Every time I think of tomatoes, I think of my dad too. He’s a passionate gardener, especially when it comes to tomatoes. He pours all his energy and love into growing tomatoes. However, we only have about 10 plants at home, which isn’t enough for the whole family. Yup, we are big tomato lovers over here. So when we do buy them, we look for the best quality and buy them from our local producer called Lušt. This Roasted Tomato Soup is made with a mixture of tomatoes, and you can do the same. Use as many varieties as possible (but one is fine too); just make sure they are ripe, juicy, and naturally sweet. This is a lovely summer soup recipe, perfect for any day.
