cream of roasted raspberry tomato soup

There are few things I enjoy more than the taste of the first spring tomatoes. After months of blunt taste, they're a refreshing change. At this time of the year all tomatoes are delicious, but the raspberry ones are especially delectable. Once you've satisfied the tomato hunger, try using them for cooking. Raspberry tomato ketchup is truly amazing and so is this soup.
