Roasted Red Pepper And Tomato Soup

This roasted red pepper and tomato soup is packed full of flavour and perfect for a cold night, or when you are not feeling too well.

When I set the challenge for this week, to make use of peppers (capsicums), I had not yet seen the Vinatics theme for the month. As soon as I saw that they were doing a vegetarian theme, and one of the dishes was a Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, I knew what I was going to make. Poor David, he had to get soup two nights in a row. I took some inspiration from PinkPolkaDot who used some smoked paprika in the soup she made. This soup is hot and spicy, and you can decide how much hot paprika to add to your dish. It was lovely the next day, warmed up for lunch. I served it two ways – one with coriander and one with cream, and I don’t think either one was a clear winner as they were both good. I would even have combined the two if there had been more coriander to hand.
