Serves: 6


  • 3 slices New York Brand® Texas Garlic Toast
  • 12 large Roma tomatoes, each cut in half
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • One (14 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400° F. Oil a rimmed sheet pan and transfer tomatoes to the pan, cut side down. Roast tomatoes for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; cool slightly and peel off the tomato skin, discard the skin.

Chop 2 slices New York Brand Texas Garlic Toasts into 1-inch pieces, to be used in the soup and chop the remaining slice into ½-inch pieces to be used as a garnish for the soup.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat; add onions and sauté 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, stock, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Add the 2 chopped slices of toast and stir into the soup mixture.  In small batches, carefully puree the hot soup in a blender or food processor. Transfer the soup back to the pot and stir in the basil. Garnish the soup with additional chopped toast.
