Roasted Frozen Tomato Soup

For those following, you will find that I do not like food waste and so I try to make the most out of what I have.  At the end of summer, I start to tire of tomato everything, so I will do a few different things with them to preserve them.  I might pickle them, turn them in to a jam, a fermented salsa or a freezer ready marinara.  When I do not have time for any of that, I just freeze them whole (depending on the size).  

When I was planning out this recipe, I wanted a tomato soup that could be filling on its own.  This is a challenge in my household of meat-eating men who shy away from their veggies.  By adding in the carrots, celery, onion and bell peppers to the soup it created a denser consistency.  Also, by using chicken stock verses vegetable broth and adding marscapone in at the end, it gave this soup the protein needed to fill them up!

Freezer Roasted Tomato Soup

Since I had so many tomatoes this summer, I had to bag some of our harvest and freeze them. My father-in-law recommend I do this for making salsa. He uses sandwich bags and freezes the chiles with the tomatoes in the quantity he wants for his next salsa. Smart man! Instead of salsa, I made this warm, hearty tomato soup.

My name is Emely Hernandez, I am following my dream to cook and mission to help others. As a home visiting nurse, I saw many first time moms who did not know how to cook and this worried me because if they could not feed themselves nutritious meals, what were they going to feed their baby? I am striving to make an impact in my community, whether by cooking a nourishing meal for the homeless or teaching a new mother how to cook and feed her family. This has led me to finally attend cooking school at the San Francisco Cooking School.
