Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

I just love a great vegetable soup for lunch or dinner. We usually have a great potato, tomato and onion harvest in our garden so a Fresh Tomato Vegetable Soup is easy to put together and so good with fresh products. We always can enough in the summer months so we can enjoy fresh products the year round When we have the grill going I like to fire roast my tomatoes, this gives them a great smoky flavor and really brings the flavor of the tomato out. We preserve the Fire Roasted Tomatoes and have a cold bin for the onions and potatoes in our barn, so we enjoy these products the year round.  For this recipe today we are using the fire roasted tomatoes that really make this soup special.

Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

Bring to boil and reduce heat to low, cook on low for 30 minutes until the onions and potatoes are tender.
Recipe Tip
We have added, diced Chicken Breast, Corn and Black Beans to this recipe and it is delicious or for another flavor we use Bacon Grease instead of Olive Oil and add crisp Bacon to garnish.
The soup freezes well for up to three months.

This is a great soup to have on hand to serve a friend when they come out to visit from the city and I sure am glad you drove out to the country to visit with us today.  I have a jar of this soup for you to take home with you so don't forget it.  Hope you have a very special week and come back to see us real soon.
Peace and Joy
