Recipe: Roasted Fennel & Tomato Soup
We love the taste of homemade soup in our house especially during the frosty winter months! A few roasted vegetables and some excellent veggie broth go a long way to bringing warmth to the body. Since we are exploring fennel this week, I decided to roast up some fennel and Roma tomatoes. In the end, this has become one of our family's favourite soups.
