Smokey Roasted Tomato and Pepper Soup

Lynn Socko


This delicious soup is made with fresh veggies only. Some are roasted, some are sauteed, but it is a wonderful nature flavor of Mother Natures sweet vegetables. To jack this up a notch, add a habanero pepper to the roasting process.

How to Make Smokey Roasted Tomato and Pepper Soup


  1. Cut tomatoes and peppers in half. Remove stems and seeds from peppers. Place all on a spray oil coated baking sheet. Also place 3 cloves of garlic with skin ON, on baking sheet. Bake at 300° for 1 hr.
  2. Meanwhile, chop/dice onion, celery, and carrots. Place in a large soup pot with about 4 tbs. of butter or olive oil. Saute until completely tender, about 30-45 min. I like to place a lid on, it speeds up the process.
  3. Once roasted veggies are cool, remove skin from tomatoes and garlic. Place tomatoes, peppers, garlic, and sauteed veggies in food process and blend well until they resemble a puree. Return to soup pot.
  4. Add 4 c. of rich chicken stock. I use home made. Also add 2 tsp. smoked paprika, 1 tsp. cracked black pepper and a pinch of salt. Let simmer for 15 min. Add more salt if necessary. At this point, mix together 1/2 c. of hot water and 1/2 c. of flour or corn flour till it becomes a paste. Add to soup mix and stir with a whisk to combine well. Add chopped cilantro once soup is to taste.
  5. Garnish with crumbled cooked bacon and grated cheese or sour cream.
