Fall means soup

I emerge briefly to let you know that this Roasted Tomato Soup is practically amazing, although I used beef broth instead of chicken, milk instead of cream, roasted onions, carrots, and celery along with the tomatoes, added more garlic, LOTS more herbs (including rosemary, which I highly recommend) and ate it with cilantro and chives on top.

One might argue that what I made is not the same recipe at all, but it was very tasty.

That sounds amazing. If only I had 8 pounds of tomatoes. :\

lol, no kidding. I did a quarter of a batch, which provided me enough for three meals.

How many tomatoes did that end up being? I don't have a scale at home, but I am thinking of whipping up a batch of this with the tomatoes I have.

I think it was about five small tomatoes (a little smaller than tennis balls?) I'd say, especially if you add extra vegis like I did, that having an exact amount isn't that important. Just add more or less milk and broth to taste. :)

Oh, thanks! I have four large tomatoes, so that might work. I know an exact amount isn't important but I wanted to be roughly equivalent. I had no clue how to estimate pounds to # of tomatoes! :) Mmm.. I am excited to try it.

What is vegis? :/

Oh how familiar this sounds.

We're going to try this tonight, with as many tomatoes as we have (a bowl full of romas). Should go nicely with toasted cheese sandwiches. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
