Sheet Pan Tomato Soup

I love roasted tomato soup. Truly nothing better! This soup is adapted from my Tomato Hatch Chile Soup because I love the ease of putting everything on a baking sheet (like my Acorn Squash Soup) and roasting it. The tomatoes are softened, the garlic is caramelized and the onion is cooked. Then everything is blended in a blender and served with tomato soup–easy!

I say take advantage of all the tomatoes this season. Make everything from a Caprese Salad, Cherry Tomato Pasta, a Tomato Sandwich to Authentic Pico de Gallo.
