Roasted Tomato & Pepper Soup recipe by Rachael Ray
- 2 large red field peppers or 3 large frying peppers
- 10 plum tomatoes, halved
- Non-aerosol EVOO spray
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, picked
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter or additional EVOO
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 small rib celery, chopped
- 1 small carrot, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed or sliced
- About ¼ cup sun-dried tomato paste or tomato paste
- ¼ cup red sweet vermouth or 2 tablespoons balsamic drizzle
- 2 cups tomato passata
- 10-12 cups chicken bone broth or vegetable stock
- ¼ cup carnaroli or arborio rice
- A small handful of basil
Heat broiler and roast peppers to blacken skins all over, remove to a bowl and turn heat to 450°F. Cover peppers and cool to handle, then peel, seed and chop the peppers.
Line a baking sheet with foil and parchment and arrange the tomatoes on it. Spray with EVOO, season with thyme, salt and pepper and roast 20 to 30 minutes at mid oven until they slump and brown.
Meanwhile, in a soup pot over medium heat, melt butter and add onions, celery, carrot and garlic, season with salt and pepper, then cover and sweat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add paste and stir a minute more, add vermouth or drizzle and the roasted peppers and tomatoes. Add the passata, stock and rice, then tear the basil and wilt into soup. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer until the rice is cooked through. Using a stick blender, puree the soup and adjust seasonings.
