  • 5 large tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, peeled, quartered
  • 1 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 whole garlic bulb, top sliced off
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 1 cup veggie stock
  • Small handful basil, torn


PREHEAT the oven to 200ºC.

PLACE the tomatoes, onion, red pepper and garlic in a large roasting tray. Season with salt and pepper and toss with olive oil, paprika and thyme sprigs.

ROAST the veggies at 200ºC for 35-45 minutes or until softened and just starting to brown.

SQUEEZE the garlic out of the skin; discard skin and pick out the thyme sprigs from the veggies. Transfer the veggie mixture to a large pot and add the stock and basil; cook until heated through and blend with a stick blender until smooth.

LADLE the roasted tomato soup into bowls and serve with a drizzle of cream, fresh basil and a crack of black pepper. Enjoy with a grilled cheese toastie on the side.


A note from the team: We love making our cheese toasties with sourdough bread. Butter the bread and sandwich two slices with grated cheddar, grated mozzarella, thyme and salt and pepper. Toast in a frying pan or sandwich press until the bread is golden and the cheese is completely melted. Slice in half and serve.
