Roasted Tomato & Red Pepper Soup

Now that autumn is here why not give our warming soup recipe a try – perfect for lunch with a few Dean’s Cheese Oat Nibbles & Chilli on the side.

Ingredients:
  • 600g fresh tomatoes
  • 2-3 red peppers, de-seeded
  • 1 onion, peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled & chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp demerara sugar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinega
  • 1 litre vegetable stock (approx)
  • small bunch fresh basil
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Dean's Cheese Oat Nibbles & Chilli to serve

Follow these steps

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200degC.
  • Cut the tomatoes, peppers and onion into large chunks and place on a large baking sheet, add the chopped garlic.
  • Drizzle over the olive oil and stir through, coating the vegetables evenly.
  • Season with a little salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place in the pre-heated oven to roast for 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables start to brown at the edges.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and tip the vegetables into a large soup pan - add most of the vegetable stock (reserve a little to add later if the soup is too thick), followed by the sugar and balsamic vinegar.
  • Bring to simmering point, cover the pan with a lid and leave to simmer for five minutes, then blend to a smooth consistency with a stick blender.
  • Roughly chop the basil leaves (reserving a few for garnish) and stir through.
  • Add the remaining stock if required and check the seasoning.
  • Serve the soup in warmed bowls with a few basil leaves scattered over - add some Dean's Cheese Oat Nibbles & Chilli on the side.
