Roasted Tomato SoupMy husband wanted an easy dinner so I thought how about soup and BLT’s… When I was at the grocery store roma tomatoes were on sale and it came to me.. Roasted Tomato Soup for dinner! I already had onion and 1/2 of a red bell pepper at home to create this flavorful soup. It is also a perfect paleo recipe for you to enjoy…

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 yellow onion, halved and quartered
  • 1/2 red bell peppers, cut up
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken broth
