Recipe: Roasted Garlicky Tomato Soup

Are you still looking a yummy soup to warm the hearts of your family and guests this season? Look no further and check out this Roasted Garlicky Tomato Soup. You might be wondering if roasting the tomatoes with garlic will make a difference, the answer is a definite ‘YES’.

Personally, in the past, I would choose a creamy mushroom soup over a tomato soup, as I do not like the sour-ish taste which came from the tomatoes. My daughter and my husband on the other hand always fancy tomato soup and over the years my son also began to like it. Being a curious person, I decided to make my own tomato soup. To my amazement, this taste so good and this soup became the highlight especially during the festive season.

This warm soup is so delicious when you stir in a teaspoon of heavy cream before serving and it definitely goes well with nicely toasted sliced baguette.

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at BeyondNorm.com in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.
