This Roasted Tomato Soup is one of our favorite soups! Roasting tomatoes is easy to do and adds a delicious smoky flavor making this soup rich and flavorful!
You can use any type of sausage in this soup as it’s cooked through before adding. I find using a Kielbasa or garlic sausage is great because it’s already cooked and just needs a little frying for some flavor. I’ve even used turkey sausage for a lightened up dish! Use whatever variety of tomato you have, I’ve made it with regular tomatoes from the grocery store or even Roma or cherry tomatoes… all were great.
I usually try to keep fresh herbs on hand, they are an easy way to add a flavor boost, including in this roasted tomato soup! You’ll also want to be sure to add in the fresh herbs at the end of cooking however if you only have dried herbs, add them in while the soup is simmering to allow time for the flavors to blend.
Parmesan rinds are the ends of the parmesan cheese and can usually be bought at the deli counter, if you don’t see them, just ask. I buy about 5 rinds for $2.50 and store them in the freezer for months. Perfect to add flavor to soups, sauces and more.
