Ingredients for roasted red pepper soup

Ingredients Used

This wonderful, creamy soup made with roasted peppers is made with basic, healthy ingredients!

  • Bell peppers (red, yellow, orange): This soup comes together quickly thanks to roasted peppers in jars! But freshly roasted peppers are also good.
  • Tomatoes: Tomatoes also set a base for the soup. Besides, they also add a tangy flavor to the dish. In other words, tomatoes lift the flavors.
  • Carrots: Carrot is a tasty addition to this soup. They’re not only delicious but nutritious as well.
  • Garlic: Garlic gives the soup a richer flavor.
  • Coconut cream: Use full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream to make this dish vegan. If you want the perfect texture, use dairy cream with 20% fat.
  • Salt: I use sea salt but any natural salt is great
  • Red chili flakes: Adds a subtle amount of heat.
  • Mixed herbs: Dried herb blend that gives this soup taste as well as the aroma.
  • Oil: Any kind of oil can be used.

How To Make Roasted Pepper Soup?

  1. Roast all the peppers along with tomatoes, garlic, and carrots in the oven for about 30-35 minutes at 200.
  2. After the veggies are nice and toasted, blend them with coconut cream.
  3. You may adjust the consistency with some more cream or veggie broth, but I prefer it thick with some nice toasted bread!!

How To Serve Roasted Pepper Soup?

Roasted pepper soup is often paired with a grilled cheese sandwich. We love this tasty soup with some crispy Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls, a few slices of buttered Vegan Meatloaf Sandwich, or Spinach Pakora. Or why not try it with some Veg Kofta Curry, Vegan Teriyaki Meatballs, and a bowl of Simple Quinoa Salad Recipe to make it a vegan feast?

Make Ahead, Storage, And Reheating

  • Make Ahead: A great dish to prepare ahead of time is this simple roasted pepper soup. The tastes simply improve over time!
  • Storage: For up to a week, keep leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • Reheating: Warm the soup in a pot over medium heat while stirring from time to time. After reheating, add more salt and pepper to taste if needed.

Top Tips From The Chef

  • This soup can be made with canned tomatoes. Can be added a little bit of sugar to offset the acidity!
  • It is very recommended to roast the vegetables to give this soup a rich, deep flavor. You can omit to roast all veggies. The soup will still be excellent but will taste lighter.
  • Use a large baking sheet or roasting pan when roasting your vegetables to prevent overcrowding. You’ll have single-layered vegetables that will roast nicely this way.
  • Don’t fill the blender too full (if using one). For this recipe, I prefer to use my immersion blender, but a standard blender would also work. Just don’t put more than half of the ingredients in at a time or you’ll end up with a mess.
  • Make extra so you can store some for later. With some additional time, the flavors in this soup really blossom. Moreover, it freezes well.
  • Adjust the spice level. If your family does not enjoy spicy foods, you may skip the red pepper flakes. You could also keep adding more heat if you want more.
  • Before roasting the vegetables, chop them up. Carrots will cook more quickly if you cut them into smaller pieces. If you do some prep work before you start cooking them, it will be easy.
