I have been searching for a new tomato soup recipe. I’ve tried many versions over the years, and just never found any that captured my imagination and made me want to make it over and over again. I happened to get a deal on some good roma tomatoes, odd for this time of year, so I felt that I needed to try once again to find a good tomato soup recipe. And this is it. Roasting the tomatoes with the spices adds a wonderfully smoky, spicy taste to this creamy soup. My husband tasted it and his eyes grew wide as he said, “Wow, that’s really good.” It’s now our favorite tomato soup.

    I made this soup for my family tonight and it was soooooooo good. Turned out just like you said and the flavors scream out at you. Loved it. I’ll have to make a lot more next time and freeze it for later. It should be noted that this serves about 3.

    I have been looking for a recipe to use my tomatoes in. Looking forward to giving it a try, always love things with a smokey flavour. Will report back if it passes the fussy family taste test!
