This roasted tomato and basil soup is a comforting classic that everyone will enjoy. I personally love this recipe because it’s delicious, gluten-free, SIBO friendly, and creamy even without cream. If you can tolerate parmesan cheese, you can sprinkle some freshly grated parmesan on top to make a cheesy version of this soup.

  • 2 lbs plum roma tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

  1. I love your site, Rebecca–I’ve consulted it off and on for some time, and now will be using it heavily as I come off of the elemental diet and need to take things slowly (I have some of your chicken broth on the stove-top as I type). I was going to try the tomato and basil soup in the next few days, but on looking into it, I think it might not be low FODMAP. Per Monash, the “green light” serve of Roma tomatoes is 1 small tomato. By 3.33 tomatoes, it goes “yellow light” for fructans, and by 4 tomatoes it’s “red light” for fructans. I’ll definitely keep this recipe tucked away in case I find that fructans aren’t a problem for me. Thanks for this fantastic resource!

    1. Hi Erik
      Monash University have just announced the revision to a few foods, including tomatoes, in their FODMAP directory. Unfortunately this means fewer tomatoes can be consumed. I have removed the low fodmap classification of this recipe. It is still suitable for the SIBO Bi Phasic Diet.

      1. Ah, got it. I sure hope I end up ok for fructans, because wow do I love tomatoes! I did try the bi-phasic diet in the recent past, before finally deciding it was time to go full-on elemental diet. I found it (bi-phasic) super challenging, in terms of satiety. But I may need to go that route, again.

  2. This was very good although the color was more on the brown side instead of a deep red. I’m wondering if it was because I added more basil. The recipe yielded 3 average size bowls as a main. I served a salad and mini grilled cheese as sides. I’ll make this again!
