Nothing goes with a grilled cheese like a good roasted tomato soup. It’s a healthy vegan (Has honey which isn’t technically vegan, but its up for debate and you can swap for sugar, but I don’t prefer sugar to honey) soup but its packed with flavor. Now that you can make a great grilled cheese and tomato soup, relive your childhood or make the one your kids are living more fun and delicious.

Roasted Tomato Soup

3-4 lbs Roma Tomatoes (about 10 tomatoes, or 2 cans of whole peeled tomatoes, just don’t roast them)
1 Onion, roughly chopped
1-2 Carrots, roughly chopped
2 Celery Stalks, roughly chopped
1 Fennel Bulb, roughly chopped
1 Bunch Fresh Thyme
1 Head of Garlic
2 Bay Leaves
1 Box of Vegetable Stock (4 Cups)
2 cups of V8 Juice
1-2 Tablespoons of Honey (Technically this is not vegan, but there is a debate about it, feel free to use sugar)
1 Bottle of Paprika
1 Bunch Fresh Basil
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Optional Additions:
Cream for garnish (It is a vegan soup without the cream)
Fennel Fronds for Garnish








  1. I really did not enjoy the outcome: you use way too much paprika and that overpowers everything. Also, why not use a little sugar and balsamic vinegar while roasting the tomatoes? the v8 is completely unnecessary. not a lot of flavor in the end, to be honest. using a red onion instead of a spanish onion would also be better. not sure thyme belongs in this recipe.

  2. Option: remove the tomato skins after roasting.
    I make this recipe frequently, but my take is simpler. It's roasted tomatoes, roasted onions, and roasted medley of mushrooms (added in separate after blending). I also mount the soup with butter during the blend. Plenty of paprika like yours. Second option: reserve some of the roasted onions to add in after blending, for texture.

  3. A lot of people are fennel phobic…But, fennel is not only super healthy, it can add decadent floral notes to any dish in the right proportions. You certainly can't just add mindless amounts of fennel to a dish just like you can't just add handfuls of the most expensive cologne to a beautiful man and expect him to remain beautiful. But, again, in the right proportion, you can really elevate whatever you are showcasing. If all else fails, drink a bottle of Sambuca with a friend before you start cooking and it'll all be all right.
