Roasted Tomato Soup with Mexican Flavours

Roasted Tomato Soup with Mexican Flavours

When it’s chilly outside, I vastly prefer a warming soup to a cold salad.  So, I tend to start preparing soups and broths the moment the first cold-snap arrives.

The Mexican-inspired flavors of cumin and jalapeño pepper in this soup will warm both your palate and your stomach.  If your family does not eat spicy foods, you can always cut down the number of jalapeños.  Don’t worry, though.  Jalapeños are fairly mild, and I have deliberately added only a few to give the soup a subtle kick.

Roasting the tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeños is important because it brings out the natural sugars in all three, which really boosts the flavor.  Don’t worry if you go a little overboard and wind up with some nice brown bits — which is what I prefer to do.  Those caramel bits will give your soup a lovely depth and complexity.

If your family is anything like mine, you will probably start playing around with toppings to vary the soup from time to time.  Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Shredded cheddar
  • Crispy onions
  • Sour cream, with a little chipotle chile stirred through it
  • Green onions, thinly sliced
  • Fresh coriander

Bon appetit!
