Easy and delicious Roasted Tomato Soup, just like my favorite soup from Panera!
Toss the tomatoes with ¼ cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Layer on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Roast in preheated oven for 45 minutes.
Add the canned plum tomatoes, chopped basil, thyme, and chicken stock. Add the oven roasted tomatoes, including the juices from the pan.
Bring the soup to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes, uncovered.
