Category Vegetable
If you are left with a lot of ripe tomatoes from your garden this fall, use them to make this delicious tomato soup. The vegetables are roasted in the oven to add a deep flavor to this classic comfort food.

This recipe uses roasted tomato and zucchini to impart a deeper flavor to this basic marinara sauce. The vegetables could also be grilled instead of roasted in the oven.

I originally made this in the summer, when these veggies are in season but I didn't get it posted until now. Serve with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich for the perfect comfort food for a cold winter's night.


  • 3 lb tomatoes (I filled a produce bag)
  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch Italian basil


  1. Cut vegetables into similar sized chunks. I quartered the tomatoes and onion and cut the zucchini lengthwise, then roughly chopped it. The garlic just needs to be peeled.

  3. Add all chopped vegetables (except basil) into a large bowl. Add oil, salt and pepper and mix to coat the vegetables. Pour out onto a large baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour, until the vegetables are turning brown and are looking soft. Allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Add all vegetables to a blender, adding in the basil and enough water or broth to enable the blender to run properly. Pulse until it is the proper consistency. If you prefer chunky vegetables instead of a smooth soup, just reserve a few to blend slightly at the end or chop them to the desired size.

  7. Add blended soup to a large pot and simmer for at least 15-20 minutes. Add water and additional spices as desired.
  8. Serve with a garnish of basil or a sprinkling of cheese. Or, of course, a grilled cheese sandwich for dunking.
