Ingredients

  • lbs. Roma tomatoes halved
  • 2 medium red bell peppers deseeded and quartered
  • 1 large fennel bulb thinly sliced
  • 2 large carrots cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 medium shallots outer skin removed and halved
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed and peeled
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 T. fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 c. organic chicken broth
  • ½ c. full-fat coconut milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.
  • Arrange the tomatoes, red peppers, fennel, carrots, shallots, and garlic in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Toss to combine and sprinkle veggies with fresh thyme leaves.
  • Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast until vegetables are tender and lightly charred, approximately 20-25 minutes.

  • Using an immersion blender, blend contents of the soup pot until completely smooth. Stir in the coconut milk and fresh basil and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

Safety Tip: If you don’t have a stick or immersion blender, you can also process the cooked veggies and liquid in a blender. Make sure blender lid is properly vented to prevent the hot liquid from exploding, however.
