Late night soup makin'.

I had an urge to use up the rest of the heirloom tomatoes that I got today. They were all very ripe and I knew I had to use them up quickly. I decided to roast them for soup.

Here they are halved with garlic, basil and a generous drizzling of olive oil ready for the oven.

Forgot to get a pic of them when they came out of the oven in all their roasted glory but here is the finished soup. After roasting, I transferred it all to my blender, pureed it and pressed the mixture through a sieve over my soup pot. I then added a little dried basil, a splash of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. It's so sweet and delicious!
