Roasted Tomato Soup
I was attracted to this recipe by the "roasted" part. And the "tomato" part. And the "soup" part. It came out a lot different than I expected, but it was delicious. It was simple to roast all the tomatoes, pepper, onion, and garlic. I didn't even set the timer. I think since I used plum tomatoes, it was not as tomato-y as it should be, so I added a bit of tomato paste to amp up the tomato flavor. I left tiny chunks in the soup, so it had a bit of chew, and added some cooked brown rice, which complemented the texture of the soup. I also had to add an extra sprinkle of the smoked paprika... very tasty. This was a small pot of soup, so it's already all gone! You can see the recipe here, but it's also in Super Natural Cooking. I think the lack of photo in the book is probably the reason I haven't thought to make it before.
