    5. Season to taste & gently simmer until the soup is at a comfortable edible temperature. Do not allow the soup to boil. Serve with ciabatta bread & enjoy the moment.

Five star soup. Tip: drizzle some honey on the veg when roasting. I use plum tomatoes from a tin at times as they are cheaper and obviously only roast the other veg at the start and blend with the tinned tomatoes at the end. YUM !

I added a fair amount of cayenne pepper but still found this pretty bland. So I ate it cold the next day as a gazpacho, AMAZING! Serve with a selection of cold meats, cheese and toast, drizzle with olive oil and it's a real stunner

This was possibly the greatest thing I have ever tasted, registered for the sole purpose of rating 5* and I am normally against veg and i eat red meat nearly every night. Amazing. No I am not going overboard!

Lovely, lovely, lovely..... I used tinned tomatoes and red and yellow peppers. I also used coconut oil as another commenter had suggested. I will definitely be making this soup again. Yummy!!!

My new favourite soup! Used regular tomatoes instead of plum and had no sundried tomato paste, celery or chili flakes (whoops!) but put a spoon of chili powder and a knob of butter in with the stock instead, along with the tomato puree.
Also used coconut oil instead of olive when roasting the vegetables, tasted incredible! Would definitley reccomend trying that.

Made this delicious soup today, very easy and quick! Instead of using sundried tomato paste & puree, I just roasted some sundried tomatoes along with everything else and it turned out great :)

Made for the first time today. Very tasty! Will be serving as a soup dish and using any leftovers as a stock for homemade chicken curry. Lovely.
5 stars

Gorgeous soup, sweet and full of flavour. Followed the recipe. Felt it needed a little more stock. Husband loved it. Will make again!

Didn't have plum tomatoes and purée to hand so I used Italian chopped tomatoes with a hint of basil and 1/2 jar of Ragu sauce. Followed the recipe for everything else and the result was delicious. Definitely a keeper and a recipe that will on my rolling menu. Thanks for sharing

Super easy and full of flavour. I didn't have tomato paste so I added an extra tbsp of tomato purée. My favourite soup to date. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious Soup! Will definitely be making this again. I read some of the earlier comments and tips before making and I also added a sweet potato. I didn't have any sun-dried tomato paste, used 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes and 1/2 teaspoon of paprika. I used 3 x romano peppers as thats what I had in the fridge, 250g mixed piccolo tomatoes with plum tomatoes (only because I sometimes find tomatoes too over-powering) Blended it and then pushed it through a sieve....perfect! I loved it, my husband loved it and the workman laying our floor :)

Great soup - just before serving I fried some chopped up chorizo. Served the soup with a blob of crème fraiche and the crispy chorizo. Was gorgeous - and would make with or without the topping

Delicious soup! I added a chopped leek to the celery (as there was one in the fridge) & used paprika rather than chilli flakes. When blended, I pushed the whole lot through a sieve & served with a swirl of cream on the top. Lovely.

Fabulous recipe! I created an account just to comment that this is the best soup I've made/tasted - gorgeous fresh flavour and the perfect thick texture. Will definitely be adding this to my list of regular recipes! I used a mixture of small plum tomatoes, tiny piccolo tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes - all roasted on the vine for extra flavour - and for once I didn't feel any need to make changes after making it for the first time. 5 stars!

I made this without the celery and tomatoes and it was delicious!

Can not get enough of this soup at the moment...it's delicious. I put a little more chilli flakes in for an extra kick. Yum :-)

Fab recipe, made for the family in my new soup kettle after sledging!! In my soup kettle it took 20 mins on a smooth setting.

Have just made this as part of a calorie controlled eating plan but I had to work out the calories from scratch. Please can we have calorie content etc with every recipe please.
The recipe was amazing though.......will certainly do again.

Fabulous soup! Added large sweet potato when roasting veggies, used own home grown tomatoes instead of plum toms; just used tomato puree (didnt have any paste) and didnt put in chilli flakes (as the ones I had were very old and didnt want to spoil flavour. I am making it again today with similar ingredients, but using Romano peppers instead. Absolutely wonderful flavour and will continue to make this soup! Will get some new chilli flakes and use next time as I think it might add something to the flavour.
