Fire Roasted Tomato Soup
This quick and easy soup is very versatile...you can keep it as is or you can jazz it up a ton of different ways. Some good variations would be to add some chopped fresh herbs before serving... parsley, basil and thyme work well. Why not stir in a spoon of pesto sauce and grate some parmesan cheese on top? Roasted garlic and chopped roasted red peppers are another nice addition, or even a simple dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of fresh chopped dill. The possibilities are endless. If you thin the soup out a bit with some extra chicken stock you can always add some fresh seasonal vegetables such as green beans, potatoes, peas and corn, You could even add some beans or mini meatballs...your kids will love it, especially if they help make it!
