I like serving soups to my family. I think they are easy to make and my kids and my husband think that, because they are always very yummy and usually easier to eat (haha, doesn’t have much to chew), they are very nice meals.
We love the classic combinations for soups that everyone has tried – tomatoes with basil, pea and ham, courgettes and garlic, etc.
But sometimes I want to add something else, something we love to eat and I think would go well with the overall taste of the given soup.
I am presenting today I very easy to make soup that not only doesn’t need much preparation, but is ready in no time.
Try this Tomato soup with roasted peppers and garlic:
Tomato Soup (with Peppers and Garlic)
Ingredients (about 6 servings):
1kg tomatoes or 2 tins chopped tomatoes
3-4 roasted peppers
2-3 gloves garlic
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1.5l stock (vegetable or chicken)
seasoning – salt, black pepper, parsley
Cut the tomatoes in wedges and put in a tray together with the garlic, sliced roasted peppers and olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes at 180°-200°C
If using tinned tomatoes, just place them in the tin
Purée them using the kitchen blender, add basil
Put the blended vegetables in a pot and add the stock and seasoning
I sometimes use stock cubes added to the needed amount of water, instead of stock
Heat the soup through
The soup has a very delicate taste of roasted peppers, which together with the tomatoes and garlic, makes it very yummy.
Try this soup as a main course or serve it just as an entrée.
