Zupa's Roasted Tomato Soup

This is my 2nd year of growing a garden.  I am still surprised that I enjoy sitting in the sun and caring for plants.  Perhaps it's because they are easier to care for than children!  The first year I planted 9 tomato plants.  Holy tomatoes batman!  Nine plants grows a lot of fruit.  So this year I downsized to 6 plants.  Huh.  I didn't notice much of a difference, I still had 1,000,002 tomatoes to take care of. 

My daughter's fiance's mother posted a recipe for Roasted Tomato Soup from Zupa's on Facebook.  I gave it a try and I love it!  I've shared it with other tomato growers and this recipe has been adopted by many.

My favorite part of the recipe is that I don't have to peel or remove the seeds.  Hallelujah!  It says to strain the tomatoes through a sieve, but I don't find that necessary.  I like to add rice to my soup.  Delicious!

My friend told me I could roast the tomatoes and then freeze them for this soup.  I tried it and it works great!  Just roast the tomatoes with the garlic and then seal them in ziploc bags and freeze.  I will be able to enjoy this soup all winter!
