Vegan red pepper goji tomato soup

This red pepper, goji and tomato soup is packed with vitamins C, A, K and E, antioxidants and lycopene; the red-orange pigment which may help protect against certain cancers.

Ingredients

  1. 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  2. 2 red onions, finely diced
  3. 4 red peppers; chopped, these can be roasted beforehand for a smokier, sweeter flavour
  4. 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  5. 2 1/2 tsbp goji berries
  6. Optional – 1 tbsp protein powder (pea and soya both work well)
  7. 3 plump garlic cloves, minced
  8. 2 carrots, peeled and finely diced
  9. 400g tin of canned tomatoes or 400g freshly chopped tomatoes
  10. 500ml stock (I use vegetable bouillon)
  11. 1 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  12. To garnish: fresh basil, handful of goji berries, sprinkle of ground flaxseed

Method

 

  • Melt coconut oil on a big non-stick pot. Add minced garlic and chopped red onion and brown for about 7 mins.
  • Then add the diced carrot and red pepper (roasted or un-roasted) and fry for a further 7 mins.
  • Add the tomatoes (canned or fresh), chillies, goji berries, stock and tamari / soya sauce and bring to a simmer for 10-12 mins.
  • Add the protein powder if using. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • I like to blend the soup into a creamy consistency, but you can have this soup chunky if you prefer…
  • Garnish with ground flaxseed, fresh basil and a handful of goji berries.
