Roasted Tomato Soup

A pan of fresh cut tomatoes and garlic ready for roasting.


A tomato soup recipe to cure all ills. Roasting is the secret.

When cabin fever hits, I am not a pretty sight. My hair has a static-inspired halo decidedly unholy. I do not remain calm. I pace and fidget.

I am not the serene goddess you may think I am.

I am itchy and creaky and sick to death of pilled winter sweaters. Not to mention, the Arctic Vortex. Capricious El Nino.

My method?

Make soup.

See if this doesn't help quench your cabin own fever.

Just a little.

Roasted Tomato Soup Recipe

This soup is lovely as is. I mean it. It's a gorgeous burst of crushed tomato flavor. But if you simply have to kick it up, be my guest. Add a dab of basil pesto on a toasted wedge of crusty gluten-free bread. Or serve with a garnish of finely chopped red onion.

What you'll need to do first: Roast some fresh tomatoes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

3 pounds plum tomatoes
Olive oil
Garlic cloves
Italian herbs
Balsamic vinegar

Grab three pounds of plum tomatoes (or vine ripe tomatoes) and wash them gently, thinking of spring (I also added some yellow tomatoes).

Cut the love fruits (aka tomatoes) in half and toss them into a roasting pan with splashes of extra virgin olive oil, some dried Italian herbs and several peeled cloves of garlic. Add a generous drizzle of balsamic vinegar (to keep this yeast-free use lemon juice or omit).

Slide the pan into the oven and gather the next ingredients. The tomatoes should be ready in roughly 45 minutes.

Your kitchen will smell like an Italian vacation.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red onion, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes- if you like heat- or omit
1 28-ounce can organic Muir Glen Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon organic raw agave- or to taste
3 cups light broth
1 bay leaf
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
3 lbs. oven-roasted plum tomatoes (see above)

Garnish:

Chopped fresh parsley, basil or mint

Instructions:

In a heavy soup pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir for five minutes. Add the herbs and chili flakes, and stir another minute or two, until the onion is softened. Add the canned tomatoes, raw sugar and broth. Toss in the bay leaf and season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste.

Add the oven-roasted tomatoes and garlic, breaking the pices apart a bit with a wooden spoon.

Cover and bring to a simmer; lower the heat and continue to simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Discard the bay leaf.

Puree the soup with an immersion blender, (or in small batches in a food processor or blender, tightly covered). Return to the pot. Taste for seasoning adjustments. Heat through.

If you like a creamy soup, stir in a half cup of your favorite plain non-dairy milk or cream.


If the soup is too thick, add enough hot broth to thin it to the consistency you prefer.

Keep warm until serving.

Sprinkle with chopped herbs.

Serves 4.

Gluten-Free Goddess Raspberry Jam Bars

Sweet and simple raspberry jam bars. Let's be honest. I am here today to tempt you. To coax you. To seduce you with a gluten-free dessert worthy of every single luscious calorie. In full transparency, I am admitting up front these are not fat-free. Or sugar-free. These aren't diet food. They're not proper for breakfast (unless you serve them with Champagne). And you won't be able to sigh ever-so-wistfully at parties and mention, off hand, how hard it is to eat gluten-free at family gatherings and parties. Because, Darling Reader, you'll score zero sympathy points once people sink their teeth into the luscious raspberry jam filling nestled between buttery toasted coconut-almond crunch topping and tender hazelnut cookie crust. Nope. In fact, these decadent raspberry coconut-almond bars should come with a warning:   Be careful who you share these with. Because they are sure to fall madly in love with you. Seriously.

