Roasted Tomato Soup with Parmesan Crisps

Serves 4

Roasted Tomato Soup with Parmesan Crisps

A basic tomato soup has plenty of umami, but when you use roasted tomatoes, dried tomatoes, a whisper of soy sauce, and a crispy Parmesan accompaniment, each spoonful delivers considerably more. It’s comfort food taken to new heights. You can also press the easy button and garnish with a simple dusting of grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese.

Nutrition bonus

Tomatoes, particularly the sun-dried variety, are laced with lycopene, an antioxidant linked to improved brain functioning.

Roasting vegetables is a hands-off approach to making soup. Plus, it adds a smoky (more umami) element to the final dish.

As with tomato soup, adding a touch of soy sauce to tomato-based pasta sauces can pump up the flavour.
