Trying vegan recipes is pretty much changing my life and my stomach. I have to say my most favorite discovery to date is the magic of roasting tomatoes. It brings out this amazing flavor you would not believe! And for that reason alone, trying vegan or not you absolutely have to make this recipe from Ceara’s Kitchen. It truly is “the Best Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup” – with some of my own modifications of course 😉
To begin with it calls for hot sauce. #1 why? and #2 no. Totally dropped that ingredient. I also ended up not doing the bay leaves because they were hidden in my spice drawer – but I’m definitely trying them next time. The overall taste of the final soup was a bit sour so I added too much brown sugar, which in turn led me to add more salt and garlic salt because I couldn’t quite smell the garlic enough either.
Thing’s I’d do differently? Try the bay leaves, still add salt to taste, maybe one or two more garlic cloves and tripling the maple syrup over adding brown sugar.
This meal was sorely lacking in bread, which was totally my fault because I killed my yeast, but alas there’s always next time — and I can promise there will be a next time because this soup was delicious!!
