Easiest Roast Vegetable Soup/Pasta Sauce EVER!!

This recipe is so easy, cheap and delicious! It can be used as a hearty soup. No fat. No carbs. You can basically eat as much of this as you like. The roasted garlic that you coax out of the skins after roasting is the secret to this soup feeling like it has more body than the ingredients would suggest. The use of the V8 Juice is acting like a rich vegetable stock.


Basically any veg you have in the fridge..

I used:
1 Red Capsicum
1 Yellow Capsicum
1 Zucchini
1 Red Onion
6-8 Mushrooms
1 small eggplant
8 Garlic Cloves

1/2 bunch Broccolini
500ml 'V8 Juice'

Grated Parmesan - this is more as a seasoning. You don't have to use this.


On a tray roast the veg and unpeeled garlic cloves[without the broccolini and basil]  WITHOUT OIL for 70 minutes at 180ÂșC.

Once cooked, remove the garlic cloves and tip the rest into a medium saucepan with the V8 Juice. Then squeeze the roasted garlic from the skins into the pan, add the broccolini [this could be peas/spinach/corn] and allow to simmer for 30min or so. Adding other vegetables at this point just gives the dish some freshness to contrast with the roasted flavours

At this point you can thin down with a little more juice for a souplike consistency or reduce a little longer and serve with pasta.

Either as a soup or with pasta it is great with some grated parmesan and cracked pepper.
