Ingredients
  

  • 6 large tomatoes sliced into wedges
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper or 3 mini red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk or cream (use coconut milk if vegan)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh basil finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese grated (optional. Omit if vegan)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Chop tomatoes into wedges (quarter them or slice them into 6 wedges, depending on the size of the tomatoes). Slice the onion and red pepper. Place all of the chopped vegetables on the tray.
  • Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt and Italian seasoning. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Place the roasted vegetables in a food processor or blender and add the broth. Puree until smooth.
  • Transfer the soup to a large pot and heat it over medium heat. Stir in the milk or cream and cover the pot with a lid and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese (if using)
  • Before serving, season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in fresh basil and serve.

Notes

  • *Tip: if you find your tomatoes are a bit too acidic, add a pinch (or more) of sugar to offset the acidity.
