Category: Healthy Recipes, Peppers, Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (use a good olive oil - I like the Lucini Brand)
  • 10 plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup white onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs - remove leaves and discard stalk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 bunches basil - remove leaves and chiffonade
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon chicken base such as Better Than Bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the tomatoes, 1 cup sliced onion, and 3 garlic cloves, chopped, in a mixing bowl and toss in 4 tablespoons olive oil to coat the veggies. Line a baking sheet with foil (I like to double line it for easier clean up). Place tomato mixture on baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, chiffonade leaves from 2 bunches of fresh basil and leaves from 2 fresh thyme sprigs - making sure to get some on each tomato. Marvel at how beautiful it is! I wish I had gotten a picture - anything this beautiful has to taste good!

2. Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until caramelized. Mix 3 cups water and 1 tablespoon chicken base and heat the stock in the microwave. Pour the roasted veggies into a blender and puree. Add 2 cups of the heated stock into the blender and continue to puree until smooth. Add more stock as needed for desired consistency. I ended up using about 2 cups. Give it a taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Cook up some grilled cheese sammiches and enjoy this delicious meal!!
