as the temps drop back down below zero
 i began to crave homemade soup.  i love to make all sorts of veggie and bean soups, but i wanted something different.  i had an entire box of tomatoes and a bag of peppers in the fridge and decided a tomato soup sounded perfect.

with a little help from rachel over at little nest here is a great little recipe to eat as soup or on top of some fabulous organic whole wheat noodles.

1. cut in half about 10-15 tomatoes (any kind will work, i used roma)
2. cut and slice peppers anyway you like
3. place both tomatoes and peppers on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


1. in a small sauce pan cook 2 table spoons coconut oil, about 4 pieces garlic pressed, a little hot pepper sauce, pepper, basil, thyme, and italian seasoning to taste.
2. after garlic starts to brown transfer mixture to a crock pot and set on high.


1. after tomatoes and peppers finish roasting chop in blender or cuisinart.  i like my soup a little chunkier so i didn't blend too long.  you can make it how ever you prefer.
2. add to crock pot and cook for about an hour and a half.
3. serve with cracker or bread and add cheese if you desire.

so nice to enjoy some warmth on this day of 12 degrees below zero
