Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato & Carrot Soup

A warming bowl of soup, perfect for those wet, and distinctly unspring-like, April days. Try this delicious and flavoursome bowl of soup, served here with Peter’s Yard crackers, topped with shavings of cheddar cheese & chilli jam.

Roasted red pepper, carrot & onion soupI use chicken stock as a base for this soup, but vegetable stock can be used as well and will taste just as good.

Ingredients (makes 4-6 bowls)

500ml stock – check out my chicken stock recipe, or use any branded stock cube you can find in the supermarket, I like Knorr.
2 large red peppers
3 large tomatoes, or a handful of cherry tomatoes
4 large carrots
2 onions
2 or 3 garlic cloves, peeled
Parsley – fresh or dried
Salt & pepper

Method

  1. Prepare your stock in a large pan, leave to cool with the lid on.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 180’C.
  3. Chop the vegetables and add them all to large roasting tray (I line mine with tin foil for easy cleaning!)
  4. Cover the vegetables with parsley (roughly chopped if fresh) and drizzle the whole tray with good quality olive oil, then season with salt & pepper.
  5. Roast the vegetables in the oven for about 40mins, until the carrots are soft.
  6. Add the vegetables to the stock and blitz with a handheld blender until smooth. I use the Kenwood Soup XL.
  7. Add a little more salt and/or pepper if required.
  8. Heat the soup right the way through on the hob and enjoy, or dish it up into tupperware portions for the freezer.
