From Garden to Table

Our tomatoes have been harvested and we had an abundance of ripe tomatoes from our garden. We decided to make some roast tomato soup out of our crop.

Roasting the tomatoes with some fresh basil and olive oil brings out the flavour of the tomatoes more and helps create a beautiful soup.


Check out the recipe that we followed below –


  • Garden tomatoes

  • Onions

  • Basil

  • Olive oil

  • Chicken Stock

  • Salt and pepper


  1. Spread tomatoes, onion, and basil onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over tomato mixture and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; add garlic ( if you like it) and continue roasting until the tomato mixture is tender, about 15 more minutes.

  4. Bring chicken broth, basil and parsley to a boil in a large stockpot; reduce heat and simmer.

  6. Put half the tomato mixture into a blender. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend until smooth, adding a small amount of the warm chicken broth if liquid is needed. Pour pureed tomato mixture into stockpot with chicken broth. Puree remaining half of tomato mixture and add to chicken stock mixture, mixing well. Simmer for 5 minutes.
