  • 8 medium ripe tomatoes seeded and cut into quarters
  • 1 large sweet red pepper cut into large chunks
  • 2 oz can organic diced tomatoes including the juice

  • 1 c shredded zucchini
  • 1 c firmly packed fresh basil leaves

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Toss the sweet pepper and tomato with the ¼ cup olive oil and tsp of salt.
  3. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for about an hour.
  4. Give them a good toss a couple of times during the cooking time to get an even roast.
  5. In a large pot sauté the onions, garlic in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and a ½ tsp of sea salt for about 10 minutes until just translucent.
  6. Add in the carrots, broccoli and zucchini and sauté for a further 5-10 minutes.
  7. Add in the tinned tomatoes, roasted tomatoes and peppers and their juices, the vegetable broth, fresh basil, and sundried tomatoes and bring to the boil.
  8. Reduce to a simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the flavours have had time to infuse.
  9. Allow to cool.
  10. Then puree in batches in your high speed blender (I use a Vitamix) until smooth.
