Watch the video for this recipe:

Though I am not the biggest fan of creamy soups this roasted tomato and red pepper soup totally conquered me and my family lately. It is a creamy comforting summer soup, full of flavor, served with cheese toasts that makes it really irresistible.

 

Roasting the vegetables enhances their flavor, bringing the best out of them. It is one of the best recipes you can try for tomato season to enjoy their sweet summery flavor. The recipe is very easy, and makes a great idea for appetizer or simply as a light dinner. Enjoy!

This is absolutely fantastic, great for pre-autumn season. I'm not big fan of this kind of toast, so instead I've made regular croutons, and spreaded grated cheese on top of soup - it also worked really well :)
