You can have your tomato soup all year round with grilled tomatoes! Too cold to go outside? Use your grill pan on your stove! This Grilled Tomato Soup is comforting all year long!
So, the temperature has been over 80F for the last 4 days, which means that summertime is officially upon us in South Georgia. Bring on the grilling and chilling in the backyard!
Of course, that means here come the bugs! YUCK! But that is another subject for another time…
Summertime means GRILLING!
I love to grill, actually Brooks grills and I sip cocktails while I supervise, and the kids love to eat outside. Summertime conjures up images of tomatoes fresh from the garden and watermelon spitting contests. Here were the fruits of our labor last summer in case you missed it.
Heirloom tomatoes from the farmer’s market. Shop local!
I love heirloom tomatoes because they are all meat!
Brooks usually stops by the farmers market on his way back from Atlanta and brings me some ripe Roma tomatoes so I am hoping for lots of tomatoes to can and have all summer.
While we are in the thick of warm weather, not too many people think of eating soup. But I am!

Grill marks and smoky taste!
I am always thinking about eating but this time, I am also breaking all the rules that say soup is just for winter. I love all grilled vegetables and I love vegetable soup so why can’t we combine them for a summer soup! You can serve this soup warm or you can eat it cold like a gazpacho.
Whatever floats your grill…
I used my indoor grill pan, this time, around since Brooks was out of town![/caption]
Summertime is supposed to be fun but most of all it is supposed to be easy. What could be easier than a soup that only has 5 ingredients! Feel free to add any other ingredient that you like, such as garlic or onions, but I like the simplicity of just the tomatoes.
When I was younger I used to eat tomatoes like apples. Just sprinkle a few salt grains onto the flesh and eating it like it was an apple.
To this day, I love tomatoes in any form and you can always find some in my kitchen. The simpler the better. I hope you fire up your grill and keep it simple this summer!
If you are a tomato lover like me then check out my Roasted Tomato Gazpacho Shooters and a traditional tapas favorite, the Pan Con Tomate! Both of these tomato recipes utilize “home-grown” or tomatoes found at the local farmer’s markets.
Which is really the best part of summer besides not trying to drag the kids out of bed for school!
