Chop all the vegetables and pour the oil over. With a hand or spoon, ensure that the vegetables are fully coated with the oil. Cover with salt and pepper and the herbs.

Place the roast vegetables in a saucepan. Add the stock and chopped tomatoes. Bring to boil. Blitz whilst hot.
Taste and adjust seasoning as required. The soup should be of a single cream consistency. If not add more stock to thin or boil rapidly for 4-5 minutes to thicken.
