roasted tomato basil soup

it was a gray and rainy weekend filled with football, and a giant pot of soup seemed a fitting way to cap it off.  this is a super flavorful soup that’s pretty healthy, though we balanced the healthy bit with a grilled cheese.  i used this recipe from ina.  it ended up being a little more work than i really planned on, but it was worth it in the end, and we have a ton of leftovers.

first step is roasting tomatoes and doing all the chopping.  the only modification i made was adding a red pepper in the beginning with the onions.  i thought it would add more flavor than it actually did – i may try more next time.

assemble the soup and cook for 45 minutes…

send it all through the food processor, warm it back up, and voila!
