  • Yield: Serves: 4
  • Cook time:2 Hours
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$3.67

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds plum tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • Torn fresh basil leaves, optional

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer, cut side up, on a large baking sheet. Scatter onions, garlic and thyme around tomatoes. Sprinkle with sugar, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil. Roast until vegetables are soft and slightly caramelized, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. Discard thyme sprigs.

2. Warm broth in a large pan over medium heat. Add tomato mixture, scraping up browned bits from sheet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

3. Remove soup from heat; let cool slightly. Working in batches, puree soup in a blender. Strain soup through a sieve into clean pan, pressing on solids to extract liquid. Discard all solids.

4. Stir in half-and-half and reheat soup to a simmer, stirring often (do not boil). Season with salt and pepper, ladle into bowls and sprinkle with basil, if desired.
