Fire Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup - almost like Paradise Bakery & Cafe

If you grew up on Campbell’s Tomato Soup - this is an entirely different experience. Chunky, thick, with a rich tomato/garlic flavor - this soup is almost all you need for a meal. Add breadsticks, green salad, and a little fresh fruit. Try drizzling with sour cream or creamy fresh tomatillo dressing - and sprinkle with tortilla strips or chips.

At Paradise Cafe, they drizzle the bowl of soup with thinned sour cream, then top with tortilla strips. Keep a squeeze bottle in your refrigerator to top bowls of soup with little mess. We also like this soup with Creamy Tomatillo & Cilantro Dressing. Watch for this dressing recipe in the next upcoming post.

  1. I'm wondering if, in the heat of the summer, you could serve this chilled. Would the flavors still come through? The accompaniments you suggested would still be perfect, I think. Just wondering.

    Anyway, I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.
