Roasted Tomato Soup RecipeDuring the holidays we have our traditional holiday dinners, and then want something different. This roasted tomato soup recipe from The Inn at English Meadows, which is located in Kennebunk, Maine, is the perfect soup for winter to warm you up, but it uses a variety of fresh tomatoes and basil that will give you the fresh taste of summer. The tomatoes, along with garlic and onions are roasted, and then added to chicken stock. Basil is then added, and an immersion blender is used. Cream is then added to bring it to the right consistency, and it is garnished with cherry tomatoes.
