No More Canned Soup For You! Try This Roasted Tomato Basil Soup With Essential Oils!


I loved Roasted Tomato Basil Soup. However, I do buy it at the store pretty much because I was just being lazy. For me, nothing is better than Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, some noodles and grilled cheese. My husband prefers just the Roasted Tomato Basil Soup without noodles or grilled cheese. No matter which way you want to serve it, it's all good!

This easy-to-make, guilt-free family favorite has no cream, sugar, or any unnecessary additives and will still give you that scrumptious, comfort food sensation needed to survive the winter season.

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Prep. Time: 15 min.

Cook Time: 1 hr. 30 min.

Total Time: 1 hr. 45 min.

Yield: 6 servings

  • 3 pounds ripe tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1  28-oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 2 drops Basil essential oil
  • 1 drop Black Pepper essential oil
  • 1 drop Thyme essential oil
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the halved tomatoes in a medium bowl then pour 1/4 cup olive oil and salt over them and stir to combine. Spread the tomatoes in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast in the oven for 45 minutes. After roasting, remove the tomatoes from the oven and set aside.

Place the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onions and sauté until they start to brown, about eight minutes. Add garlic and sauté for one additional minute. Add the roasted tomatoes (including any liquid from the baking sheet), red pepper flakes, canned tomatoes with their juice, fresh basil leaves, and chicken or vegetable broth. Bring all the ingredients to a boil and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes. Stir the essential oils into the soup and let cool slightly. Puree in batches in a blender until smooth or use an immersion blender in the pot.

Adjust your seasonings to taste, serve warm, and enjoy!
