Nothing beats a savory soup on a chilly evening. This easy roasted tomato soup recipe hits the spot, especially when paired with a classic grilled cheese sandwich.



Start to finish: 55 minutes

Servings: five

3 pounds Roma tomatoes

½ small onion

¼ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 can evaporated milk

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons fresh basil

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 teaspoon sugar

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Halve tomatoes and place cut side up with the onion on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and add garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to coat well. Roast for 40 to 50 minutes, just until starting to brown.

Place in the blender and puree until smooth; leave the lid cracked slightly so the steam can escape. Add evaporated milk, cheese, basil, tomato paste and sugar. Puree until smooth once more, then taste and adjust seasoning to preference. Serve immediately and eat as is, or make a grilled cheese to dip in.
