This colorful soup gets its shade from two veggies known for improving skin health. Tomatoes which are a rich source of lycopene, a skin healthy antioxidant. And did you know that cooking tomatoes actually increases the concentration of lycopene. Red peppers, on the other hand, are full with vitamin C—which is associated with better skin-aging appearance
Prep time: 5 minutes cooking time: 35- 40 minutes
- 4 plum tomatoes
- 2 red peppers
- A handful of basil leaves
- A handful of rosemary
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 tablespoon of dried thyme
- ½ cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- A juice of lemon zest
Slice the red peppers into eighths, removing the centre. Then chop the tomatoes into four or five slices. Cover the bottom of a roasting pan or baking tray in olive oil and place the tomatoes, peppers with the basil leaves, fresh rosemary, dried thyme, bay leaves, salt and a drizzle more olive oil on top. Roast at 200C for 30 minutes.
Once they vegetables have finished roasting put them into a liquidizer with lemon zest,, salt & pepper, be careful not to add the bay leaves or rosemary sticks though. As the soup blends, slowly add in the water until you reach your desired consistency. Once you have reached this pour the soup straight into bowls and serve.
