Roasted tomato and pumpkin soup--thats what was for supper tonight

Recommended Posts

I was digging around in my freezer and found a gallon bag of this soup I made in December when it was cold out.  I thought it is 100 degrees outside today but hey, this is already made.  So I put it in a pot of hot water--the zipper bag--and brought it to a gentle boil.  I took a cool shower, got a snuggly gown on and did my oil treatment for my pedicure and grabbed my laptop to catch up with my reading and all my friends.  Hi friends!


I also took a bag of 6 cinammon rolls out of the freezer that I had made. But when I rolled out the dough I spread a thick layer from  a jar of rum mincemeat then rolled them up as usual.  Dear gussy.  Are these good.  It tastes very similar to apple fritter but alot more of the delicious filling.


I took a french bread loaf and tore it into approx 1 inch cubes and tossed with it olive oil, parmasean cheese and parsely with some garlic powder and tossed them in a cast iron skillet and made croutons for the soup.  Devine.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced (or less if you like)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ½ - 1 tsp oregano
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1½ cups milk
  • splash white wine
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2½ cups pure pumpkin puree
  • sour cream for garnish
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the tomatoes into quarters, toss with olive oil and a bit of salt & pepper.
  4. Transfer the tomatoes to the baking sheet, spreading them evenly over the sheet and bake for 20 - 30 minutes.
  5. In the meant time, in a large soup pot, cook the onions and garlic in the 2 tbsp of butter, until soft.
  6. When the tomatoes are done roasting, stir in the tomatoes and spices and cook for about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in the pumpkin puree, broth, milk, wine and brown sugar.
  8. Simmer for about 10 - 15 minutes.
  9. Using a hand blender puree the soup, then simmer for a few more minutes.
  10. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and enjoy!

Poured a glass of chilled Apothic Red wine and throughly enjoyed the quick and easy meal.  Pretended it was cold outside with the air on high.


Such a comfort meal with no fuss!




Thankful to be among friends everyday!
