Simple Roasted Tomato Soup
If you're a person that's perfectly happy to call a cozy bowl of soup dinner, then this is for you. Roma tomatoes, onion, and garlic are roasted on sheet pans, then blitzed with olive oil and broth until deliciously creamy. The trick to the creaminess without any cream is to add a steady stream of olive oil while blending until smooth. The oil emulsifies and creates a soup so creamy that you'd swear it's loaded with dairy! Serve with a hearty slice of wholegrain grilled bread rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil.
