Roasted Tomato Coconut Soup (from Oh She Glows)October 8, 2011
I’m here today with a quick recipe referral for a delicious soup I made last weekend courtesy of Oh She Glows: Creamy Roasted Tomato, Garlic, & Onion Coconut Soup. This mouthful of a recipe is also a recipe you’ll really want mouthfuls of: a superb fall soup with a deep complexity of flavor, which is nonetheless a total snap to make. You begin by simply roasting some tomatoes, garlic, and onions in your oven, and then you just mix those all together with some coconut milk, vegetable broth, and spices, and after a quick simmering, blend everything together into a creamy mélange. The flavor of this soup comes mainly from the roasting, but as everyone knows, roasted tomatoes are fantastic, and in addition, now is the perfect time for tomatoes, as they are still filling stands at your local farmers’ market.
The only thing more I’ll say about this recipe was it was a little on the spicy side, at least as I made it. I think this could easily be fixed by cutting back a 1/2 tsp of the garam masala and being a little less generous with the black pepper; also, I should’ve been more careful about not letting my roasted tomatoes burn as much as they did. Still, this is really only a very minor gripe; the soup was still totally fantastic, and I will gladly make it again in the future, as should you! Especially seeing as tomato season is not gonna last that much longer. Enjoy!
Until we eat again,
