Grilled Tomato Soup from Scratch with Parsley

This is a wonderful recipe for grilled tomato soup and you can serve it either hot or chilled. The grill gives plenty of flavor to the tomatoes, much more so in fact than if you were to simply blanch them in hot water. You need to clean your grill before making this tomato soup from scratch recipe because a clean grill keeps the tomato flavor intact and a dirty grill will either make the tomatoes stick to it or give them the flavor of whatever you cooked on there before!

To serve this soup chilled, you will need it to be in the refrigerator for a couple of hours at least and remember the flavors blend over time so leave it overnight if possible. You can bring it to a light boil in a saucepan if you prefer it hot. If you do that, remember that you will need to watch and stir it constantly until it is hot enough. As soon as it begins to boil it is ready. Hot tomato soup is a winter warmer and chilled tomato soup is perfect for warm spring or summer days, especially if you fancy eating al fresco or if you are having a barbecue.

Tomato soup has to be one of the most popular types of soup and there are all kinds of ways to make it. Traditional Italian tomato soup is flavored with garlic, basil, and olive oil and the following recipe definitely has an Italian influence. Unless you are making this grilled tomato soup recipe for strict vegetarians, the crumbled crispy bacon makes a marvelous garnish and is well worth adding. The parsley adds a splash of color to the soup, as well as an aromatic flavor, which suits the tomato flavor perfectly.
