Roasted Tomato and Fennel Soup

This roasted tomato and fennel soup is dairy-free and really hits the spot on a chilly day. Make a double batch as it tastes even better the following day! You can store this soup in the refrigerator for several days and it can also be frozen for future lunches or a quick dinner.

You might even be surprised to find that even the kids will enjoy this dish! I’ve paired it with a grilled cheese for the kids and they ate up every last bite.

Roasted tomato & fennel soup perfect for those cold winter days.

  3. Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast until vegetables are tender and lightly charred, approximately 20-25 minutes.
