Our warming bowl of pepper and tomato soup is perfect as the weather gets cooler. The recipe doesn't specify the bell peppers you use, so feel free to use your favourites. The soup makes a perfect budget-friendly meal to feed a family or double it to feed a crowd. Enjoy as a chunky soup or blend until smooth. A few goats cheese crumbs sprinkled over the top take it to a whole new level.
