Roasted Tomato Fennel Soup

This is such a simple soup but oh so flavourful. The amazing flavour comes from oven roasted tomato and fennel with a little earthy thyme and fragrant smoked paprika and a touch of spice.

This would make an ideal starter course or a fantastic lunch. We freeze it in individual portions as a terrific alternative to having to use a can opener for a quick meal any time.

Of course our standard Homemade Tomato Soup is still quick, easy and delicious.

We still make it often but when we have a little more time, especially when entertaining, we like to serve this slightly more sophisticated version.

One of the reasons this is a great dinner party recipe, is that it is great to serve guests with different eating styles. We often have a mixed group of carnivores and vegetarians around our table.

This deeply flavourful soup always is a hit with whatever group of diners we happen to be serving. It makes serving different tastes a breeze.

Roasted Tomato Fennel Soup. This elegant but simple soup is a perfect first course at a dinner party or just a great weekday lunch addition. Great anytime that simple but delicious fits the bill.

Ingredients

  • 8 large ripe tomatoes diced
  • 1 large fennel bulb diced
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp crushed chillies (optional)
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 8 cups vegetable stock (salt free or low sodium are best)
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika

Instructions

Toss all ingredients except the vegetable stock, thyme and paprika, together in a shallow baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F.

Cook for about 60-70 minutes, stirring occasionally or until the fennel pieces are very soft. Most of the liquid should be cooked off and the tomato and fennel should reach a good chunky consistency.

Puree this mixture well in a blender or food processor and pour into a soup pot.

Add the vegetable stock, thyme and paprika.

Simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the soup reaches your desired consistency. Taste and do a final seasoning of salt and pepper if necessary. Serve.
