Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup !

I don't know about you guys, do you feel the same as me or not ,but this year awful freezing weather is making me depress and fearful...four of us were down with cold, cough and sore throat...So past few days I did not cook a proper meal..we were surviving on ready meals or take away...
Today I am feeling little better so I thought I'll check out fridge if there is anything in there to cook...Surprise I found big pack of tomatoes....checked expiry date, luckily date was till 28th of December...I thought I better use them quickly...and first thought came in my mind something hot and spicy...and when there is a tomato , you obviously think of SOUP....so I asked kids and hubby if they want are interested in my choice....and we had a four yesssss ! very easy and tasty soup was ready in 40-45 minutes...let's see how I made it...

You will need:-
  • 1 pack of tomatoes ( 750 grams) halved
  • 2 medium red onions
  • 1 small carrot diced
  • 1/2 red pepper diced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 500 ml hot vegetable stock ( I used vegetable stock cube )
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • handful of torn basil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper powder
Method:-
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6-7. Place the tomatoes, onion, pepper,carrot and garlic in a roasting tin. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Season, then roast for 30-35 minutes, or until softened.Transfer the roasted vegetables to a saucepan and add the stock, basil and sugar. Bring to the boil, remove from the heat and liquidise with a hand blender or food processor.  Serve hot with any type of bread or croutons. Enjoy as much we did !!!!!
