  • 3 Deep red peppers, halved & de-seeded.
  • 1 White onion, unpeeled & halved.
  • 4 Cloves of garlic, unpeeled.
  • 2 Sticks of celery, sliced & chopped.
  • 500g Plum tomatoes.
  • 450ml Vegetable stock.
  • 2tbsp Olive oil.
  • 2tbsp Tomato puree.
  • 1tbsp Sundried tomato paste.
  • 1tsp Flaked chilli.
  • 25g Butter.
  • Salt & coarsely ground black pepper.


    1. Pre heat oven to 200šC/gas mark 4. Place the pepper & onion halves (cut side down) along with the plum tomatoes & garlic cloves into a baking tray & drizzle with the olive oil. Bake at the top of your oven for 30 mins or until the vegetables are roasted & tender.
    2. Meanwhile melt down the butter in a large pan over a medium heat and saute the chopped celery for 4-5 mins. Not too hot, don't burn the butter.
    3. Make up the vegetable stock adding the tomato puree, sundried tomato paste & the chilli flakes. Mix well and then add to the sauteed celery. Remove from the heat.
    4. When the baked vegetables are ready remove the peel from the onion & garlic cloves roughly chop them & add them to the pan along with the plum tomtoes. Place back on to a low to medium heat & using a hand blender blend until the soup is smooth.
    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.

What a winner! Great find. I was a bit worried as the recipe does not call for deseeding and skinning the tomatoes or skinning the peppers after roasting. But it was a good texture and really delicious. I shall be coming back to this one again and again.

Really easy and very tasty. I made it almost as written and it was excellent. To those saying too much chilli, were you using chilli flakes or powder? I would agree it would be too much chilli powder but the right amount of flakes - and I don't like it very spicy, this was perfect for me.

Excellent recipe. As to the questions/tips on here... 1. Yes, gas mark 4 isn't 200 degrees. I roasted the veg at 180 degrees and the end result was fine. 2. Of course you put the peppers in the mix after roasting - it's roast red pepper soup ffs! 3. I put in far more chilli than stated. And it wasn't too hot, so I guess the amount of chilli is a personal preference.

What a fab recipe!! Ive never made homemade soup before but trying to find a red pepper & tomato soup without chilli in is like gold dust so I thought I would give this a go. So simple and so moreish, even my soup hating daughter loved it. Definitely a go to for work lunches during the colder weather.

I've made this previously as instructions, (but using less chilli flakes and a little more stock) and it was very easy to make and very tasty. This year I have a glut of home grown tomatoes and thought I'd use them in this soup- it is thick and quite tart which I'm guessing is from the type of tomato I was using. However, I think it could make a tasty base sauce for mince/ pasta dishes.

This is hands down the best tomato soup I’ve ever made or eaten (even without the celery as didn’t have any in). Go easy on the chilli flakes though.

I would drastically reduce the amount of chilli, it overpowers the taste of the soup.

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.

The oven temperature states 200C or gas 4. Gas 4 is 180C, so which should it be?

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?

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