Roasted Red Pepper Soup

This soup is perfect for when you’re too lazy to cook anything that takes a lot of time, and you want a healthy meal. Quick and easy roasted red pepper soup; it takes 15 minutes and has tons of flavour and nutrients.

I know the list of ingredients looks long for a lazy quick-and-simple soup, but this recipe is really flexible so don’t sweat it if you don’t have every ingredient.

I ate this soup just on its own, but if you wanted it as a side dish it would go really well with a grilled cheese or panini. I garnished mine with fresh dill, but feel free to garnish with your own herbs or some shredded parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 jarred roasted red peppers, cut into thin strips
  • 2 sundried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. salsa
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Dried dill to taste
  • Chili flakes to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp. sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • Fresh dill for garnish (or shredded parmesan, but that’s optional; tastes great without it too)

Method

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; let simmer for two minutes until the onion begins to soften. Add roasted red pepper, sundried tomato, salsa, black pepper, dried dill and chili flakes. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Add vegetable stock, sriracha, lime juice and white vinegar. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn the heat off, and blend the soup until smooth with a hand-held blender. If you don’t own one, just wait until the soup cools a little and blend it in a food processor. Serve with fresh dill.
