Autumn is upon us and soup season has officially arrived. There’s nothing quite as soul-feeding than a bowl of warm and nourishing homemade soup. Probably the most classic and beloved is creamy tomato soup. We are so grateful to Sara Forte of the Sprouted Kitchen for sharing one of her simplest and most popular recipes of all time. She has such a way with vegetables and we love how she encourages us to get back in our kitchens and cook. We recently interviewed Sara and loved hearing how she got started as a food blogger and her success as a 2-time cookbook author. Listen in to hear her story here; we promise you’ll be motivated to hit your local farmer’s market and get cooking.
This is not your standard can of tomato soup people, its rich and creamy and oh so yummy. This recipe is incredibly easy and perfect for feeding your family, friends, or curing a weekend of too much indulging. The key is the roasting of the vegetables which unleashes their natural juices and sweetness. Essentially you’re caramelizing them which we all know is where the flavor’s at. Also, let’s not forget about the yumminess of roasted garlic. A bonus is that your house will smell absolutely fantastic.
For anyone on a restrictive diet, this recipe can easily comply. Simply omit the cream and cheesy toast if you’re avoiding dairy, the soup is quite velvety on it’s own. For added protein and goodness, you could substitute the chicken stock for a quality bone broth. If you’re feeling like a little heat, go ahead and add a roasted red pepper and some spicy paprika.
For all of Sara’s thoughts and recipe details, head over to her site and give the whole post a read. She’s a warm and thoughtful writer always inspiring us to pay attention to the quality of our food and where it comes from in a very unpretentious way.
