6clovesgarlicwhole or smashed
1tspbutteror 1 tsp olive oil for vegan/dairy free
2yellow onionmedium. sliced
2tbspwhite wineor sherry. optional
Soup and garnish
2tbspsun-dried tomato pestooptional, see below for recipe*
2-3cupschicken or vegetable stock
add-ons: cooked pasta, fresh herbs, good breadoptional
Pre-heat oven: Pre-heat oven to 350F (175C).
Roast tomatoes: To a baking sheet, add tomatoes (large one cut in half), garlic, herbs, olive oil and salt. Stir. Roast 1 hour, turn halfway through.
Caramelize onions: In a large skillet, add oil and butter on low heat. Add sliced onion and stir occasionally, let it cook for about 30 minutes, adding in salt after 10 minutes.**
Optional step: You can then deglaze the pan with balsamic vinegar and white wine. Just pour a tiny amount in and stir the brown pieces to release.
Blend the ingredients: add all the ingredients on the baking sheet and caramelized onions to a blender. Add in sun-dried tomato pesto, if using and dried oregano and chili flakes. Blend until smooth.
Re-heat the soup: When all is well and blended, add it to a saucepan to re-heat a little. Add in balsamic vinegar and add as much chicken or vegetable stock to reach your desired thickness. I used about 2 1/2 cups. Simmer for 10 minutes to blend all the flavors together.
Serve with: cooked pasta, bread and fresh herbs.
* Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Recipe** You could even go longer if you want to. Or shorter if that's needed. You don't need to keep your eyes on it at all times, I usually go check on it every 7-10 minutes. But make sure it's on low (to medium). If you are more around, stirring every other minute, increasing the temp works too to make it caramelize quicker.
