Roasted Tomato Basil Soup Is Superbly Comforting

Last Sunday I caught a Barefoot Contessa marathon on Food Network where one recipe stood out in my mind. So much that I went straight to the store to purchase the ingredients and made it that evening for dinner. The recipe was for roasted tomato soup with fresh basil. Although neither element is in season, the soup looked soothing, scrumptious, and hearty.It was featured on an episode devoted to healthier, feel-good food, so I didn't worry about serving myself an extra-large helping — it's that good! Unlike other roasted tomato soups, Ina's rendition is rich and flavorful without the addition of cream. The red pepper flakes provide a lovely heat. For the ultimate comfort meal, serve with a grilled cheese sandwich or homemade croutons. Want the recipe? All you have to do is

I made this last night and it is soooooo yummy! Thanks for the recipe! I didn't have red pepper flakes so I used a dash of hot sauce and I don't own a food mill or immersion blender so I pureed it in a regular blender and it came out great! I can't wait to have this soup with grilled cheese sammiches tonight!

i stepped away from my desk earlier, and came back to a hot bowl of homemade roasted tomato soup that my co-worker left for me. it was AWESOME. he didn't do this recipe, but i'm sure there were many similarities. he did say he used only 1/4 c of cream for the whole pot. also, instead of adding spice with red pepper flakes, he used peperoncini, which to me gave the spice a really nice depth. it was delicious!

ooooh this looks so good and it's FREEZING outside right now here in NYC - so there's nothing better than a soothing bowl of tomato soup. i've been one of the lazy ones in the past and just opened the can, so this could be a great alternative. thanks for sharing the recipe!
