Roasted Vegggie and Tomato Basil Soup

IMG_3078We all have a secret girl crush…who is mine?  Chrissy Teigen.  I mean do you blame me?  Mrs. John Legend is not only quite a looker with a hysterical personality but she is also a fellow food blogger with tons of mouth watering recipes that make you wonder how someone so fit can eat such decadent foods.  She has claimed herself the “#SOUPMASTER” as she makes her version of The Barefoot Contessa’s Roasted Tomato Basil Soup on the reg.  Trying to channel my inner Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model (yep, Chrissy is one of those too!) I put my spin on her tomato basil soup in hopes of someday being a “#SOUPMASTER” myself.
