Instructions

Preheat oven to 450F (425F for convection ovens), arranged diced tomatoes and pepper slices on a baking sheet, brush lightly with olive oil, roast for 30 minutes. In a blender or food processor puree tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, basil and garlic. In a large saucepan heat soup stock, add pureed vegetables, heat to a slow boil, add salt and pepper to taste, reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. * use bell pepper color of choice, I found red or orange work best to keep a deep rich color to the soup. Cook’s Note: Variation; I have made my stock for this soup from simmering a ham bone and adding finely diced cooked ham to the soup
