Remember in yesterday’s post, I mentioned that I’m a pumpkin addict? Well, I think I’m also a caprese addict too. From caprese mac and cheese to caprese quinoa salad, I cannot get enough caprese! And now, I’ve found my new love for caprese in tomato soup form.

With a batch of roasted tomatoes on a bed of onions and garlic, you can make this right in your blender (I used my Blendtec) or food processor. And you know you can’t forget about that creamy-melt-in-your-mouth burrata, sweet balsamic reduction and fresh chiffonade basil leaves. In all honesty, the soup is great and all, but really, the garnishes is what makes this soup perfection. And even though it’s super easy to make, it looks incredibly fancy and sophisticated, which is sure to impress your guests!

    Such a lovely, fresh looking soup! I love tomato bread soup, so simple yet delicious. Oh and I must try your balsamic reduction next time I make bruschetta, it looks wonderful.

    Thanks for visiting my blog ♥ ♥

    Loving your recipes and blog. I thought I knew my cheeses, but evidently not so. May I ask, what is baratta. Is it a name brand or type of cheese. I have never heard of this one (and I’m old) but young at heart and love love love food and to prepare it and share it with those I love! Thank you, keep up the passionate, wonderful work!! Love & Light to you this season.

      Thank you, Kat! Burrata is a type of cheese – a fresh Italian cheese, made from mozzarella and cream. It’s one of my favorite cheeses yet!

      There really is no true substitute for burrata. Fresh mozzarella can be used though but the flavors and textures will change from the original recipe here.

    I can tell this soup is going to be a great addition to my “foods made into soups” recipe collection- which my kids love to tease me about. (jalapeño popper soup, lasagna soup, enchilada soup, philly cheesesteak soup, etc.) I will most likely be forced to settle for fresh mozz instead of burrata since our town is lacking in the specialty food store department. I must have spent 2 hours yesterday hoping to trade my money for chipotle paste- for another one of your recipes-to no avail. But thank you, for the inspiring site that we all can have access to!
