With an over abundance of tomatoes from the garden I hunted for recipe's to help me use them. I came across a tomato soup recipe and made it my own to suit my families taste. The hint of orange and garlic in this soup is what makes it stand out from others. It is fresh, bright and a beautiful addition to your dinner table ! enjoy

How to Make Fresh Tomato Soup with a Touch of Orange

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line pans with foil, sprinkle with olive oil. Arrange thickly sliced tomatoes on them and bake 2 hours.
  • 2Place oil in a large pot, add the onions and saute about 10 min. Add the garlic and cook an additional 3 min.** Be careful not to burn or scorch garlic.**
  • 3Add the tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer partially covered.
  • 4After 15-20 soup will start to thicken, remove from heat. **REMOVE the tomato skins as best you can**
  • 5Cool soup and then run through a food processor. Strain the soup through a fine mesh colander and then let it chill in refrigerator.
  • 6* If you prefer the soup served hot, skip above chilling and heat slightly on stove.
  • 7Top with orange zest and croutons.
  • 8You can serve this in bowls, ramekins or shot glasses. I have a picture above with the shot glasses and it makes a really elegant and impressive appetizer.
