The one with the tomato and pepper soup

Fall has begun. I don't like saying goodbye to summer, and the only thing I like about fall, is that soupseason has started. Here's a recipe for tomato-pepper soup. Most recipes require to roast the pepper, and do the whole-cool down in a plastic bag-and peel thing. I've tried this once, and it was way too much work for me. I've experimented before with non-roasted peppers (I'm a bit of a lazy cook), and that works out fine too.


What you'll need (for four bowls):
  • 4 bell peppers
  • 4 big tomatoes
  • 1 cup full of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small onions
  • half a pack of blue cheese
  • 1 litre of vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil, no need for the good stuff, it's just for stir frying

 

What you'll need to do: 
Chop the onion, peppers and the big tomatoes in quarters, and the cherry tomatoes in half. Get a big soup pan on the heat and fry the onion softly in olive oil. Add the peppers and do some more frying. Then, add the vegetable stock and the tomatoes. Let this cook slowly, until the peppers are soft. This took about half an hour. Remove the pan from the heat and blitz the soup with a handheld mixer, and season with salt and pepper.


 
Serve the soup with the blue cheese.

  1. I love soups, especially in Fall/Winter!
    Your pepper soup looks great - I've done the long version with roasting/peeling, but I like your fast version better :)

  7. I've never done this before, as I've always been too lazy for the roasting. Good to know it works as well without doing so:D

  15. This sounds great, except I'm like the only person in the world who doesn't like blue cheese. I have some feta, though, and I bet I could sub in! If it's soup weather this weekend, I may go for it. If I do, I'll blog about it and link back to you as my inspiration!
