5 Bowl-Licking Soup Recipes To Try

I’ve been talking up soup for the last few weeks and I just haven’t got around to making any of my own. I’ve settled a few times for a crappy bowl of whatever the special was from local restaurants, but I finally got some time to search Pinterest for some awesome recipes to try this season. I ended up narrowing it down to my “Top 5 Bowl-Licking Soup Recipes” because I was getting a little carried away and not to mention hungry! I’ve also added some items below to get your kitchen bowl-licking ready this season.

If you have any recipes you’d like to share with me don’t hesitate to comment below!

Roasted Tomato, Garlic, & Onion Coconut Soup

TGCsoup

Yield: 6 cups

INGREDIENTS:

Roasting Vegetables:

  • 5 pounds of roma tomatoes, washed & sliced in half
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled & sliced
  • 2-3 large garlic bulbs, prepared for roasting
  • extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt, & pepper, for vegetables

Soup:

  • 3 cups roasted tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp roasted garlic flesh
  • all of the roasted sweet onion
  • 1 can light coconut milk (reserve 2-3 tbsp for garnish)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth (low-sodium may be used)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp garam masala (add slowly, to taste)
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste (you may have to reduce amt. if you used full-sodium broth)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • for garnish: garlic croutons, coconut milk, pesto, herbs, garam masala, pepper, etc.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line 2 baking sheets with tin foil (note that parchment paper will burn). Grab a small casserole dish to place the garlic in. Lightly drizzle on EVOO onto onions and season onions and tomatoes with S & P. Roast for about 30 minutes and then check on the vegetables. You might have to remove the onions early as they cook the quickest. When the onions are golden and lightly blackened on the edge, you can remove them. Continue roasting the garlic for about 60 minutes or so (check it after 4 5mins), and the tomatoes for about 1 hour and 20 mins. Your oven times will vary though, so keep an eye on them!

  2. Add 3 cups roasted tomatoes, 2 tbsp roasted garlic flesh, and all the onion into a large pot. Add coconut milk, tomato paste, and broth and stir well.
  3. Stir in the seasonings and spices to taste. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Carefully transfer into a blender, processor, or use an immersion blender. Pulse for just a few seconds until chunky. You can also make it smooth, but I liked the texture. Serve immediately and garnish with reserved coconut milk, a sprinkle of garam masala, croutons/bread, and fresh black pepper.
