Zesty Roasted Tomato Soup with Spiced Oil

Soup with Spiced Oil | With A Spin


I love the classic tomato basil soup, but I love this zesty roasted tomato soup with spiced oil even more. This soup is a perfect marriage of tastes between the East and the West. Roasted tomato and garlic paired with ginger, cilantro, green chili, and a spiced oil that is a total comfort food. A perfectly balanced spicy, sweet and tart soup masterpiece. Would you like to give it a try and savor the warmth?


I had a hate hate relationship with tomato for the longest time. My mom being a mom would force me to finish my tomato salad at the end of lunch or dinner as I wouldn’t have touched a slice until she forced. Tomato soup was something I would never ever even touch let alone consume. Even though the relationship status changed few years ago, I don’t particularly recall when that transformation took place.


Tomato | With A Spin


Most likely, I fell in love with tomato soup when my husband begged me to try a spoon of his tomato basil soup few years ago. There was no turning back after that. Jeez, what have I been missing? Now, tomatoes are staple in my refrigerator and tomato soups are adored, as it rightfully deserves.

Served hot, this tomato soup provides much comfort and warmth during cold weather but tastes delicious cold as well during the summer months. Pair with some bread or grilled cheese sandwich for lunch or garnish with cilantro and serve at dinner or at parties as a starter.

I alternate between homemade chicken or vegetable stock to enrich the soup but have used water as well, which was just fine. If you have panch foron available, try a variation of the soup with panch foron instead of just mustard and cumin seeds spiced oil. You can easily double, triple or quadruple the quantity and freeze the soup.


This soup was featured on Best Friends For Frosting earlier in the week.  Head over to BFFFF to check out the recipe in English.

    oh what lovely photos! Love the styling and the colors and the props :-) Am with you on not liking tomato soup as a kid–even though it was one of my mom’s favorite dishes. But now love it! Want to try your version.

    Your soup looks lovely, and since it is so cold here right now, we are eating a lot of soup. I am intrigued by the blend of eastern and western flavourings, since I enjoy cooking different cuisines so much. My family would love this too, I’m sure.

    I have eaten and enjoyed various tomato soups, but I’ve never ate them with so many spices. I wonder what does it taste like :) Anyway, it looks really appealing, not only during the hot summer months, but also now, during winter.

      Thank you for stopping by Irene. Actually, it’s only four spices – garlic, ginger and mustard and cumin for the spiced oil. All the flavors are subtle and not overwhelming at all. We love this soup through out the year. Have a fabulous week.
