Soup is lovely, couldn't get celery so made without. I also used tinned plum tomatoes. HOWEVER, I added 1 tsp of chilli as per recipe and it is wayyy too spicy! (And I love spice!). I personally will add none or only a pinch of chilli when I make again.

This is soup is excellent. I too used tinned tomatoes, I usually follow recipes to the letter but I thought I'd try tinned tomatoes instead and I also roasted a fresh chilli along with the peppers etc. It was delicious. I make a lot of soups and this soup is easily in the top three.

First time made this with a tsp of flaked chilli,and felt it overpowered the roasted red pepper. Have made again today without the chilli flakes and feel the taste is much improved. Also used a tin of tinned plum tomatoes.

A firm family favourite! Like most comments I use tin plum tomatoes but do not deviate from anything else. My kids also call this “Daddy’s get well soon soup” because as it suggests, good for a cold. No one is poorly the day after! Bizarre

Fabulous! I used tinned plum tomatoes and chilli purée instead of the suggested alternatives, but it was perfect. Will definitely make again

Just made this using tin plum tomato and used fry light rather than butter and olive oil to make it Slimming World friendly. Its absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend this recipe!

I agree this is delicious and very easy. I didn't have celery so skipped that bit and I also forgot to add any butter but it's still lovely. I doubled the stock and it still has plenty of delicious sweet flavour and a nice texture when blended.

This is a fantastic soup recipe and I signed up just so I could give it a five star rating. I only had one red and one orange pepper on hand but it still tasted wonderful. I also substituted the vegetable stock with chicken stock, again because that's all I had. I added an extra tablespoon of tomato puree because I didn't have sun-dried tomato paste. After liquidising, it was thick and creamy - without having to use actual cream! I'm not a fan of spicy food but the kick of chilli completes the flavour beautifully. Looking forward to following the exact recipe next time.

I use a 400g tin of plum tomatoes, & onion & garlic granules, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. It's very tasty.

I made this soup but was left with a side of roasted peppers. I can't helo but think they're supposed to go in the soup at some point? Did I get that wrong?

I've tried to work out calorie count per portion and got 196 per 1/4 portion. Can anyone confirm that this is about right please?

don't use chilli or only use a pinch!

Try adding the juice from a lime after blending and stir again. Even more delicious.
