OUR FAVORITE BELL PEPPER RECIPE: TOMATO RED PEPPER SOUP
We’ve gone on record before as being absolute lovers of soup!
This red pepper and tomato soup recipe gets a savory base of flavor from vegetable broth – which is elevated by the addition of smoked paprika and fiery cayenne pepper.
A can of diced tomatoes and a couple tablespoons of tomato paste deliver brightness and umami, which contrasts the sharper and funky elements of onion and garlic.
But we’d say the star of this vegan soup is the red pepper. We’re using a large red bell pepper, cored and seeded. Red bell peppers are milder and on the sweeter side of things. Once cooked in the broth, they take on the perfect texture.
And we think you’ll love how easy it is to make this delicious rice cooker soup recipe!
