Benefits of Basil Leaves You Must Know!!

  • Good For Digestion
  • Anti-inflammatory & Antioxidant
  • Skin Benefits
  • Diabetes Management
  • Supports Liver Function and Helps Detoxify the Body
  • Promote healthy gut
  • Immune-booster
  • Be sure to use good quality canned tomatoes for this recipe since there aren’t a lot of other ingredients to mask the bitter or metallic flavor that you may get with low grade canned tomatoes.  Homegrown, organic and/or San Marzano region tomatoes will typically give the best flavor.  Any brand of tomatoes grown in and imported from Italy will likely yield delicious results.
  • Important Tip is to prefer more bone broth to liquidise the soup even more.
  • If you want to add sugar, only add our sugar substitutes allowed and especially the ones, which do not have any carbs.
  • Best option is not to sweeten this Low Carb Roasted Tomato Basil soup with anything. The reason is that the beefsteak tomatoes are sweet enough on its own, but if you still want to add some sugar, then you can still use stevia.

Necessary Tools Needed

  • Baking Sheet – use regular size baking sheet, for you to be able to spread all of the veggies in one layer
  • Parchment Paper – the best option, to make your roasting cleaner friendly
  • Hand Immersion Blender – to mix the roasted tomatoes and vegetables into a creamy tomato soup is a must
  • Medium Size Pot – you would need that for mixing all of the roasted vegetable together
  • Beefsteak tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Fresh Basil
  • Olive Oil
  • Bone Broth
  • Salt & pepper
  • Prepare your baking sheet and line it with a parchment paper. Spread your beefsteak tomatoes cot into thicker slices. In between add garlic cut into halves and onion cut into squares. I have also added few cherry tomatoes.
  • On top of the vegetables add fresh Thyme and sprinkle it with a bit of salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle all with Extra virgin Olive Oil. Just in case you do have avocado oil or any Italian flavored oil, that would go perfect together as well. Add few drops of those as well. Prefer to add Chilli oil to it. That gives the soup a great spicy twist.
  • Place it all into the oven and bake on 200C or 400F for 40 minutes. You will be surprised by the beautiful smell coming out of the kitchen while baking.
  • After all of the baking is done, clean all of the stems. You do not want them to end up in your soup. Especially the baby tomatoes ends and stems from Thyme, which are pretty hard after baking.
  • Once you have it all done, place all of the baked tomatoes and vegetables together with thyme into a medium size pot.
  • Tomato and basil goes hand in hand. So there is no way, we will be ignoring that.
  • Add your fresh basil leaves. Fresh Basil leaves gives the soup an unbelievable twist and your soup will become even better you can imagine.
  • Adding freshly made Bone Broth will further enhance a flavour of your homemade fresh from the garden roasted tomato and garlic soup. As mentioned above, less bone broth you add, thicker the soup will be. But on the other side, more carbohydrates it will have for you to consider. I normally add 2 cups of fresh Bone Broth we make weekly in our Instant Pot.
  • Using a handheld blender, mix all of it into a perfectly creamy tomato soup with fresh tomatoes. In about a minute you will be done and ready to serve. Hope you will love this soup as much as we love it.

Can you make roasted tomato soup in an Instant Pot?

  • Because this is a Low Carb Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, it will be pretty difficult to bake it inside the Instant Pot. You can quick roast all of the vegetables on a Saute function, then add bone broth and cook it all. But I still doubt this will be as flavorful as if you bake it inside the oven.
  • You can make a normal easy tomato basil soup there, it just won’t be roasted one. Still, a good choice if you prefer your Instant Pot.

Why is my tomato soup not red?

  • There are various reason your soup will not turn fully dark red.
  • Your tomatoes are the ones, which plays a major role. Some of them are not always fully deep red color and although by roasting them the color intensifies, it might still not be enough red for your liking.
  • Adding onions and garlic will make the soup further much lighter. Therefore I always prefer to add purple onions to our Roasted Tomato soup. They will add not only a perfect flavor but color as well.
  • But at the end, it does not really matter what type of red color your soup looks. It still is red, sometimes might be a bit orange. But it tasted unbelievable. And that its all that matters.

How can you thicken tomato basil soup?

If you do feel your Keto Soup is too liquify either because you have added too much of bone broth, or for some other reason and you prefer it a bit thicker, there are some solutions as well.

  1. Avocados – using soft avocados mixed into a soup will immediately thicken the soup and make it even more flavorful
  2. Less Broth – Next time add a less bone broth to make it thicker if you do prefer
  3. Cauliflower – You can also thicken your soup by adding baked cauliflower into the soup.
  4. Xanthan Gum or Gelatin – those will do the same job for thickening. Just be extra careful with Xanthan. You really need a tiny little amount of it. Otherwise your soup will turn into a big spooky slime.
