First, preheat the oven to 425F. Next, wash and de-stem the tomatoes. Depending on the size of the fruit, cut them into halves, quarters, or sixths. Keep in mind that everything will get blended up later, so the size and shape doesnt matter much. Go ahead and leave cherry tomatoes whole. Remove any hard center cores around the stem area as needed. Maintain the skins and guts intact; those add flavor and nutrients!Â

Dont skimp on the salt! Because were working with so few ingredients here, its ultra-important to season this soup. If you dont add enough salt, the tomatoes can taste bland so taste and season as you go. If the flavors arent popping enough, add more salt a pinch at a time. We love Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt or Morton Kosher Salt in our kitchens.
Always use caution when blending hot foods. For best results, remove the center cap piece on your blenders lid before blending to allow steam to escape. Cover the hole in the lid with a clean tea towel for a moment when you begin blending and again when you stop the blender to avoid spatters. If your blender is on the small side, you may need to blend your soup in batches. Always follow the care instructions on your equipment and use caution when blending hot soups. If your soup has cooled too much by the time its blended, transfer the pured soup to a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until it comes back to temperature.
