Tomato Soup With Coriander And Fire Roasted Peppers

Tomato Soup With Coriander And Fire Roasted Peppers


2 Medium Fire Roasted Red Bell Peppers, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Medium Yellow Onions, peeled and diced
3 Cloves Garlic, peeled and chopped

6 (250 g) Fresh Roma Tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced

3 Tins/Cans (400g x 3) Diced/Chopped Tomatoes
3 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 ½ to 2 Bunches of Fresh Coriander, coarsely chopped

4 Cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock
1 ½ tsp Ground Cumin

1 tsp Smoked Paprika

Sea Salt

Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Limes

Sour Cream (optional)


Heat the olive oil in a large pot; add onion and garlic with a pinch of salt. Cook the mixture until soft and translucent but not brown in color. Then turn the heat on high and mix in all the tomatoes, tomato paste, peppers, coriander, cumin, and paprika. Sauté the mixture for a minute or 2, and add the chicken or vegetable stock. Then bring it to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Allow the soup mixture to cool slightly before you puree it with a handheld blender. Bring the soup back to the boil and season with some salt and pepper. Serve warm with a big squeeze of lime juice, and a dollop or sour cream, if desired.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
