Place tomatoes cut side down in a greased baking sheet pan.  Brush with 3 tablespoons oil.  Combine garlic, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper; sprinkle over tomatoes.  Bake uncovered at 450* for 20-25 minutes or until edges are well browned.

Cool slightly.  Place tomatoes and pan drippings in a blender.  Cover and process until blended; process 1 minute longer.

In a large saucepan, saute mushrooms and onion in 2 tablespoons oil for 5-8 minutes or until tender.  Stir in broth, tomato paste, and tomato puree from blender.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cocunut milk.
