Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup
Member Name: Millsy83
Disadvantages: Not for those who don't like Tomatoes. Or Peppers!
During winter, I love making and eating soups - they are so good for you, and also very filling!
I have made this soup so many times and I don't use a recipe anymore, so you'll have to forgive me if the measurements are a bit out!
For the soup you will need:
6 large tomatoes halved
2 large red peppers quartered
2 onions quartered
a pinch of dried chilli flakes
a drizzle of oil
Salt and pepper to taste
chicken stock (amount can vary each time!)
A generous squirt of tomato puree
Put all of the ingredients onto a large roasted tray (I use one that has higher sides to stop the juices flowing all over the oven!).
Pop them into the oven on about 200degrees C for about 30-45 mins - you can keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn, give them a shake occasionally.
Take them out of the oven and leave to cool for a while.
Put into a food processor or blend with a stick blender until smooth (if using the food processor, you might have to add a bit of stock to loosen it a bit)
Put back into the pan (can pass through a sieve to get a smoother soup)
Add the stock until it becomes a nice consistency (some people will prefer more stock than others, I usually put about a cup in).
Add a squirt of tomato puree and season to taste.
This usually makes about 4 large bowls, but if you add more stock you can probably get a couple of extra bowls out of it. You can use chopped tomatoes or passata if you don't have fresh, or a mixture of both to make extra!
I freeze this in batches to take to work for lunch and loads of y firends have had the recipe. You can add extra chilli if you like it hotter, or cumin seeds or garam massala to get a slight curry taste. It really is a versatile dish. Perfect if you've got leftover tomatoes or peppers in the fridge that need using up.
Summary: A healthy, warming soup suitable for any time of the year.
