This recipe is rich in vitamins and taste! I make a large batch then use the leftovers in different recipes. I think roasting the vegetable and garlic make this extra YUM! Perfect healthy comfort meal this fall and winter!
I made this during our garden’s harvest season and used a variety of tomatoes, peppers and herbs. So, feel free to adjust with whatever you have or enjoy! You can also add in a can of diced tomatoes, but it’s not as tasty as fresh roasted.
It’s surprisingly EASY! I roasted everything on a sheet pan and simply blended it into this inviting soup.
Such a great recipe to cleanse the liver—our main fat-burning organ.
