Ingredients 

Roasted Red Peppers & Tomatoes

  • 4 roma tomatoes cut into large wedges
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 red peppers cut into slices
  • ½ lemon for juice
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning mix of basil, oregano, marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Soup ingredients

  • ½ cup dried quinoa
  • 2 cups veggie broth
  • 14 ounces full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • chives *optional as topping
  • fresh basil *optional as topping
  • toasted pine nuts *optional as topping
  • salt & pepper to taste add more if needed

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400F and prep the vegetables by chopping the tomatoes and slicing the red peppers.
  • Then, roast the vegetables. Take the chopped Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and sliced red peppers and add them to a greased baking tray. Toss with the avocado oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Then, add a lemon that is sliced in half to the baking tray so that it is face-up.
  • Roast the vegetables for 40 minutes until cooked and beginning to caramelize. Remove from the oven and let cool. While the vegetables are cooling, make your quinoa by adding ½ cup quinoa and 1 cup of your vegetable broth to a large pot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes until the quinoa is cooked through and fluffy.
  • Once the quinoa is cooked and the vegetables are slightly cooled, add the roasted tomatoes and red peppers to a pot with the canned coconut milk, the additional 1 cup of vegetable broth, tomato paste, and the juice from the roasted lemon.
  • Use an immersion blender to blend the soup ingredients for 3-5 minutes until completely mixed and the quinoa is broken down. (you can also do this in a standing mixer if you do not have an immersion blender).
  • Once blended, bring the soup to a boil, stir, and then turn down the heat to a simmer. Simmer the soup for an additional 5 minutes until it is nice and hot.
  • Remove from stove, ladle into four bowls, and add any desired toppings. For an extra tasty soup, I recommend adding chopped chives, fresh basil, and toasted pine nuts to the top of your soup. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Soup can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for 3-5 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months. To reheat microwave or cook in a pot on the stove at low heat until warmed throughout.
