Happy January everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. January is always an odd month to me; it’s cold, dreary and a lot of times I am recovering from all the cooking and craziness of the previous months. This Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup is one of my favorite post holiday recipes. It is super simple, ready fast and easy on the waistline. Plus, the soup itself is vegan so it is perfect for those Meatless Mondays! Although, if you are not vegan you could always throw on some grilled cheese bites or freshly grated Parmesan for the perfect finish. From my family to yours, happy new year and I hope you enjoy this tasty soup!

How Do You Make Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup?

Ah soup, the most simple comfort food on the planet. This soup is especially easy and since the veggies are roasted and develop a ton of flavor you can skip the simmer if you wish or don’t have time. The basic steps to this soup are roast, simmer, blend and finally: EAT!

-1-

First, you will need to slice and roast your veggies. When is comes to slicing the red peppers and onion don’t worry about dicing or making the cuts even. Just chop each into large chunks an toss it on the cookie sheet, it’s all getting blended later anyway. Make sure you remove the seeds and stem from the peppers though! Next, for the grape tomatoes don’t worry about cutting them they are perfect just the way they are. Lastly, take your fresh whole peeled garlic and slightly smash it to release the flavor. I like to use the side of a knife and cutting board for this step. Once you have everything on the cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and top with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (if you want some spice in your life). Finally pop it in the oven for 20 minutes and enjoy the smells!

-2-

Second, while the veggies are in the oven roasting get the canned tomatoes going. All you need to do it pour the whole peeled tomatoes into a large pot, add the red wine vinegar and cover and let them simmer. This will help them develop flavor while the rest of the veggies are in the oven. Next, once the veggies in the oven are finished add everything to the large pot with the tomatoes and stir. If you want you can cover and simmer to develop more flavor, or you can skip it and move on. Since the veggies are roasted and the tomatoes already had some simmer time there is already lots of flavor. Therefore you can skip the simmer and save some time. Finally, use a blender set on low and blend until smooth and no chunks remain. Enjoy!

What Goes Good With Soup?

Soup is a great comforting dish that is perfect for the cool winter months. Some perfect pairs include:

  • Sandwiches: Think Grilled Cheese or Roasted Eggplant
  • Salads: My Go-To is Caesar!
  • Vegetables: Roast Some Extra Veggies like Broccoli or Brussels Sprouts for a Healthy and Tasty Side
  • Bread Bowl: Make it Your Main and Put it in a Massive Bread Bowl

How Long Does Soup Stay Good For?

When stored properly in an airtight container soup will stay good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. This makes this recipe perfect for leftovers and lunches. Also, to further extend the life of this soup you can freeze it!

Place the soup in a heavy duty freezer bag (I like to double up so there is no chance of leakage) and get all of the air out. In the freezer it will stay good for 4-6 months. Personally, I like to make a double batch of this roasted red pepper tomato soup and store half in the freezer for a simple weeknight meal. I place it in the fridge the night before to defrost. Alternatively, you could run cold water over it for 30 minutes (or until defrosted) in a large bowl if you forget to take it out the night before. Next, I either warm it up in a a pot or dump it in a crockpot and set it to low and let it simmer all day.

Happy Eating!
