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.

Sunbutter Cookies

Here's an easy gluten-free cookie recipe made with sunflower butter- a post-modern peanut-free take on those retro peanut butter cookies your Aunt Lizzie used to make. You know, with those jars of Skippy peanut butter (or was it Jif?). Instead of using traditional peanut butter in this recipe, I used sunflower butter, which has a golden nutty flavor not unlike peanut butter, but slightly different. Kinda like peanut butter's wacky, geeky brother. You know, slightly nutty. Fun. Like a bright new bike. And they taste so good you just might want some more. Now, please. I adapted this recipe from a peanut butter cookie recipe (submitted by Erin Smith) to Beyond Rice Cakes , an easy, fun cookbook (especially for teens and students) by Vanessa Maltin, director of outreach and programming at the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness .

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Scones

Sconelicious. You heard me right. Because I know what you're craving.  I'm craving it, too. Something indulgent.  But not overly indulgent.  Sweet.  But not too sweet.  Something warm and tender, and laced with the autumnal spices you've been shaking and dashing and pinching with abandon.  Something using up that leftover half cup of pumpkin sitting in the fridge. Are you with me?  Are ya feelin' me?  Then let's get sconed. Karina xox

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Apple Cake

As soon as I buy apples and start daydreaming about my favorite fall confections- imagining clear, cool evenings on Cape Cod and Miles Davis' haunting rendition of Autumn Leaves . September turns golden and sultry with a hint of rain, reeling me back into the closet to peel off my boyfriend jeans and fresh new flannel shirt. Faster than Gordon Ramsay can mock sashimi, Yours Truly is grabbing faded summer shorts and my favorite Patriots t-shirt to bake barefoot. See what I do for you? So go ahead, babycakes. Enjoy this new apple cake recipe. Share a slice or two amongst yourselves. Don't worry about me here in my hot little Hollywood apartment. Really. Go. Have some cake. You'll love it. Apple kisses, Karina xox

Gluten-Free Applesauce Cake with Cinnamon Crumb Topping

Apple Cake to the Rescue. Again. I decided to bake a cake. Because trying to wrestle gluten-free pie dough for an apple pie just seemed too fussy. Too complicated. Though in all honesty, that isn't the whole, unvarnished truth. The whole, unvarnished truth is, Yours Truly is more of a cake person than a pie person. It's true- pies have their charm. I've been known to inhale a slice or two of apple pie in my day. But here's the thing. And I'm going to be blunt. Gluten-free pastry crust is simply not as flaky and tender and melt-in-your-mouth wonderful as wheat pastry crust. There. I said it. Fighting words, to some. And if you are among those true believers feel free to disagree. And go eat your gluten-free pie. I bless you with a thousand sprinkles of pie fairy dust. With love. And kisses. And pink ponies. Respectfully. Gluten, you see, is more than a pesky protein with a bad rep. Gluten is what makes pastry dough soft, flaky and tender. Gluten is what

Pumpkin Polenta Recipe with Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa

Vegetarian pumpkin polenta with salsa fresca. The first gifts of Fall have arrived. Time to dig out the Crock Pot and your favorite flannel shirt. If you can find it, that is. It's got to be around here somewhere, right? You used it wore it to death last year. Or was that the year before? The harvest moon is playing tricks with your memory again. The crows outside in the oak trees caw like the crows in tomorrow's dream. Days turn into weeks and lunch turns into next month's breakfast. Hours spill through worm holes of time like so many episodes of Lost . And the Buddha imagines the universe. And gets it close to right . We're talking atoms, people. Particles of teeny tiny specks of even tinier teenier fragments of a single point of something so small the naked eye perceives it as invisible. Yet the Buddha perceived this. In 528 BC. I ponder this as I walk in a stream of brittle bronze oak leaves. The succession of days that adds up to a life is only a

Best Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

We found canned organic pumpkin on the store shelves this week. So be prepared for pumpkin recipes. I, for one, Darling, can't get enough. Pumpkin is my favorite fall ingredient. Maybe because it cozies up to gluten-free flours so well. It adds moisture and depth to g-free baked goods. It flirts with cinnamon and ginger like the sexiest, inscrutable movie star. You know what I'm talking about. It's not overt. Or blatant. It's not over the top. It is subtle. Secure. Pumpkin doesn't demand to be admired. Because it doesn't have to prove itself. It's not a bully flavor that crushes gentler flavors in its wake. It doesn't bark and claw to be Top Dog 24/7. It doesn't have a deep seated need to own the room, to dominate, to control the ingredients it shares a bowl with. Pumpkin goes with the flow. It likes vanilla. And it likes chocolate. You could say, it's bi-flavorful. Which happens to be a quality I admire. Even embody and

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
