Roasted Tomato Soup Recipe

Inspired by my Mama, this roasted tomato soup recipe is the one I turn to anytime my child feels under the weather or has a sore throat.

This morning my daughter woke up complaining that her throat hurt. In our home, it’s understood that a sore throat generally calls for some homemade peppered chicken soup or my Mom’s clear tomato soup.

With a club tryout later this afternoon at school, she asked if I could take some soup for her lunch at school. 

Roasted Tomato Soup

Realizing I didn’t have any chicken in the freezer, I made her a flask filled with delicious tomato soup.

Now my Mom’s soup isn’t very filling, so I decided to add some onions and carrots in the same to ensure she had a filling meal, enough to sustain her for the rest of the day.

This is such an easy homemade soup recipe to whip up and roasting those tomatoes add so much flavor to the mix!
