Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Put onion, garlic, capsicums and tomato in a large roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Equal Spoonful, then season with salt and pepper and toss well. Roast for 60 minutes or until vegetables are soft and slightly caramelised.

  3. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes to allow to cool slightly. Use a stick blender or food processor to puree, chunky or smooth to your liking. Season and set aside.
  4. Preheat grill to high or oven to 250°C. Slice remaining bread into 8 pieces and lightly toast under grill or in oven. Arrange goat’s cheese on toasted bread and grill until cheese is light golden.
  5. Ladle soup into serving bowls. Drizzle with extra oil, top with extra basil leaves, and season with a little black pepper. Serve with goat’s cheese bruschetta.
