Roasted Tomato Pepper Bisque
- 5 large tomatoes quartered
- 1 medium red bell pepper seeded and quartered
- 2 large yellow onions quartered
- 4 cloves garlic peeled
- 2 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or homemade broth, or water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (or homemade)
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- sea salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the tomatoes, onions and peppers onto it. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
- Bake in the oven for about 5 minutes and then add the garlic cloves. Continue to roast the vegetables until they soften and start to caramelize, about 15 minutes, stirring about halfway through. Check to see if they're browning.
- Put the vegetables into a large soup pot and add the vegetable broth. Use an immersion blender to process until smooth and then heat through. Or if you'd like to use a blender, add the tomatoes to it after roasting with enough broth to blend. Then add the blended tomatoes to the pot with the rest of the broth and heat through.
- Add 1/2 cup of unsweetened non-dairy milk and stir to combine. Taste and add up to 1/2 cup more, if needed. Season with salt, pepper, and more paprika.
This dish was extremely easy to prepare and make. Very tasty perfect amount of spice. I didn’t have vegetable stock so I used water and it still came out delicious. Next time I’ll try it with the vegetable stock.
Thanks for the feedback! ???? I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I sometimes like to only use tomatoes, but it’s good either way.
After roasting the vegetables and putting them in the pot with the liquids, do you simmer them, or just blend with a stick blender?
Thanks for your question, Rina. It did need some clarification. You can blend with the blender stick right in the pot and then reheat or, if you prefer, transfer the tomatoes from the roasting pan to a blender with a little broth and blend there before adding to the soup pot, with the remainder of broth, and heating through. I’ve clarified this on the recipe.
