Method Prep:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat an oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
Spread the drained tomatoes on a rimmed baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast in preheated oven until the tomatoes start to roast and shrink slightly, about 20 minutes.
Heat butter over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. Stir in the saffron, celery, carrot, onion and garlic; cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Mix in the roasted tomatoes, reserved tomato juices and chicken stock. Simmer until vegetables are very tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the curry powder, lime juice and fresh coriander.
Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth.
