I have been sick now for a few days with the flu. Pretty depressing. But it’s times like this when I remember soups. There’s nothing better to have than a warm soup with some cheesy bread when you have the flu.
OK, so maybe the cheesy bread doesn’t really help with the flu, but it goes great with this roasted garlic and tomato soup. And I love cheesy bread, dipped in this soup it’s to die for.
But enough about the bread, the star of this show here is the soup, after all. It’s probably one of the easiest soups you’ll ever make. You take a baking sheet, cup up some tomatoes in half, you take a garlic bulb and cut the top off, take an onion cut it in half, drizzle all these goodies with some olive oil and sprinkle with salt and place the tray in the oven and roast them for about half hour. During the half hour you can make your cheesy bread and try very hard not to eat it. After all that time you had to eat cheesy bread, hopefully you saved some for the soup, take the veggies and dump them in a blender, add the stock and herbs and blend. If you want at this time you could pour it in a pot and warm it up a bit more, but it’s totally up to you.
You want this soup. The flavors of the roasted garlic and tomatoes are fantastic. You want this soup even if you’re not sick like me.
Oh did I mention you need to grate some Parmesan cheese over the soup? No? What was I thinking, of course you need some Parm! Now go and make this, I know you want to.
