Please meet our wonderful Guest of the week, Sue sharing her Roasted Tomato Soup
Please, pop over, visit her, link up with her, and see what she has to share with you on her delightful blog. Read all about her @ Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary
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)

You are welcome.. and I know you will enjoy.. Thank you Miriam.. xxx Have a super weekend.. 🙂
Oh that’s awesome – some fresh homegrown tomatoes – Sure this soup will be extra special with your tomatoes from the garden
Sure will be. And fresh basil, yum!
That will be just the basil on the soup (cherry on the cake)
Haha, love it! 🍃

Looks delish, Sue! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I must try it soon. ٩(*ゝڡ◕๑)۶♥
Hope you do try it New Bloggy Cat.
I will. (⺣◡⺣)♡*
Awesome – enjoy
Thank you Pat. and thank you to Esme for her kind offer to post on her beautiful blog.. 😀
(๑╹ڡ╹)╭ ～ ♡
Thank you Pat.. And if you do, you will not be disappointed 🙂
Thanks, Sue! I will let you know after I’ve tried this recipe. But it’s not easy to get fresh basil here though. (*＾▽＾)／
It is not essential the soup is tasty enough without it Pat. xx
Ta, Sue! ( ๑ ❛ ڡ ❛ ๑ )♡♡
So great to see you here Sue! Thanks for this mouth watering recipe. I’ll be trying this one out! Hugs Sue and Esme! <3
Why oh why did you end up in Spam – fortunately, found you there. Sorry about that Debby. Yes what an awesome and moreish recipe
Lol Esme. You never know where you’ll find me! <3 But thanks for fishing me out. 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂
Thank you Debby, it is mouth watering.. <3 for sure
This looks so yummy! I would, however, prefer that someone else make it for me 🙂 ❤
I love to test new recipes, half of the enjoyment in making it yourself.
Thank you Tina, and to you Esme, for giving me the opportunity. Wishing you both a beautiful weekend to come.. <3
Very Yummy and easy! would the soup turn out good even using tomatoes from the groceries store, or does it require fresh picked tomatoes?
Here I think that Sue needs to answer you. My humble opinion, as long as it is very fresh it should work, but let’s wait for Sue’s response.
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
I will give it a try … a wonderful, tasty recipe by the great Sue… If it comes from her it has to be good! 😀 xx 🌟💫 Love & best wishes, Esmé & Sue!
Thank you Auileana. Enjoy it
Aww thank you Aquileana, that is a wonderful compliment.. Thank you, Big hugs right back. 🙂 And the thanks go to Esme for her kind offer of a guest post. 🙂 xx
I love tomato soup! This recipe sound very delicious!
Thanks Erika – For sure a most delectable and moreish soup
I can imagine that!!
Looks good Sue. I’ll have to tuck that recipe away for when winter arrives back on my doorstep 😀
Yes I often forget we are at opposite ends of Seasons Mark. 🙂 Salads are now on the menu I bet 🙂
Very salad menu, mind you our weather for that kind of eating has been rather bizarre. By now It is usually so hot you just want to fall in the water somewhere to cool off while eating your salads. It has been delightful mid to late 20 degrees with lovely breezes. And I am most certainly not complaining, I will take the good with the good, no arm twisting required 😀 <3
Haha.. Now Mid 20s are our HOT HOT Summers lol.. 🙂 xxx Enjoy your English summer.. haha..
We are in the midst of winter, so salads will not feature on our menu for the moment, this soup will just do the trick
Wow…so our 45 C degrees in mid summer might be a bit warm then. Mind you, I have experienced a 54 C once, and I think I was dying. And thankfully a rare occurrence. And occasionally I see an English gentleman on the beach that is redder than your tomato soup and my heart goes out to him and the pain that he is about to go through. They should have a list of do’s and don’ts in their rooms when they arrive, it isn’t a nice experience being sun burnt like that 😀
Not a sun lover – prefer the cooler weather so I am a happy camper
Mark our Summer if it reaches 26C is Hot… At the moment it is 3C outside.. 🙂 And yes we English are known to be a little Mad.. as “Only Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the Midday Sun” lol 🙂
Always good to have a stash of recipes to use when needed
Most certainly, and especially if they taste as good as they look 😀
Enjoy enjoy enjoy
That’s a perfect starter for a cold winter day.Thank you for sharing the recipe.
It most certainly is. Thank you Somali.. Sending warm thoughts your way too.. <3
Thank you, hope you will try it and enjoy this awesome soup
Yes, sure. 🙂
Cold for us in the 50s today so soup sounds good!
An Ideal day for a warming bowl of soup Jo.. And yes it is good.. Thank you my friend 🙂
Same here in Vancouver Canada, we had like 3C the entire day
We woke up to Snow this morning Esme, so just the day for a bowl.. LOL.. And many thanks again for the kind invite, I have really enjoyed being on Recipe Hunter.. <3 xxx
Enjoy your bowl and the snow – It’s pretty cold here but alas no snow yet
Living where you do it will not be long.
Let it snow, let is snow
Haha.. it is.. 🙂
I would love it to snow here, but alas that will not be
Looks so delicious… comfort food!
Thank you Holly it is, pure comfort food 🙂
🙂 yep, it sure is.
Comfort food at its best, moreish and delectable
I’m certain yummy😊
Thanks for visiting and hope you will try it
How lovely to see Sue over here, Esme. I have shared this post.
Thank you dear Robbie, it was so nice of Esme to invite me too 🙂 And many thanks for the reshare.. I really appreciate it.. <3 🙂

