  • Oil for spraying
  • 1 lb red tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 medium red bell pepper quartered
  • 1 large yellow onion quartered
  • 1 medium carrot chopped into large pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 4 fresh basil leaves finely chopped
  • Splash of balsamic vinegar
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese optional


  • Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with a little oil to prevent sticking. Add the tomatoes, red bell pepper, onion, carrot, garlic cloves to the air fryer and set for 360 degrees Fahrenheit and 25 minutes to roast.
  • Check the air fryer basket about halfway through and shake to ensure even roasting. Shake again when there is about 5 minutes left on the timer.
  • Once air fryer timer goes off, transfer vegetables to a medium stock pan and add chicken broth to stock pan. Allow mixture to come to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Once done, blend soup with immersion blender or allow to cool and use a traditional blender to blend the soup.
  • Add basil, heavy cream, splash of balsamic vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste. Top with parmesan cheese.


*NEVER add liquid to an air fryer. 
*You can peel the tomatoes and red bell pepper after removing from the basket if you choose to. Just make sure they cool a bit before you do so.
*Always allow the liquids to cool before adding to a traditional blender to avoid burns.
