What is Roasted Tomato Soup?

Roasted tomato soup is a different style of preparing the regular Spanish tomato soup. Instead of making it like cream soups, this isn't thickened with bechamel or a milk sauce, instead roasted vegetables are pureed and seasoned with the desired condiments. This soup like any other tomato soup is best accompanied with some croutons or grilled cheese toasties.
