Creamy Tomato-Balsamic Soup

Cooking the vegetables at the high temperature of 500° caramelizes their natural sugars and deepens their flavor; the liquid poured over them ensures they won't burn. Prepare the soup up to two days ahead; reheat over medium heat before serving.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup less-sodium beef broth, divided
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, drained
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • Cracked black pepper (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 500°.

Combine 1/2 cup of broth, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Place onion, garlic, and tomatoes in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Pour broth mixture over tomato mixture. Bake at 500° for 50 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned.
