Homemade Roasted-Tomato Soup with Parmesan Wafers








Recipe: Roasted-Tomato Soup with Parmesan Wafers

One of my favorite ways to indulge in cold weather with a hearty & healthy belly-warming soup. 5 years ago, my dear friend Kate introduced me to the world's best tomato bisque at Peacock Cafe in Georgetown. When she told me I had to order it I initially balked at the idea - why have soup when you can have a delicious muster & turkey sammy on a baguette?? Well, she was right. It is mindblowingly delicious. I order it every time I am there and I could eat it every day. Not kidding. I plan on torturing the chef (waterboarding tomato soup boarding him) for the recipe.

Until then, I impressed myself and declared my culinary prowess after making this one from Epicurious. It has a wonderful rustic from-scratch texture and roasting the tomatoes avoids blandness and adds a sophisticated flavor. Plus that classic tomatoey goodness practically teleports me back to my childhood... oh to be young, careless, side ponytailed, and neon in the 80's.

Enjoy. xo.
