This Roasted Tomato & Fennel Soup recipe brings the best out of seasonal fennel & tomatoes. Roasted with onion & garlic to intensify the flavours this soup is beautifully warming, comforting and will nourish your body and soul!
Prepare your vegetables. Wash and halve your tomatoes. If using large fennel bulb, wash and halve it first and then cut each half into 4 slices. If you’re using smaller fennels simply cut them into quarters. Peel red onion and cut it into rough chunks. Peel garlic cloves.
Arrange all the vegetables in a large roasting tin, sprinkle them with dried thyme, salt, pepper and drizzle over some olive oil. Roast in a preheated oven for approx. 25-30 minutes until veggies start to shrivel up and char slightly at the edges
Put roasted vegetables into a saucepan large enough to fit all the veggies with some room to spare for your stock. Puree the vegetables using hand blender and adding vegetable stock to loosen the mixture up until your soup is smooth and you’ve used up all the stock.
Taste and adjust seasoning if required.
Serve and enjoy!
