Grilled Tomato Soup Recipe with Basil

This tomato basil soup recipe uses vine-ripened tomatoes, which are left to ripen on the vine. This allows their sugars to develop and gives them a more intense flavor and a deep red color. Vine-ripened tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, vitamin E and lycopene which is an antioxidant.

In this tomato soup recipe, the tomatoes are grilled before being combined with delicious ingredients such as garlic, oregano and chili flakes and parmesan cheese. The soup is served over a whole grilled tomato. This tomato basil soup recipe is very tasty and results in a warming soup which is perfect served as an appetizer with warm crusty bread.

This Italian-inspired recipe is ideal if you have some vine-ripened tomatoes and you are wondering what to do with them. Although this type of tomato is good when served as part of a salad or used to make bruschetta, you can also cook with them as long as you make the tomato the star of the dish and ensure the flavor is sufficiently showcased.

If you are making a mixed vegetable soup you might as well use regular tomatoes since they are cheaper and will taste the same, but if you expressly wish to make a tomato soup and show off the quality of the tomatoes then choose this recipe and this type of tomato.
