Red Pepper Soup

I’ve just made an amazing Red Pepper Soup and need to share the soup love! It takes minutes and is really tasty. Fantastic for a quick evening meal and with a bit of a chilli kick very warming. Just make sure to use the long sweet peppers to get the full taste experience.

Red Pepper Soup Ingredients:

  • 3 large sweet peppers
  • 3 medium white onions, chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 750ml vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Red pesto (no nasties variety – optional)

and here is how it’s done…

Roast 3 large sweet peppers (preferably the long, thinner variety), leave to cool and peel off the skin and deseed.

Chop 3 onions and add to the pan with some olive oil, fry gently until onions soften. Then add chopped sweet potato and peppers and stir for a couple of minutes.

Add 750ml veg stock, 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon paprika to the pan and season.  I also added in a teaspoon of fussy foodie friendly red pesto.

Cook for 25 mins and when ready blitz.

Lovely Red Pepper Soup done – absolutely delicious with just a slight hint of a kick!
