I was recently at one of my favorite organic grocers this past weekend, and noticed that they had a select of "mature" produce sitting on the shelf. Then I had a sudden inspiration. Why not make some tomato soup? So we grabbed a 6 pack of roma tomatoes, and a can of full fat organic coconut milk.

|Preheat oven to 400f. |
Line 2 cookie sheets with tin foil, and cover with olive oil (enough to cover the foil), or use your favorite over safe cooking spray. Trim off the ends of your tomatoes, and quarter. Place tomatoes on to one of the foil lined cooking/baking sheet , and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place into the oven for 75 minutes (or until darkened). Top rack will likely work best.
While the tomatoes are happily lounging in the oven, prepare onions and garlic. Skin the onions, and quarter. Skin and trim your garlic. Place onto the other tin foil lined cookie/baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. These take about 20-25 minutes, so plan to put them in at around the 50 minute mark of your tomato roasting.
Keep checking your veggies. This recipe will taste like dirty wet socks with burned veggies.
When all the vegetables are finished baking, time to get out your pot, ready your immersion blender. Place all your roasted veggies into the pot, along with the coconut milk, water, and spices, and blend. Blend longer for smooth and creamy, shorter for a more chunkified variation.
From here, simmer (not boil) for 20-30 minutes to let everything hang out together and party. Stir occasionally.
