Since this soup is called Oven Roasted Tomato Soup, you may be wondering where the roasting tomatoes come in. Well, don’t worry because you’re not roasting tomatoes over an open fire.

Can I make roasted tomato soup on the Traeger or other pellet grill?

100% YES. 

In fact, it is my favorite way to roast tomatoes because it leaves them with just a hint of wood-fired flavor that really compliments the soup in nice ways. 

Just crank your grill up to 375° and follow the same instructions as you would for roasting these in the oven. It is SO easy, and you’ll love it.

How to Make Tomato Soup

If you’re interested in how to make tomato soup, this recipe is for you. It’s a no-fuss recipe that is one of the easier ones I’ve made. Whether you’re new to cooking or have been making soups for years, people of all ages and walks of life will love this recipe. 

Start by preheating the oven to 375. This is always the part that I forget, so this is your friendly reminder to preheat your oven. 

You’ll want to take the tomatoes that you’re using and cut them in half. Then toss the tomatoes with olive oil and then place on a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment or a silpat mat.

Add the onion to the baking sheet. Put salt and pepper on the ingredients and then place in the oven. You will cook this for around 20-30 minutes. You’ll notice everything will start to turn brown on top.  

Once you reach the last five minutes of everything baking in the oven, you’ll want to sprinkle the garlic on it. Garlic can be strong, so make sure you wait to add it! 

You will want to remove this concoction from the oven, place in a blender. Use the puree setting.

When the tomato soup is blended, you’ll want to add half and half, plus basil. 

Serve the Oven Roasted Tomato Soup hot and with your favorite toppings.
