To blend: (A blender is best , but a food processor is OK if that's all you've got.) Tear the bread into small pieces and put them into the blender. Add roasted tomatoes, garlic and onions. Add 1/2 the vegetable broth and blend. Sauce will be very thick As needed, add more broth until desired consistancy is reached.
