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
