2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (plus extra for garnish)
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped (plus extra for garnish)

On a large baking sheet, toss peppers, onions, parsley and thyme in olive oil. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until vegetables is soft and caramelized. 

Remove from heat and add to a large soup pot. Add broth and season with salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer a further 20 minutes.
