Healthy Bell Pepper Soup

Healthy Bell Pepper Soup 

It doesn't take much effort to be healthy and no healthy doesn't mean one compromises on taste. Its tasty in its own way. For this soup you actually need some good quality homemade stock be it vegetarian or chicken or even fish. Its very nutritious and with 1 tsp oil its a perfect meal after a good workout. On top of everything else one who loves soups of most kinds such as myself its soul warming and comforting.

Serves 1

1 medium sized yellow bell pepper
1 medium sized red bell pepper
2 small tomatoes
3 to 4 medium sized garlic cloves
1 small sized onion
1 tsp olive oil
Salt as per taste
250ml good quality chicken stock or vegetable stock or fish stock
1/2 tsp paprika

Simply chop the bell peppers and tomatoes  , slice the onion and smash the garlic after peeling them. Now heat the oil on low flame and add the garlic and onions and cover and let it get sauteed for 50 seconds. This covering and cooking  softens the onion with that little oil. Now add the tomatoes and bell peppers and cover and cook on low heat. The juice of the tomatoes will soften the vegetables.

After 2 minutes stir and add the paprika and cook for another 2 minutes but check from time to time to make sure it doesn't burn. After the vegetables have softened add half the stock and bring to a boil and then cool and blend to a smooth consistency.

Now put the blend pepper soup in the pan with the rest of the stock and being to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes and serve.

Yes its that easy :)
