Ingredients

  • 3 medium sized sweet red bell peppers
  • 6 large tomatoes
  • 2 ½ cups of vegetable stock see post
  • 1 large carrot chopped (or 2 small ones)
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • 7 large fresh basil leaves or 1tbsp of dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon of black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of himalayan pink salt
  • 4 tablespoon of olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 or 180C/356F
  • Line a roasting pan with parchment paper, now arrange the chopped bell peppers and tomatoes on the pan before coating with 2 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Proceed to roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until slightly charred..
  • In a medium sized saucepan pour in the other 2tbsp of oil then begin to saute the garlic and onions until translucent on medium heat
  • Add the carrot and celery to the saucepan, cook for a further 2-3 minutes, ensure to stir and season the veggies with the pink salt and black pepper throughout the given time.
  • Pour the stock into the pan along with the roasted tomatoes and bell peppers.
  • Transfer the contents of the saucepan into a blender (or use an immersion stick) with the fresh basil leaves or dried basil, then blend until smooth.
  • Return to the pan to heat (unless using a machine like the Vitamix which heats the soup) then serve accordingly

Notes

  • Roasting the tomatoes and red peppers are key to imparting the full flavour of the veggies, albeit this may lengthen the actually cooking process (not by too much).
  • However, I do strongly suggest roasting the vegetables to experience the depth of flavour in its entirety.
  • I used my trusty homemade vegetable stock too, simply click to access the recipe.
  • This is a freezer friendly recipe. so freeze the leftovers for another day.
  • Double, triple or quadruple the batch to freeze and/or reheat at your leisure.
  • Store the soup in your refrigerator and consume within 3-4 days.
  • You are more than welcome to adjust the seasoning to taste (add more basil, black pepper or pink salt to taste)
