"As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not only because my bees love it but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language.

The refrigerator light goes on...

Even though this soup takes a little time to make most of that time is in roasting the tomatoes. The recipe is quite easy and the perfect fall soup with a hearty whole wheat (or gluten-free) roll and a salad and you have the perfect dinner.

Garlic

Garlic is a member of the onion family and is a close cousin to red and white onions as well as leeks and shallots. Like others in the Alliaceae family, garlic is strong and pungent when fresh and raw, but mellows as it cooks, taking on a slightly sweet, savory/umami flavor.

Cooking garlic over high heat and letting it brown will turn the garlic slightly bitter. With some recipes, I want that flavor, but when I want a softer, sweeter garlic flavor, as in Tomato Sauce or Fettuccini Alfredo, I cook the garlic very slowly over a low heat so that it turns a soft white color and then translucent.

3 lbs tomatoes
spray olive oil
1 tsp olive oil
2 ears fresh corn
1/4 cups white onion (diced)
2 cloves garllc (minced)
2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups water
1/2 cups white wine
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary
1 Tbsp fresh thyme
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
4 2 ounce whole wheat or gluten-free rolls

Preheat oven to 400F. Place tomatoes in a shallow roasting pan. Spray a light coating of olive oil over the tomatoes. Place the pan in preheated oven and roast for about one hour.

Slice the corn into 1/2 ears and place in a sauce pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil for 7 - 10 minutes. Remove and let cool. Shuck corn by slicing kernels from the ears.

About 10 minutes before the tomatoes are finished heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring constantly. As the onion browns add the corn and cook over medium-high heat stirring frequently. The corn should begin to turn brown quickly.

As the corn browns add the minced garlic. Stir, cooking on medium, for another 2 minutes and remove from the heat.

Remove the tomatoes and puree in a food processor or blender. Place the corn/onion/garlic mixture back on the burner over medium heat and add the tomato. Cook for about five minutes.

Add the chicken stock, wine, water, rosemary, thyme and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 15 minutes and serve with the whole wheat rolls.
