Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Serves: 4

Safety Tip:

If you don’t have a stick or immersion blender, you can also process the cooked veggies and liquid in a blender. However, make sure blender lid is properly vented to prevent the hot liquid from exploding.


1½ lbs. Roma tomatoes, halved
2 medium red bell peppers, deseeded and quartered
1 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, cut in half lengthwise
2 medium shallots, outer skin removed and halved
4 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
2 T. fresh thyme leaves
4 c. organic chicken broth (gluten free, check labels)
½ c. full-fat coconut milk
½ c. fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.

Arrange the tomatoes, red peppers, fennel, carrots, shallots, and garlic in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Toss to combine and sprinkle veggies with fresh thyme leaves.

Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast until vegetables are tender and lightly charred, approximately 20-25 minutes.

Transfer the roasted veggies and any juices from the baking sheet to a large soup pot and add chicken broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot and and bubbly. Remove from heat.

Using an immersion blender, blend contents of the soup pot until completely smooth. Stir in the coconut milk and fresh basil, and serve immediately.

Who doesn’t love soup?! When it came time to make this recipe I knew I had to use one of my favorite kitchen gadgets in my house! My KitchenAid Immersion Blender! This stick blender comes in handy for just about anything! From mashed potatoes, soups, guacamole, and so much more this thing has really become a staple in my kitchen!! I believe it was my sister that first told me about this and now I’m so grateful and use it all the time!! If you don’t have one yet click on the picture or link and try it out!!

Having some good baking sheets in your kitchen is a must have for me. I really love the USA Baking Sheets. I use mine at least three times a week and have had them for years and they still work as if they are brand new! They bake evenly and clean up super easy! With the Americoat silicone coating I have never had anything stuck to these pans. The best part is they are made here in the USA! Click on the link and get a few for yourself!

The Silpat Baking Mat has always been one of my favorites. Nothing sticks to these mats whether its cheese, sugar, or other sticky products it will slide right off! It is safe for the freezer and high temp baking. It is very easy to clean just a little water and soap and everything comes right off! Make sure to not cut on these mats and to follow manufactures instructions. Definitely a must have for any cooks kitchen!
