Roasted Vegetable Soup

Killing two birds with one stone. Now that is the ticket to some good meals during a busy week. This past week I made some really fantastic cornish hens with a lot of mushrooms and a wine reduction that was just out of this world. As I thought I was going to make a pan sauce from the dripping with the handful of vegetables I had cut up for the base of the roasting pan, I decided to do something different with those vegetables. The cornish hens were something beautiful and I decided to make an herb orzo pasta dish to go with it rather than some garlic mashed potatoes, and sure, I could have used the ever so tender vegetables from the roasting pan, however I decided to hold off, and make a soup with them instead, and I am so glad that I did.

Roasted Vegetable Soup Recipe

After having the tender vegetables cooled off, I decided that it would be super easy just to throw them in a blender and make a soup. It was literally just that easy!

Lets get started.


  • 4 ribs of celery, cleaned, and quartered
  • 1 large carrot, ends trimmed, and quartered
  • 3 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • generous pinch of salt
  • generous pinch of pepper
  • 4 cups of chicken stock, brought to a boil
  • Toasted baguette (optional)

So with your leftover roasted vegetables, toss them into a blender. Add the chicken stock, salt, and pepper, and puree. Pulse it down to the consistency of how you would like your soup. I leave mine with some ‘bits’ for some added texture. The flavor is so robust and delicious and is perfect for cold days (which we have been having in Wisconsin). Serve with a toasted baguette.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. This sounds delicious! might just have to roast some vegetables just to make this soup, especially since a blizzard is moving in where I live.