Your soul and your blog sound absolutely what I love most!
Many thanks Osyth, Happy to meet you here too 🙂
Mwah – the best ever compliment – Thank you very much
Reblogged this on Dreamwalker's Sanctuary and commented:
Quite some time ago, Esmé over at The Recipe Hunter https://cookandenjoyrecipes.wordpress.com/ 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
Sue – Thank you so very much for the share and your wonderful post. Thank you and should you ever wish to do another, just drop me an email and I will be very happy to do more. Sharing is Caring
Bless your heart dear Esme.. I have so enjoyed my time over here on your blog my friend.. Thank you, and for that kind offer in the future.. Many many thanks.. Love and Blessings Sue.. <3
Thanks Sue and you’re most welcome to come again and again. Looking forward to it. Have a great day
Thank you Esme. And you too 🙂 Enjoy your weekend xx
For sure am, having 2 our of 4 grand kids here for a sleepover while Daddy and Mommy have a Christmas function to attend.
Oh wonderful, I love to have our granddaughter on a sleep over too xx Enjoy!!
Yes great fun to have them and enjoy quality time with them.
Ooooh… I do love tomatoes (even though lately I’m not supposed to have them). A virtual bowl couldn’t hurt though! 😀 Wonderful Wednesday post, Sue. Hugs!
Thank you Teagan, it I am sure that ‘virtual. bowl will do you no harm what so ever Teagan. and thank you. 🙂
Teagan, no good for not being allowed to have tomatoes! Well hope you enjoy the virtual bowl
This soup sounds very delicious and easy to cook 😀
Irene, it is so very easy, and one I often make when we have a glut in tomatoes 🙂 Thank you
I will remember for the coming season, where I hope to be healthy enough to harvest by myself for that time. This year was different.
I so understand that Irene.. This year has been about nurturing yourself.. and allowing others to help you, rather than you being their for them, They are there for you.. And next year I am sure you will harvest an abundance of fresh veggies and energy in renewed good health… 🙂
Thank you Sue. I did have tomato plants in pots this year, but because of all what happened, they did not all survive. It was heatwaves here and they needed lots of water. Many of my flowers died too, but few survived, for what I’m grateful.
There is next year and Spring to look forward to Irene and New Arrivals, 🙂 which you are here to enjoy dear Irene.. And that dear friend is wonderful, that you are here to enjoy them all.. And I am so grateful too that you pulled through to enjoy all that is to come.. 🙂 <3
Thank you for your kind and continued support, Sue <3
Always welcome Irene.. <3 xxx
I second that
Take care of yourself, and trust 2018 will be a good one for you
Thank you Esme and I do 🙂
Good for you Irene, take care
Irene hope you feel better soon
Most definitely, an absolute gem of a recipe to have
I agree 🙂
