Creamy Balsamic Tomato Soup

Ok so I was a little adventurous today and made 3 recipes. This is a super simple and tasty comfort soup. Serve with cheesy garlic bread or a grilled cheese. If your on a diet maybe add a salad. You can also garnish with whatever floats you boat. I choose parmesan cheese and fresh basil. You could also do salsa and sour cream or for your inner 5 year old add goldfish.

Creamy Balsamic Tomato Soup

1 cup broth (I used Beef broth but you could use chicken or vegetable)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup chopped onion
5 cloves garlic
2(28 once) cans whole tomatoes drained
¾ cup half-an-half
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 500 degrees

Combine ½ cup broth, brown sugar, vinegar and soy sauce in a small bowl. Place onion garlic and tomatoes in a greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Pour broth mixture over tomato mixture.  Bake at 500 for 50 minutes or until vegiatables are lightly browned.

Place tomato mixture in blender or food processor. Add remaining ½ cup of broth and half-an-half and process until smooth. This make take a few batches depending on the size of you blender.
