Another Delicious hearty warm soup recipe with Roasted Tomatoes and Vegetables.
10 tomatoes, thickly sliced
4 red peppers, stems and seeds discarded and thickly sliced
10 courgettes, ends discarded and thickly sliced
2 large eggplants, thickly sliced
2 onions, peeled and sliced
8-10 garlic cloves
Olive oil, for drizzling
Salt and ground black pepper
5 cups stock
1/4 cup basil pesto, or to taste
Water, if necessary, for thinning
Crusty bread, to serve
Preheat the oven to 200C
Put the vegetables into a large baking dish along with the garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Don’t hold back. Toss the veg to coat well.
Place in the oven, uncovered, for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables start to brown. Cover with foil, reduce the heat to 180C and bake for another 30 minutes, until the veg are soft.
Remove the dish from the oven; take out the garlic cloves and set aside.
Put the vegetables into a large pot, along with the stock. Squeeze the roasted garlic into the soup, add the basil pesto, and stir with a wooden spoon.
Use a hand blender or food processor to blitz the soup. If necessary, use water to achieve desired consistency. Check seasoning and serve hot or cold with crusty bread.
