- 1 1/2 pounds large tomatoes, such as beefsteak, cut in half crosswise
- 1 medium sweet onion, such as Vidalia, peeled and cut in half crosswise
- 3 large clov garlic, unpeeled
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth, divided
- 1/4 cup tomato juice
- 1 teaspoon tomato paste
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
- Brown sugar, to taste (optional)
- 1/2 cup corn kernels, (fresh, from 1 ear, see Tip) or frozen, thawed
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Toss tomatoes, onion and garlic in a mixing bowl with 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread on the prepared baking sheet and roast until the vegetables are soft and caramelized, about 30 minutes. Let cool.
Peel and seed the tomatoes. Trim off the onion ends. Peel the garlic. Place the vegetables in a food processor or blender with 1 cup broth and the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Pulse to desired thickness and texture.
Transfer the vegetable puree to a large heavy pot or Dutch oven. Add the remaining 1 cup broth, tomato juice, tomato pate, Worcestershire sauce, basil and brown sugar (if using). Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often. Ladle into 6 soup bowls, garnish with corn and serve.
