  • 8 oz red bell peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 green chilli chopped
  • 1/2 pint passata sieved tomatoes
  • 1 pint vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil
  • fresh basil sprigs to garnish


  • Put the (bell) peppers in a large saucepan with the onion, garlic and chilli. Add the passata (sieved tomatoes) and vegetable stock and bring to the boil, stirring well.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until the (bell) peppers have softened. Drain, reserving the liquid and vegetables separately.
  • Sieve the vegetables by pressing through a sieve (strainer) with the back of a spoon. Alternatively, blend in a food processor until smooth.
  • Return the vegetable puree to a clean saucepan with the reserved cooking liquid. Add the basil and heat through until hot. Garnish the soup with fresh basil sprigs and serve.
  • This soup is also delicious served cold with 150 ml (1/4 pint) 1/4 cup of natural (unsweetened) yogurt swirled into it.
