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

Delicious soup! I added a chopped leek to the celery (as there was one in the fridge) & used paprika rather than chilli flakes. When blended, I pushed the whole lot through a sieve & served with a swirl of cream on the top. Lovely.

Fabulous recipe! I created an account just to comment that this is the best soup I've made/tasted - gorgeous fresh flavour and the perfect thick texture. Will definitely be adding this to my list of regular recipes! I used a mixture of small plum tomatoes, tiny piccolo tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes - all roasted on the vine for extra flavour - and for once I didn't feel any need to make changes after making it for the first time. 5 stars!

Have just made this as part of a calorie controlled eating plan but I had to work out the calories from scratch. Please can we have calorie content etc with every recipe please. The recipe was amazing though.......will certainly do again.

Fabulous soup! Added large sweet potato when roasting veggies, used own home grown tomatoes instead of plum toms; just used tomato puree (didnt have any paste) and didnt put in chilli flakes (as the ones I had were very old and didnt want to spoil flavour. I am making it again today with similar ingredients, but using Romano peppers instead. Absolutely wonderful flavour and will continue to make this soup! Will get some new chilli flakes and use next time as I think it might add something to the flavour.

I have to say this is a very nice soup and also versatile to create other meals from, I've just used it as a sauce with chicken to serve to my very fussy step daughter, she enjoyed it very much, also used it to make a curry just by cooking some chicken in balti curry paste then using 4/5 or so ladels of this soup added some corriander to create a rather tasty balti sauce. 10 out of 10.
