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.

This is really good. I used 5 peppers (mix of red, orange and yellow) a large red onion, 6 large salad tomatoes and only one garlic clove because that's what I had. Roasted in for longer than I meant to (4o mins), as was interrupted by a phone call but I think this gave a good deep flavour. Didn't have celery so just added the roasted stuff to a litre of veg stock enriched with a good squeeze of tomato puree and a teaspoon of garlic and chilli flakes. Blended the lot and it was lovely and somehow quite creamy.

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
