Home cooking & baking Roasted Tomato & Pepper Soup

Roasted Tomato & Pepper Soup

by greenrabbitdesigns

I have a glut of tomatoes at the moment they have all decided to ripen at the one time but I suppose it’s better late than never!

So with all the tomatoes and the very wet, wild and windy weather we have been having I decided it was time for soup!!!

From the outset I have to say there are no measurements to these soup ingredients I just put in what I think and I believe with soup you can get away with that.

I put my tomatoes in a dish cutting up the bigger ones so they’re all roughly the same size, then to the tomatoes add a chopped onion, a chopped pepper (any colour) and a couple of chopped cloves of garlic, pour over some olive oil, I used extra virgin and then roast in a hot oven until all the vegetables are soft.

When the roasted vegetables have cooled down put them in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the blended vegetables to warm vegetable stock with salt and ground black pepper and stir through. Now unless you are in a hurry I would at this point leave the soup to sit for a while so that the flavours develop.

When you are ready to have your soup pour in a small carton of cream and warm the soup through.

Enjoy with some wheaten bread. My wheaten bread came from my local home bakery, I could never bake bread as well as they do!

Sorry it’s all ‘a bit of this and a bit of that’ but I think that’s how the best soups are made.

I think we are definitely into soup weather now!

Have a good week and stay cosy. 🙂

Vivienne, that soup sounds delightful and so satisfying! I will have to make some up. I do believe a little of this and that is the best way too, it makes the best soups and stews. Chilly weather is here and it’s a whole new menu!!!

Happy last days of September!

Sounds scrummy, Vivienne – I love soup & yours looks just the ticket to get rid of the chill from my bones. It’s been blummin freezing here, and rather wet. I’ve been getting soaked taking and collecting Violet from school this week.
Wishing you a lovely week too. xxxx

Lucky you to have any tomatoes ours succumbed to the dreaded blight earlier in the year! Your soup looks delicious and my kind of cooking – an art rather than a science with everything measured!

This is really soup weather here too, thanks for this recipe – it looks perfect! It also answers the dilemma of what to cook tonight (always in a rush Wed evenings because of my beloved Italian class!) – we might just be feasting on this! xo Karen PS I should be studying my vocabulary but of course here I am on the internet 🙂

This looks perfectly delicious to me Vivienne! I always marvel at how our family’s desire for soup and tea drinking returns naturally as soon as autumn sneaks into town. Our all time favourite? The simplest and most deliciouis pumpkin soup. We make it with our much loved Potimarron, in French, I think in English it’s called a Uchiki kuri. It tastes of chestnuts and has a wonderfully smooth texture in soup and is absolutely delicious with gruyère cheese.

Oh that looks delicious! It feels like soup weather here today and this just makes me want to run out and get all the ingredients right away.

It looks delicious! My poor tomatoes all got blighted so I am quite jealous. Maybe next year 🙂 Bethx

Hello Vivienne, I was away for a big family wedding.

Love the bunny heads in the last post. Can’t wait to see “more” of them!!
It is cooler and soup is on our menu.
Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Happy THurs.

Lucky you having a glut of tomatoes (or rather well done you for looking after them so well!)! I’ve only had a few this year, but have a glut of courgettes.
Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe, it does look good – i hope you enjoyed it!
