Roasted tomato and red pepper soup

It's been a week since it started raining non-stop in Istanbul and I'm really not into mood to do anything, that's why I decided to warm up by making roasted vegetable soup. By roasting peppers and tomatoes, you get slightly sweet flavour and with a touch of chilli pepper, it makes a lovely rainy autumn soup.

What we need:

6 medium tomatoes
4 red peppers
1 chilli pepper
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tsp red pepper powder
1 l water or vegetable stock
1 tsp dried basil ( you can use fresh as well)
1 tsp dried thyme

For serving:

some fresh chopper parsley or basil
1 eggplant and zucchini
some lemon juice

What we have to do:

1. Wash your vegetables, remove red pepper seeds and put your tomatoes, peppers, onion, and garic on a baking sheet, sprinkle with some salt and pepper and some olive oil. Put into a hot oven for 15-20 minutes to roast.
2. Meanwhile, cut zucchinis and eggplant into small square pieces and fry with some olive oil on a pan until soft. Season with salt, pepper and some thyme.
3. When your vegetables are soft and nicely roasted, take out of the oven and let it cool for a while. Then remove pepper and tomato skins.
4. Put your roasted vegetables into a liquidizer and puree until smooth. Then transfer into a pot.
5. Add some water into your pureed vegetables and correct the seasoning, add some thyme and basil, red pepper powder, you can even add some extra chopped garlic. Bring your soup to boil.
6. To serve, pour your soup into a bowl, add a tablespoon of fried eggplant and zucchini ( for a bite) and sprinkle with some fresh parsley or basil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Enjoy while it's hot!
