There's nothing quite like a hot bowl of tomato soup and a crispy grilled cheese sandwich on a chilly day. This recipe combines the classic comfort foods in a delicious and easy-to-make dish that will leave you feeling warm and satisfied.


Tomato Soup:

  • 8 Roma tomatoes

  • 1 Spanish onion

  • 1 head of garlic

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup fresh basil

  • 1/4 cup dairy-free cream

  • 1 tbsp marsala wine (optional)

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp cracked pepper

Grilled Cheese:

  • Sliced Italian bread

  • Gruyere Cheese (or whatever you like)

  • Parsley

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Garlic powder

  • 1/2 stick of butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

  2. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them on a baking sheet or deep dish pan.

  3. Slice the onion into wedges and add them to the baking sheet.

  4. Remove the outer layer of skin from the head of garlic, leaving the cloves intact. Cut off the top of the head to expose the cloves and place it on the baking sheet.

  5. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  6. Roast for 40 minutes until the tomatoes are soft and slightly charred. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  7. Once cooled, squeeze out garlic into a blender and add the tomatoes and onions with the juices.

  8. In a blender, combine the roasted vegetables with chicken broth, fresh basil, dairy-free cream, marsala wine, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.

  9. Pour the soup into a pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  10. While the soup is simmering, prepare the grilled cheese sandwiches. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.

  11. Spread butter on each side of the bread.

  12. Sprinkle parsley, salt, pepper, and garlic powder on one side of each slice of bread.

  13. Place two slices of bread in the skillet, seasoned side down. Add a slice of cheese on each slice of bread and let it melt.

  14. Once the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown, remove from heat and place one slice of bread on top of the other to form a sandwich.

  15. Repeat with remaining slices of bread and cheese.

  16. Serve tomato soup in bowls and serve warm with the grilled cheese sandwiches on the side for dipping.

Enjoy this warm and comforting tomato soup with gooey, cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches. It's the perfect meal for a cozy night in or a quick lunch option!
