Happy Thanksgiving ♥...Roasted Tom and Basil Recipe

Today I am Thankful:

God put me right where I am meant to be
and has blessed me abundantly.
For my sweet husband.
For my wonderful sweet girls,
and that Mic is home with us again and found a job.
For a roof over my head and food in my tummy.
For our families, Here and Away.
Good friends Old and New.
For all the little things that make me smile throughout each day.


Blessings Kelsie


Roast Tomato and Basil Soup

  • 2 lg cans (28oz) peeled whole tomatoes, drained and seeded (reserve 3 cups of liquid)
  • 2 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 ts ground allspice
  • 3 Tbs tomato paste
  • 8oz thickening cream
  • 1/4 cup or about 10 lg leaves basil leaves

Preheat oven to 450F. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Arrange seeded tomatoes in a single layer and sprinkle with the onion and brown sugar.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until all liquid is evaporated and tomatoes begin to color.
Allow to cool slightly, then remove from cookie sheet and put into a blender...Add a dash of chicken broth to help liquefy roasted toms...I do this usually in 2 small batches.
Combine liquefied toms, tomato paste, remaining chicken broth, reserved tomato liquid and allspice to crockpot and allow to cook on low for 8hrs (high for 4hrs)
I add my basil into a "tea ball" and drop into crockpot during the last hr..with 30minutes.
to go, finally add cream and mix well.

Serve with crusty bread and enjoy.
