Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds tomatoes stemmed and sliced in half
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 medium yellow onion peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium potato peeled and but into quarters or eighths, depending on size
  • 1 medium red bell pepper seeded and cut into 3 - 4 pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup basil lightly packed, chopped
  • 1 tsp parsley dried
  • pinch granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • In a large bowl, add the tomatoes, garlic, onion,red pepper and potato. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Transfer the vegetables to a large baking pan with raised edges. Spread into a single layer, tomato cut sides down. Roast on center rack of oven for 25 - 30 minutes, until tomatoes begin to char on top.
  • Scrape the contents of the baking pan, including juices, into a large pot. Stir in the broth, tomato paste, dried basil (if using instead of fresh basil) and parsley.
  • Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. The potatoes should be fork tender. Add fresh basil during the last 5 minutes of simmering to soften.
  • In the pot, blend the soup with an immersion blender until smooth.

Notes

I used approximately 2 pounds Beefsteak, 1 pound Roma and 1 pound cherry tomatoes.
If salt sensitive - omit the measured salt and only salt to taste
