Roasted Tomato Garlic Soup (SCD)

In the cold of winter there are few things as comforting as a bowl of homemade soup. Hot soup warms you from the inside out, and this soup is the ideal flu season treat. Only 3 main ingredients and some spices, and I promise you'll be making this over and over again.

6 medium to large size tomatoes

Cut in half, place face side up on baking dish and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt.

1 Head of Garlic

Slice of the very tips on the top all the way across the garlic head and place in the baking dish with all of the leaves still on.

Bake at 400 degrees for an hour.

Put the tomatoes and garlic cloves (take off all the excess stuff and throw away) and any juices from the pan into a blender (like the Vitamix) and blend until chunky, or the consistency that you like.

Transfer tomatoes, garlic, and 3 cups of chicken stock into a pot to simmer. Add 3 Tbsp of basil, 2 Tbsp of thyme, and 1 Tbsp of white pepper. Simmer on medium-low for 20 minutes. Add salt to your taste. Enjoy!
Perfect with SCD Saltine Crackers.



  1. Is it necessary to simmer the soup? Or is heating it in the vitamix enough?

    1. You can eat it straight out of the Vitamix. Simmering just thickens it.

  2. I'm new to the SCD Diet, I'm enjoying and appreciate your blog. I 've made the Roasted Tomato Garlic Soup's wonderful. It's as good as any soup you'll find in a five star restaurant.!!!
    Recently you made a reference to tomato paste on facebook. What brand is legal?
