If you follow my recipes then you must be aware that I love simple, uncomplicated recipes that don't need hours of my day. I prefer making quick, easy but tasty dishes.
The only step that needs time is baking the vegetables. But, that step also doesn't require you to stand in the kitchen. You can enjoy your favorite book, TV show, or a drink while the vegetables get roasted.
Once that step is complete, just put everything in a blender and cook for 4-5 minutes. That's how simple this recipe is.
To make this vegan tomato soup you need only a handful of basic ingredients:
- Red bell pepper
- Red onion
- Garlic cloves
- Olive oil
- Vegetable stock
- Dried/ fresh basil
- Dried/ fresh thyme
For garnishing, you can choose whatever you like. My favorite garnishing for every type of tomato soup is crouton. Other than that I have also used slightly toasted black seeds and chopped coriander leaves as that's my favorite herb. You can use your favorite herbs like basil, parsley, etc.
How to store?
This bell pepper and tomato soup freezes well so if you want to store it for colder days just put them in freezer-proof jars and freeze. It will be fine for 4-5 months.
Instead of putting the whole soup in one large container, it's better to put it in separate smaller jars so that you heat only the amount you need to consume.
Recipe tips & tricks
- Cut small pieces of vegetables, it will reduce the baking time.
- Depending upon how charred you want your vegetables to be, increase or decrease the baking time.
- Don't remove the charred skin, it gives a very nice smoky flavor to the soup.
- If you prefer spicy food, add chili flakes or chopped red chili pepper to the blender, while blending other vegetables.
