Roasted red pepper and tomato soup

Can’t beat a tommy soup! It’s a classic for a reason…for this one, we add roasted peppers to the mix to boost the natural sweetness and it works like a treat. There are a lot of recipes that do something very similar, but this is the recipe we return to! Simple and delicious with room for a little bit of spice if you fancy it, too.

Serves: 3


  • 1kg tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • ½ red onion, cut into chunks
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 450ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp cream [dairy or dairy-free, plus extra to garnish]
  • 1 heaped tsp of sun-dried tomato paste/smoky tomato paste
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • Fresh basil, to garnish
  • Red pepper flakes, to garnish
  • For the croutons
  • 1 mini baguette
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp grated cheese [dairy or dairy-free]
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • ¼ tsp dried basil


[1] Preheat the oven to 180ºc. Place the tomatoes, red pepper, and red onion chunks in a couple of ovenproof dishes making sure they’re in one layer.

[2] Add the garlic cloves, drizzle over the olive oil and add a generous pinch of salt to each dish.

[3] Roast in the oven for 35 minutes letting the tomatoes collapse and the peppers caramelise.

[4] After 30 minutes, in a large pan, add the vegetable stock, sun-dried tomato paste and dried basil and once the vegetables in the oven have roasted, add these to the pan too.

[5] Using a hand blender or blender of choice, blend the mixture until smooth.

[6] Add the cream, and give it a good mix before leaving on a low heat whilst you make the croutons and until the soup is hot.

[7] Cut the baguette into chunks and place them onto a baking tray. Drizzle over the olive oil, garlic granules, and dried basil and use your hands to coat the bread.

[8] Sprinkle over the grated cheese and season with salt. Place in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and croutons are crunchy and golden brown.

[9] Serve the soup in bowls, drizzling with some additional cream and garnishing with fresh basil and red pepper flakes.

[10] Finish by adding the croutons on top. Enjoy!
