Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Tip in the onions, carrot and peppers. Cook gently for 15 mins, to soften. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook for a few mins more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and 800ml of the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 mins until the veg is completely tender.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, cucumber and mint in a bowl, and season.

  3. Blitz the soup with a hand blender until smooth, using the extra stock to thin if it has become too thick. Heat through, season and spoon into bowls. Serve with a dollop of the yogurt mixture on top and a drizzle of olive oil.

Lovely Rich warming Winter soup, I made a few changes. I roasted the peppers first. I added a a little brown sugar at the end... a few thinly sliced black olives, & a small spoonful of single cream on top when serving and a few basil leaves. Sensational! P.s Okay the 1st day but Better eaten the next day when the flavours are more intense! needless to say I omitted the Cucumber yoghourt.

Thought this soup had a nice consistency, but it was fairly bland. Added some Harissa to flavour it a little, but won't be making it again.

This is a lovely, fresh tasting soup. Served with the cucumber yogurt which was lovely and some crusty bread.

I did as some others have done and roasted the peppers in chilli oil. I also made the following alterations: Only added 500ml stock (1 stock pot) Added dried chilli flakes Added chilli powder Added tsp sugar Added tomato puree All in all this soup is very nice, for a healthy (and carb free) 'fill me up'. Next time I will add another red chilli

Really nice soup. I roasted the veg in chilli oil as I had the oven on anyway and added a little chilli flakes to taste as didn't have any fresh. Also added some pinto beans and pasta after I blitzed it up, like my soup with bits in it. Don't know why I ever bought tinned soup when it is so simple to make, tastes much better and you know whats in it.
