Roast Tomato Soup – Sunshine in a Bowl

Roast Tomato Soup is kind of like a bowl of happiness!

You get these rich, hearty flavours from roasting the veggies, topped with sharp cheddar cheese and fresh basil.  You might even call it sunshine in a bowl…

I’d happily skip the meat and have a bowl of this!

Once you’ve used roasted tomatoes as a base for sauce or soup, you’ll never go back.
The roasting brings out all these intense, rich flavours and just adds heaps of depth.


It might seem like a bit of a lengthy process, but it’s not really – plus, it’s totally worth the effort.

I never even make a simple mince sauce anymore without my roast tomato sauce

Roast Tomato Soup

A rich, hearty roast tomato soup with sharp cheddar and fresh basil - it's like sunshine in a bowl!

Author Heidi Visser


  • 800 g ripe tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. melted neutral coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. course salt
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup fresh cream
  • grated cheddar cheese to serve
  • shredded fresh sweet basil to serve
  • chilli relish to serve - optional


  1. Roughly chop the veggies and place them in a large roasting tray.

  2. Drizzle with coconut oil and sprinkle with salt.

  3. Roast in the oven for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Once roasted and slightly charred, allow to cool, then blitz with a stick blender until smooth.

  5. Transfer to a large pot and reheat.

  6. Add the chicken stock and cream and heat through.

  7. Serve with grated cheddar cheese and shredded sweet basil.

  8. If you have a favourite chilli relish or sauce - that has no sugar or nasties - add a few drops and serve.

You can really tinker with the amount of veggies you use, based on what you have available.

Sometimes I use less zucchini and more peppers, sometimes I add a carrot. The base of this soup is pretty much the same as my roast tomato sauce, which I use as a sauce and also when I make a bolognese mince mix…

I like to make large batches that I can use later on in the week for something else. Oh, I also use it on low carb pizza bases…

It really has endless uses!

It’s definitely a go-to staple recipe.
