Tomato Soup with Roasted Red Peppers and Herbs

Sometimes, super easy recipes are what people need and want.  This recipe will take you ten minutes to prepare, and will yield enough for leftovers.  Just like any tomato soup there is room for change, you can adjust the flavors to your palette.  For this recipe, there is more spice added to make each spoonful explode with flavor in your mouth.  Who wants a big bowl of Tomato Soup with Roasted Red Peppers and Herbs?

Tomato Soup with Roasted Red Peppers and Herbs

After trying the tomato soup with roasted red peppers at Trader Joe’s, I was inspired to create my own recipe.  Since I need a low sodium diet, the Trader Joe’s version was actually not too high in sodium.  However, making your own soup puts you in control of the sodium content completely.  Adding the roasted red peppers and herbs will give more flavor to this soup, and then you will only need minimal salt added.

We finally had our one serious snow/ice storm here in North Carolina.  The picture above shows our tiny amount of snow in the background.  Since I’m from Michigan, where it’s holy cats cold and full of snow, I love when we get our one snow/ice storm, because I actually miss snow (crazy, I know!) So, let’s warm everyone up in the Mid-West and East coast with this warm, cozy soup.

Here are a few other soup recipes to enjoy: Mesquite Smoked Chicken Tortilla Soup, Butternut Squash, Sausage, and Vegetable Soup, Cozy Tortellini Soup, Cozy Lemon Chicken Soup with Herbes de Provence.

  • Hotly Spiced

    The soup is very pretty; I love the way you’ve presented it. I do prefer a low-sodium tomato soup to one that’s high in sodium xx

  • I know I I will love this soup! Sounds so good. Loved reading “Holy cats cold”!… Lol

  • Some times I think I could just eat a whole jar of roasted red bells. 🙂 This soup comes pretty darn close to being able to do that. A gorgeous color!
