It is soup weather all day long here right now and I couldn’t resist making a big batch of my Roasted Tomato Soup
.
Growing up in a very budget-conscious family, adding water to the canned tomato soup concentrate was all I knew
.
The first time my now-husband made a pot of tinned soup and poured milk into the can, I was like “Whoa! Calm down, we’re not the Rockerfellers!”
.
Fast forward to today and this soup is richer and creamier than anything that I could have ever imagined
.
I love to use Mutti Organic Peeled Tomatoes in this soup because they add a wonderful depth of flavour to the final dish as a nod to my swanky husband but keep it budget friendly to soothe my soul
.
Make a batch and have it simmering on the stove for the next time you come in from the cold
 .
Enjoy!
