Firstly, thank you to Esmé for inviting me over to share a recipe with you, it’s taken me quite some time to put together my intention to take up Esmé’s kind offer.


I stumbled across Esmé’s blog when a blogging friend accepted Esmé’s invite and I then too was invited to contribute, so thank you again.  

I have been a blogger since 2007, transferring my whole blog over here to WordPress in 2010.

My main blog is one through which I share poetry and thoughts, that make us think more closely about our thoughts and actions and how they impact upon ourselves and the world around us.  Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary is my little sanctuary, where I share my thoughts and dreams.

 We all of us should keep walking the path of our dreams, and yet so often we put them off. A little like me keep putting off creating a post for Esme’s beautiful blog.

I thought long and hard about what I could post, and as we harvest our crops as we grow our own vegetables and fruit in our allotment plot. We often have an abundance of tomatoes, and they often start to ripen all at once. So I have a wonderful tried and tested recipe which I make often, and is just delicious with some garlic bread.

Roasted Tomato Soup

This recipe is easy. You just slice your tomatoes into quarters and put in the oven, drizzle with olive oil, and if you are short on time like I was one day, you can leave them to go cold and blend the next day. it’s so, so easy.  Why not give it a try and think of all the goodness in Fresh tomato soup. This year I made it with my yellow tomatoes as well, and it was just as tasty.


1 Kg of Tomatoes,
4 garlic cloves whole in skins  (I used 6, I like garlic)
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Litre of Veggie Stock (or if you prefer Chicken Stock) I used a little less stock than this. I used around 250 ml, which gives a thicker soup.
1 or 2 tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar to taste.
A handful of fresh basil leaves.
Seasoning to taste:- Salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5.
Place the unpeeled garlic and tomato quarters cut side up on a baking tray.
Drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast about 40 mins or so,  in preheated oven or until the tomatoes are soft
Snip the ends off the garlic cloves, (a tip: snip the root end off the garlic before roasting and it squeezes out easier once cooked) and squeeze the insides into the bowl of a food processor or blender along with the roasted tomatoes and juice from the baking tray. Add stock, basil, and vinegar; blend until smooth.
Season to taste.  Simple!


Then sieve to remove the seeds (I didn’t add the chopped basil until the end when I heated the soup, and ready to eat)


Enjoy!  Sue.

  1. Sue, this looks delicious! I love soups during the cold season and often try to make one once a week – this will be perfect! I’m printing this out and can’t wait to make it. Many thanks for sharing. xx

    • Yes you can use tomatoes from the grocery store no problem, but try to use those which you have found to be the tastiest.. So often many can be a little watery and not so tasty.. The only tip I would give you is to add the Balsamic vinegar a little at a time.. and keep tasting, Dont put the whole lot in at once as it may not suit your own taste buds.. 🙂 Enjoy and thank you for commenting.. 🙂 Sue

  2. Reblogged this on Dreamwalker's Sanctuary and commented:
    Quite some time ago, Esmé over at The Recipe Hunter asked me if I would like to contribute with a guest recipe.

    Even though Esmé had told me when it was to be published, I had quite forgotten it would be today .

    So if you are looking for that winter warming soup, then do try this recipe it is delicious.
    I would ask that when you do add that Balsamic vinegar, do so to taste, as some may find it a little strong, which is why I put on the recipe ( to taste ).

    I am now home from my short holiday in Scotland, so I am gradually getting back into blog-land again..

    Wishing you all a very Happy Wednesday..
    Sue 🙂 <3
