Spicy Pepper and Tomato Soup (with cucumber yogurt)

I still can’t get over how great our Mexican Tomato and Vermicelli soup was, so we decided to make more tomato soup!

This time, it’s a little bit thicker but still oh so good! It’s even better if you scoop massive amounts of the cucumber yogurt in the soup as it balances out the spicy!!

Ingredients: (serves 2 with leftover for 1 the next day)

2 tbsp olive oil , plus extra to serve
onions , finely sliced
1 carrot , finely chopped
red peppers , roughly chopped
garlic cloves , sliced
1 red chilli , sliced
400g can chopped tomatoes
850ml-1 litre/1½-1¾pts vegetable stock or bouillon
4 tbsp Greek-style yogurt
½ cucumber , halved, deseeded, coarsely grated and squeezed of excess water


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Tip in the onions, carrot and peppers. Cook gently for 15 mins, to soften. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook for a few mins more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and 800ml of the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 mins until the veg is completely tender.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, cucumber and mint in a bowl, and season.
  3. Blitz the soup with a hand blender until smooth, using the extra stock to thin if it has become too thick. Heat through, season and spoon into bowls. Serve with a dollop of the yogurt mixture on top and a drizzle of olive oil.
