Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

I made this delicious soup yesterday for lunch and it worked out quite well considering it was my first soup making attempt.

*For a Slimming World friendly recipe I swapped the sugar for sweetener and vegetable oil for low calorie spray. To make it more filling I cooked 2 cups of pasta and added it to the blended soup. Makes a delicious filling lunch and it's all syn free*

Ingredients: 

2 red peppers
2 large tomatoes (or a tin in my case as I had no tomatoes in the fridge)
1 onion
1 pint of vegetable stock
2 tblsp of vegetable oil
1 tsp of mixed herbs
2 tsp of sugar
4-5 tsp of tomato puree
1 tblsp of lemon juice



Method:


  • De seed the peppers and chop along with the onions. 
  • Heat the oil in a sauce pan and add vegetables once its hot.
  • Cook until onions are golden brown and peppers are soft.
  • Add in the can of tomatoes and mix well
  • Add the stock along with the lemon juice, herbs, tomato puree and sugar
  • Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for approx 15 mins, the longer the better though.
  • When ready, blend the soup and serve.

We had ours with some bread and butter, perfect for the Wintery afternoon that was yesterday.
