Lip Licking Tomato & Red Pepper Soup


What’s needed?

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.
