Red pepper soup

9 Aug

A nice healthy dinner last night, this was a dish from the lovely Turquoise cookbook.

Chopped onions and peppers were softened in oil with dried mint. Chilli was added, plus chickpeas and a tin of tomatoes with a good litre of stock. This simmered for half an hour before bulgar wheat was added for a final 15 minutes of cooking. Just before serving fresh mint, paprika and the juice of a lemon were added.

A hearty soup with a nice tang from the lemon and something very Mediterranean about it from the mint.. Mr M liked it giving it 8 out of 10.
