Tomato Heart Soup


Roma tomatoes, cut into wedges
cloves garlic, in their skins
tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
tablespoon smoked paprika
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper (for roasting tomatoes)
cans Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted tomatoes
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (for soup)
cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
leaves fresh basil, torn


  • 1 Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • 2 Toss the tomato wedges and garlic with the oil, smoked paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes.
  • 3 Squeeze the garlic out of their skins and toss them into a food processor with the 2 cans of fire-roasted tomatoes and the roasted Romas. Blitz until pureed.
  • 4 Pour pureed tomatoes into a saucepan and simmer until heated through, 10 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • 5 In the meantime, heat a good non-stick pan over medium-low. Place the heart-shaped cookie cutter on the pan and sprinkle in 1/4 cup of the grated cheese, filling up the heart space. Once the cheese starts to melt and brown, remove the cookie cutter. Cook the cheese for about a minute. Flip and cook 1 more minute, until crisp. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat 3 more times.

Tomato Heart Soup  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

Oh hi, delicious and simple roasted tomato soup. Will you be mine?




I'll tell you what I diddly dang love. Soup. I love soup. I am so serious about loving soup.

I love tomato soup. Roasted tomato soup. A roasted tomato soup that tastes like the wings of salvation. A roasted tomato soup that calls for only a few ingredients that you can actually pronounce. A roasted tomato soup that comes together so fast you're still left with ample amounts of time to craft Valentine gifts out of dumpster dive finds.

Oh that's just me? Oh.

True love makes people weird. What can I say?

Grab ze goods. 2 cans of Muir Glen's fire-roasted diced tomatoes, 5 romas, garlic and smoked paprika. The basil is for garnish, but I included it here so you would think it was pretty.

Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes

Slice up your tomatoes into wedges and drizzle with oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Leave the garlic in their skins. They'll get all roasted and sweet and buttery and you'll flip.

Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic

Post-roast. Oh that rhymed.

Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic

Squeeze the garlic out of the skins. Resist licking. Toss those and the tomatoes into a food processor with your canned tomatoes. Pulse until you have a nice pureed sauce. Pour into a saucepan and start simmering for a quick sec.

In the meantime, make your parmesan crisps. I FORGOT to photograph the process because I had my eagle eye on them, hoping they wouldn't burn. Oops. But anyway, place a heart-shaped cookie cutter on your best non-stick pan and place little sprinkles of grated parmesan inside the cutter. Once the cheese starts to melt and brown, remove the cutter, flip and brown on the other side for about a minute. And you get….

Cheese Heart

These! Cheesy and crunchy all at once. Mmm.

Baked Cheese Hearts for Tomato Soup

Simmer the soup for about 10 minutes, if that. Just until it's all heated through and gorgeous. Season with salt and pepper.

Pureed Tomatoes for Soup

Ladle into bowls and serve with your homemade crisps! And the basil. Can't forget the basil.
