Roasted tomato soup

Image

We made this yummie tomato soup after returning home from a bike trip through the city on a sunny but crisp autumn day. After having a big lunch in the afternoon hours, all we needed was something warming but light on the belly. The roasted flavor of the oven-baked tomatoes combined with the fried bread has a very special and intense taste which is worth the tomato baking time of 1 h!

…and if the fried bread is too oily for you, you can easily replace it with carrot pieces which you simply bake with the tomatoes in the oven.

Try to get fresh herbs!!

Make more than you need and keep in the freezer for busy times

Ingredients

4 Servings

  • 1 kg ripe tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 750 ml vegetable stock (you can easily make it yourselve as you got 1 h time : boil 1 liter of water with carrots, spring onions, celery and herbs) 
  • 1 Tbs fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbs sweet paprika powder 
  • 1 or 2 slices of rye bread
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
  • Oliveoil
  • Salt and black pepper 

Preparation

1. Heat oven 170 degrees.

2. Cut the tomatoes in 3mm wide slices and place them on one or two oven trays. Season with the thyme, salt, pepper and olive oil. Bake for 1 h. After half the baking time add the whole garlic cloves with peel.

3. Fill the baked tomatoes in a pot and add the peeled garlic. Also add the paprika powder and the stock. Heat until it cooks.

4. Add more salt if needed and/or add more stock if needed and shortly puree with a magic stick.

5. Cut the bread in pieces and fry in a lot of olive oil until the pieces get brown. Serve with the chopped basil as the topping for the soup.

About Sarita Chia

Hello and Namaskaram from South India my current home. My name is Sarita and I am originally from Germany. After spending my last 7 years in the big cities Berlin and London I decided to settle for a life in a more peaceful, green and soothing atmosphere. Here I share my passion for raw and vegan food. It's been quite a journey for me after turning vegan in May 2011 and I got to explore so incredibly much in these past years and got quite experienced in food prep, cooking vegan meals and moreover learning to listening to my body and which foods suit me the best. I just adore sweet fruit and love to indulge in raw desserts, cakes, ice creams, cookies, smoothie bowls, you name it. Just can't get over it what magic can be done with simple ingredients being likewise a treat for your taste buds and for your system. Yoga and meditation has become another big part of my life over the years. I feel the benefits from just that little fragment of time which I invest daily. I feel that that’s for me the most significant experience of my life which I want to deepen even more. Apart from that I'm a big nature fan and love love love trees :) and yes I also hug them if I feel like it. I'm a great hippie just like my parents, all up for love and peace. I believe that everyone creates their own world and is responsible for everything happening in their lives, even the bad stuff. I try to keep a happy and positive outlook on things as I find that perception creates reality. I am also a great dreamer: I believe that everyone on this planet will turn vegan someday and that it's possible for humankind to evolve into conscious and loving beings which manage to live without wars, money, hatred and crime. The revolution has already started as everyone starts from their own personal (r)evolution towards truth, compassion, empathy, love, peace and all the good stuff. We are constantly learning how to be better humans that’s what I believe. And dayum I ride my rainbow colored unicorn in my sunshine filled fairy world just because I can. I believe in magic. True every day magic. Good happy magic moments. It happens every day you just have to open your eyes ;) Travelling is my heart and I count it as a great part of education. The most important one actually! I think that by travelling you get to learn the real shit! The real life lessons! Be free and wild. Be a child of wind and sun. With this blog I hope to inspire others to make healthier & happier choices and I hope to show how easy it is to switch and keep up a healthy plantbased diet all around the world.
