Tomato soup and grilled cheese

Roasted Tomato Soup

Grilled cheese and tomato soup was a favorite meal of mine when I was a child and that hasn’t changed as I’ve gotten older. What has changed a bit are my tastes and appreciation for fresh flavors.

Since tomato soup from Campbell’s can doesn’t cut it anymore, I’ve been experimenting and have finally found a new favorite, roasted tomato soup. Roasting the ingredients in the oven gives this soup a rich flavor and blending it gives it that smooth, creamy texture.
