Roasted Tomato and Poblano Soup -

Roasting the tomatoes before processing them in the soup brings out their natural sweetness and bold flavours. This is a great soup to make in summer when you can buy big boxes of fresh tomatoes in the farmer’s markets for very little money. In this version of the soup I added poblano peppers for a touch of earthy heat. This soup is a real winner!
