You know those days when you get home from picking up your kids from school? When you get home and you realise that you don’t have the energy to cook? Ever have those days? Those days what saves me is the roasted heirloom tomato soup. It’s a damn delicious roasted tomato soup.
This season they were able to soak up the sun and they taste sweet. Close to perfection I say.
I love the food that is in season now. All the beautiful colours and they taste different too. There is something beautiful about the food that has been able to grow and mature during the warm summer months. Like gorgeous tomatoes that are easily made into gorgeous and healthy roasted tomato soup.
I made this specific version with oven grilled tomatoes and added a little chilli to it to spice it up. Now in Sweden, we love our Friday taco nights. This tomato soup is a perfect addition to the Friday taco. Add a little guacamole and some tortilla crisps. And you have yourself a healthy, hearty roasted tomato soup. It’s where the Scandinavian meet the Scando-Mexican. Add a spoonful cream cheese on top of it and enjoy the roasted tomato soup.
