MAKE ME: roasted tomato basil soup

one of the things i love about being around my sister-in-law's family is the many benefits i get from both her parents. when it comes to her father joaquin (keenies) i enjoy taking advantage of his culinary expertise. does being colombian make you a good cook? well, he's both, and i have to say my family have happily reaped the benefits of the arab/colombian union. anyway, keenies and i decided to go for a roasted tomato basil soup and the chosen recipe was by barefoot contessa. we followed it to a t minus the thyme and butter. i know, that would be breaching all cooking rules according to ina garten; but i prefer my savory dishes sans butter. she'd probably throw an extra stick in there for good luck. as expected, the recipe turned into a huge success! it's not creamy and heavy (i hate creamy soups) and with san francisco's evening chill, it hit the spot.
