Very, Very Veggie Soup

Very, Very Roasted Veggie

 Today was a continuance of this week’s theme- YUM.  This soup was fairly easy to assemble and worth it!!  It was a quick, slow (I’ll explain this more in a minute) stew-like soup with a side of roast beef for Mario.  The roast sat in the crock pot today with a can of stewed tomatoes, beef stock, and a sprig of fresh  rosemary.
Very, Very Roasted Veggie Soup
4 small-medium yellow potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 stalks of celery, chopped
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and cut in 1/4ths
Place all ingredients on a cookie sheet in a preheated to 400 degrees oven, covered lightly with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, Italian seasonings.  I cooked mine for approximately 50 minutes with 1 stir half way through.
In the meantime, place the following ingredients in a pot on the stove:
1 1/2 boxes of organic low sodium veg broth
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can Great Northern beans
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 sprig fresh oregano
Set pot with all ingedients to low heat.  I let mine slowly simmer for the duration of the oven cook time.  Once the roasted veggies are soft and the potatoes are cooked throughout (Yes, pull one out to taste it), place 1/2 of the roasted veggies into a blender.   Turn on to puree speed and add 2 ladles of heated broth.  Make sure your blender’s bottom is attached tightly!!!  Puree until smooth.  This step is crucial to deliciousness!  And a slow cooked taste in a little time.  Once blended, stir back into pot on stove and add the whole roasted veggies.  Place lid and let the flavors marry.  I had about an hour before Mario got home so I let this sit on low until then.  About 20 minutes before he arrived, I stirred in about 1-2 oz. of shell shaped noodles and recovered with the lid.  This could have been done faster if needed.
With Mario’s meal, I placed some of the shredded beef on the bottom of the bowl and then ladled soup on top and stirred.  Mine was just soup.  Cornbread accompanied this.
