (I used two, but you could do 1 if you’d like). Cook until soft.

Take your tomatoes and garlic out of the oven. Toss in tomatoes and squeeze garlic cloves from the bulb (careful, it will be hot!). Stir for a minute and pour in veggie broth and simmer for awhile. I let mine go for about an hour. Remove from heat and serve.

To top my soup, I used crushed up plantain chips but you could use saltines or whatever your favorite cracker. Soup would also be good with noodles, rice or (for you meat eaters) chicken.

*Note: I did not mash up the garlic as roasting it really softens & sweetens it but you could always mash it up and then add it to the soup.

    Mmm… tomato soup of any kind is definitely a favorite of mine! I hope you’re starting to feel better. Although I think you are considering your most recent feisty state 🙂 And random, but it is snowing on your blog?! There are white dots floating around and it looks like snow, haha!
