Tomato soup just tastes like my childhood. Mum usually made pumpkin and chicken soup from scratch but she always bought tomato soup from a tin. Which was OK by me. I thought it was pretty damn tasty.I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate tomato soup. But, one day, a couple of weeks ago I found myself with a severe craving for it.

I drove out to my fruit and veg guy and they had two kilos of heirloom tomatoes for four dollars. This was super exciting, even for me who doesn’t eat raw tomato.

After poking around, I came with what I thought would be a killer recipe for roasted tomato soup. I make it and just like that I was bought back to childhood. It was definitely a fancier childhood with the lovely roasted tomato flavours and the addition of fragrant thyme.

    I was never a fan of tomato soup as a kid however now I love it and this one in particular looks pretty good. Will be making this as I have 10 kilos of tomatoes sitting on my table from the garden this week. I did love potato and leek soup as a kid – blended not chunky. mmm – it was so thick you could stand a spoon up in it.

    This looks absolutely delicious – I love the idea of using fresh roasted tomatoes rather than canned. With some crusty bread and olive oil it would be a perfect winter dinner, so will definitely be trying it out! 🙂
