…time to make my favorite roasted tomato soup! ♡

I’m convinced that a fresh and cozy bowl of homemade tomato soup is the perfect recipe to bridge the gap this time of year between summer and autumn. And this roasted tomato soup recipe in particular is one of my all-time faves.

It features a short and simple ingredient list, including a few of my favorite seasonings plus whatever variety of small- to medium-sized tomatoes happen to look best that day. It’s easy to make in just a little over a half hour with minimal prep time. It’s naturally gluten-free and vegan, although you are welcome to add in some cream or cheese if you’d like. And if you happen to have some leftover bread on hand, I would also highly recommend making some croutons or grilled cheese (or grilled cheese croutons, see below) to go with the soup — always a nostalgic and delicious combo!

Seriously, in my book, it doesn’t get any better than homemade tomato soup that’s made with fresh, ripe, in-season tomatoes that have been roasted down until they are irresistibly rich and sweet. So let’s make the most of tomato season while it still lasts!

French Onion Soup Recipe

Who’s ready for a cozy bowl of homemade French onion soup? ♡

We actually just arrived home late last night from spending a week in Provence with our parents.  And amidst the most delicious week of meals together around the table in our little cottage — with fresh croissants and baguettes picked up from the local bakery, farmers market wild mushrooms and artichokes the size of your head, approximately one million French cheeses, herby olives, fresh raspberry tart, plus the loveliest crisp local rosés — I also channeled my inner Julia Child and simmered up a batch of my favorite French onion soup for dinner one evening.  And it was delightful.

I actually first shared this recipe here during my very first year of blogging — now ten years ago! — and have made it countless times since.  And it’s always, always a winner.  Nowadays, I tend to make it vegetarian (using veggie broth instead of traditional beef broth) so that both my husband and I can enjoy it.  And after living in Barcelona for a few years, we’ve also come to love the Spanish twist on this recipe as well, which includes cracking an egg into each soup bowl and then broiling it (with or without cheesy toast) until the egg is perfectly poached on top of the soup.

However its made, French onion soup is a classic and will forever remain one of my all-time favorite comfort foods.  So if you’re looking for a well-tested recipe to add to your repertoire, I can vouch that this one’s a keeper!
