Roasted red pepper and smokey cherry tomato soup

Roasted red pepper and smokey cherry tomato soup

This is a quick, cheap and easy Paleo dish that takes under 40 minutes to make and can be eaten straight away, tubbed up and popped in the fridge or stored in the freezer for a later date. A great starter for a dinner party, lunch at work or even a main meal with some homemade Paleo bread. Smokey , flavoursome, packed with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and an abundance of other health benefits this soup is one of my all time favourites.

We had ours as an evening meal with homemade spinach, olive and spring onion muffins on the side, a perfect dipping accompaniment. The great thing about this soup is that there are no hidden sugars, just the natural sweetness of the cherry tomatoes and red peppers. With my diabetes I could never consider shop bought tomato soups, tinned or fresh they are always packed with so many additives and hidden sugars that would send my blood sugar sky-high unless I compensated with huge amounts of insulin.
