Chorizo and red pepper soup


  • Chop the chorizo into small pieces and fry in a non-stick pan over a medium heat until it is lightly crisped and it has released its oils.
  • Remove the chorizo from the pan, leaving the oil in the pan and fry the chopped onion for 5 minutes until soft, then add the garlic and fry for a further minute.
  • Next, add the spices along with the tomato puree and stir in to cook out the tomato puree.
  • Stir in the passata, along with the chopped red peppers, chorizo and water and bring to a simmer for a few minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and garnish with some chopped parsley.

This soup is really simple to make and is something a bit different to your usual carrot and coriander or minestrone. You can buy the roasted peppers in a jar for ease if you don’t have time to make your own. This is a low cal soup that definitely does not skimp on taste – perfect for sticking in a soup flask before heading to work.
