Roasted Tomato and Red Bell Pepper Soup
Recipe from Vegetarian Times

This vibrant soup has a satisfying, long-simmered taste, and it's loaded with cancer-combating lycopene. Roasting the tomatoes, peppers, onions and garlic intensifies their flavor. You can puree them into a rich, creamy broth or leave the consistency a little chunky, if you prefer. The recipe can be doubled easily; refrigerate or freeze half for another time.
