Soup or Sauce

I got this amazing new cookbook by Tosca Reno called Eat Clean. I have tried 4 recipes and have loved them all. I can't wait to make even more things from this book! This soup recipe is really good...I added about 5.5 cups of broth to make it a thick soup. I had to go out and buy a hand blender, but it was pretty cheap and really easy to use. You could also use a food processor to blend everything at the end. This is a really flavorful recipe considering how healthy it is!

4 lb plum tomatoes
2 sweet onions
2 sweet potatoes
4 thick carrots
2 full heads garlic
1/4 c plus 2 T olive oil
8 c chicken broth
3 chicken bouillon cubes
2 T dried basic
1 T dried oregano
1 t sea salt
Pinch of black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat a large flat roasting pan with 1/4 olive oil.
2. Wash tomatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Place them cut side down in the roasting pan. Peel the onions and cut into chunks. Peel carrots and cut into chunks. Wash sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Toss everything in pan. Put full head of garlic peeled among veggies. Place a sheet of parchment paper over veggies and roast for 45 minutes. Let cool.
3. After veggies have cooled, remove skins from tomatoes and sweet potatoes. Squeeze garlic clover into pan. Place contents of roasting pan into a large stock pot. Pour 4 cups of broth and bring to a boil. Add bouillon cubes, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Puree contents with a hand blender right in pan. Add basil, oregano, and pepper. Add additional 4 cups of broth to make into soup.
