  • Remove from bowl and remove skin, seeds and stems.
  • In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add carrots, celery and red onion. Cook over medium high heat until vegetables are beginning to soften. Add roasted peppers, tomatoes, basil and balsamic vinegar. Stir well to combine. Cook until tomatoes are beginning to break down.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until mixture has reached a smooth consistency.
  • Add heavy cream and mix until well combined.
  • Serve warm.
