LIP LICKING TOMATO & RED PEPPER SOUP.
1 red or yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped roughly
Half an onion, roughly chopped
150mls water with ½ a low salt vegetable stock cube
190g tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons yogurt
Sprig of basil
What age foodie? 8 months and beyond.
What do I do?
Add the peppers, tomato, onion and stock to a saucepan and simmer on a low temperature for up to 20 minutes. Once soft, add the saucepan contents into a blender until smooth. Pour the contents from the blender through a sieve and press it through with a spoon, to get as much liquid soup as possible. This should leave the tough skins and some of the seeds behind (you can use the leftovers to make a tomato salsa). Reheat the soup, as required. Add two tablespoons of yogurt and stir. Serve with a sprig of fresh basil on top.
What can it be used for? As a soup by itself or as a pasta sauce and the leftovers make a great child friendly salsa.
