Roasted Red Bell Pepper &Tomato Soup

ROASTED BELL PEPPER &TOMATO SOUP

Soup is a dieters dream food and for me it’s a comfort & healthy alternate from the routine.The perfect meal for chilly afternoons / dinner with simple garlic bread toast. This is a filling soup with roasted red bell pepper which adds a distinctive taste and flavour to the soup. As soon as I saw the fresh bell peppers and organic farm fresh local tomatoes I planned to prepare this soup and that’s revealed in the color of this soup. It’s really amazing and aromatic!!

Ingredients

-In a thick bottomed pan heat oil and roast bell pepper & keep aside.

-In the same pan, fry cubed onions, grated ginger, garlic , chili flakes and tomatoes. Let it cool.

-In a blender or mixer grind the roasted veggies and give it a boil for a minute to serve hot. Season it with salt and crushed pepper.

-If you want to add fresh cream then it would give a rich taste to the soup. But I normally skip that step. Without cream itself it tastes awesome.