Gluten-Free Baking Tips + Substitutions

Need wheat-free gluten-free baking tips? Help is Here. Here's what works- and what doesn't- in quirky Gluten-Free Baking and Substitution Land. From Karina, Gluten-Free Goddess®. Baking Substitutions for Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free and More Notes on GF Flours: Gluten-free non-wheat flours generally fall into three basic weights- light starch, all-purpose medium, or heavier whole grain. A blend of medium and heavy flours with some starch mixed in to lighten, tenderize, and help bind the batter or dough works best, and tastes best (too much starch can result in a gummy texture). Light, starchy GF flours include sweet rice flour, white rice flour, and the ubiquitous gluten-free starches- tapioca starch, cornstarch, potato starch (NOT potato flour, which is whole different animal) and arrowroot starch. Medium flours are akin to 'all purpose flour'- these include sorghum flour, certified gluten-free oat flour, and superfine brown rice flour. If you cannot find sorg

Gluten-Free Goddess Bread Recipe - dairy-free and rice-free, too

One Delicious Loaf... Man shall not live by bread alone, so the famous saying goes. In other words, we need ideas to feed us, too. We need awareness. Conscious action. An expression and celebration of the spirit. And yet (here's the sticky part, folks) almost every spiritual tradition includes the bread we shall not solely live by, whether it be a hand-torn loaf, a paper thin wafer, a piece of matzoh, a curve of naan, or a sprinkle of cornmeal. Breaking bread and sharing grain is a cherished and beloved symbol for community, celebration and tribal nourishment. From Holy Communion to the Super Bowl gatherings around an elevating principle or a family milestone (from birth to marriage to funerals) include the simple but connecting gesture of sharing food. Because cooking makes us human. And eating illustrates our kinship with the entire animal kingdom. Humans are animals, after all, interlinked and cousined by astonishingly similar DNA and subatomic particles from the

Gluten-Free Goddess Brownies- The Best

Why bake a gluten-free brownie from scratch and not a mix? While baking mixes are perfectly acceptable in a pinch, and no doubt a boon to busy cooks on a gluten-free diet (well, honestly, who isn't busy, preoccupied, overwhelmed, and anxious these days, I ask you?), your taste buds will tell you why. In a heart beat, Darling. A dark chocolate brownie made from scratch is deeply delicious and decadent. Impressive, even. Company worthy. Dare I say, date night worthy. I'm not kidding. This brownie recipe is swoon inducing. (You know what they say about chocolate.)  But here's the best part. Throwing this recipe together takes only a few minutes longer than opening up a box of mix. In fact, you can whip up these luscious gooey babies in a mere ten minutes. In less time than it takes you to scan your daily dose of cute animals IG feed.  Seriously.  So what is more rewarding? Watching baby donkeys frolic on Instagram or stirring together this rich, tender, dark chocolat

Quinoa Salad with Roasted Beets, Chick Peas and Orange

Fresh, bright quinoa salad with oranges and roasted beets. Roasted Beets + Quinoa are a super yum match. Trust me. February second. We survived January, Darling. Happy Groundhog Day to you. Happy Imbolc. The dwindling of winter is at last within reach- no matter what Punxatawny Phil predicts. Six weeks is doable. After all, there is chocolate. Irish Soda Bread . And soul warming soup . And our hope-fueled New Year betterments are still on track (right?). If not, the year is young. Tomorrow is a fresh start. To celebrate, let's throw a party. My contribution? A gluten-free vegan salad that is perfect for parties. Because throwing a party is a tad more complicated than it used to be. There are vegans to accommodate. And newly gluten-free friends and neighbors to feed. And let's face it. Everyone is a wee bit bored by those layered taco bean dips and pork sliders. Gooey meat and cheese is so predictable. Pizza dips are so frat house. Why not go fresh and bre

Gluten-Free Goddess Lemon Yogurt Cake

Luscious Lemon Cake So  I've been jonesing for a cake laced with citrus- not too sweet and not too light. A cake with character and heft.  Something akin to a lovely simple cake I remember liking as a child, a store bought bakery cake called Louisiana Ring made by Freihofer's. The cake featured a hint of orange. The day I decided to bake, I did not have oranges in the pantry- but I did have some lemons, organic Greek yogurt, and plenty of blanched almond flour.  And this simple home baked lemon cake was born.  In time for Spring.
