Roasted Yellow Tomato Soup


As you might have seen here,  I’m the benefactor of a huge pile of tomatoes from a friend’s garden.  Lucky me!! I kind of agonized over how to eat them, wanting to make the most of my big win.  In the end I decided to roast a bunch of the yellow ones for this soup.  A soup I enjoyed both hot and cold, which was a big bonus (I love when leftovers can be reimagined!)  This soup is the simplest, but full of flavor from the tomatoes, it just tastes like Summer!  I also enjoyed quite a few of the juicy yellow tomatoes like this, but with a pile of avocado on top. Ahhh, tomato season, it’s almost as good as Christmas cookie season in my opinion!!  Happy Summer eating!  xx- Sarah

    OMG I’m cooking it as soon as I can!!! I’m thinking about pairing it with tortilla strips, probably the colour has me thinking of corn soup! Though, I wonder how it’d taste spinkled with cilantro too…

    You don’t even know how obsessed I am with soups lately! In efforts to eat better, you’d be surprised just how low calorie ( and filling! ) soups are. And if you throw some veggies in them, even better. :)

    The recipe above sounds amazing, Sarah. And easy to make too, thank you so much for sharing! :) I can’t wait to try it.
