Recipe Ingredients:
  • 4 large crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sugar optional, to reduce the acidity of tomatoes
  • to taste salt & black pepper
  • 1/2 large sweet onion
  • 1 ear corn husked
  • 1 sweet bell pepper red, orange, or yellow
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups Pacific Foods Organic Vegetable Broth
  • 3 drops tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with silicon baking mats or coat them with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cut the tomatoes into large chunks, keeping the seeds. Spread them in a single layer on one of the baking sheets.
  • Drizzle the balsamic vinegar and sprinkle the optional sugar over the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Dice the onion, bell pepper, and zucchini, and cut the corn off of the cob.
  • Combine the diced vegetables with the corn and spread them in a single layer on the second baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over them, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Roast the tomatoes and other vegetables in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning occasionally for even cooking.
  • When done, the tomatoes will have gently bursted and the other vegetables will have shrunk and will be slightly charred.
  • Transfer the tomatoes and their juice to a high powered blender or a food processor (you might have to work in batches depending on the size of your food processor.).
  • Add the Pacific Foods Organic Vegetable Broth Low Sodium, Worcestershire sauce, and tabasco sauce to the blender with the tomatoes and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the blended tomatoes to a large mixing bowl and stir in the other roasted vegetables.
  • Stir in the cilantro, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well, and chill before serving.
