This Roasted Carrot and Tomato Soup recipe is mainly staple ingredients. Chances are you can have a pot of this EASY and delicious soup on the stove tonight! Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, carrots and tomatoes are always in season. Enjoy a bowl of this perfect comfort food anytime.
In California, we are always ready for some cooler temperatures, and right now we are having some wonderfully crisp nights! Nothing soothes the soul (and the belly) better than a nice bowl of soup in front of you!
I love a meatless soup, no matter what the season. If it’s easy, even better! This Roasted Carrot and Tomato Soup with Basil recipe starts with the simplest ingredients and it just gets better from there. During the roasting, the carrots almost take on a caramel-like look. It doesn’t add sweetness, though like you might think. It enhances the flavor, and boy is it a delicious touch! Way better than boiling!
You probably have all of the ingredients already, and can start right now! If you’re lucky enough to have a farmers market or actual farm stand in your neck of the woods, even better! We all want the freshest of the fresh, right? For this recipe, I head towards our local favorite, Manassero Farms. They plant it there, they grow it there, you buy it there! Doesn’t get any fresher than that!
If you’ve got it already, grab that bag of carrots that you forgot was in the crisper drawer!
The vegetables, once roasted, sum up the heart and soul of this bowl of goodness. This flavorful meatless soup is light and perfect for all seasons and, if you’re like me, you won’t want to wait! Don’t forget to dunk a bit of French Bread (Olive Bread 2-2-2)!
