No, you do not! The skin blisters nice while roasted and adds extra flavor, if you want a silky smooth soup, you will want to peel the tomatoes

How can I add flavor to tomato soup?

You can add extra flavor to the soup by mixing in heavy cream or milk, seasoning heavily with salt & pepper, toasting red pepper flakes or other spices before blending, and by incorporating ingredients like roasted garlic or onions. Topping with homemade herb oil, fresh herbs, or grated parmesan cheese is also a good way to add extra flavor.

I love to make a quick herb oil, like chive oil to drizzle over my soup for extra flavor.

Instructions:

For the cherry tomato soup:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On a large baking tray, toss the tomatoes, shallot, and garlic in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 30-35 minutes until blistered and fragrant.
  • Heat butter in a large Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Once warm, add in the roasted shallots and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Place cherry tomatoes plus any juice from roasting. Add in the heavy cream or milk, stir to combine. Blend using an immersion stick blender or a table top blender. Blend the roasted tomatoes until smooth. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, heat for 5-10 minutes to reduce slightly.

For the chive oil:

  • In a small saucepan heat water over high heat until boiling. Add in the bundle of chives, simmer for 20-30 seconds. Remove and transfer to a bowl full of ice water.
  • In the base of a blender combine the chives and olive oil. Pulse for 30-60 seconds. Strain, reserving the oil. Transfer to an airtight container*
  • Serve soup topped with fresh chive oil and fresh herbs. Store any leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Notes:

*Any unused chive oil will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

* Serve with grilled cheese if desired, top with a little olive oil, chive oil or crème fraiche, and fresh herbs.

*You can freeze this soup – simply let cool completely, transfer to freezer-safe containers, label, and freeze for up to 4 months.
