Roasted tomato soup

I don't like tomato soup all that much, but I've been craving it lately. This was dinner tonight.

5 tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 C chicken or vegetable stock
fresh basil
salt
pepper

Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly oil a baking pan. Quarter the tomatoes, and place them skin side down in the pan. Roast them in the oven until they're soft. When the tomatoes about ready to come out, saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients, and then puree with a hand blender. Strain if you'd like. Garnish each bowl with some more fresh basil.

This is yet another "canvas" recipe that you can season any way you want. It's easy and healthy.
