I am a big tomato soup fan. I’m an even bigger Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup fan. The combination of the sweet and smoky peppers and the slightly spicy fire roasted tomatoes is out of this world AMAZING. Sorry tomato soup you’ve just been upgraded.

This recipe serves two but can easily be doubled. I like to top off each bowl of soup with crumbled feta, croutons and fresh parsley. The feta cheese adds a nice tang to the soup.

Rich, comforting and full of flavor. This soup has a super silky, rich texture.

The red peppers and fire roasted tomatoes add so much flavor to this soup. The fire roasted tomatoes give the soup a hint of smokiness.

During the summer I plan to make this with fresh tomatoes and peppers that I roast myself. This would be a great way to use up extra tomatoes in the summer.

This Creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup only takes 30 minutes to prepare. Most of the ingredients you’ll already have in your pantry.

I like serving this soup with grilled cheese or a side salad to make it a full meal. Although I have been known to just have soup for dinner.

To make this soup start by sauteing your onion and garlic in olive oil. Add in the fire roasted tomatoes, red pepper and broth. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and puree in a blender. Add your heavy cream, spices and serve. Topping with feta cheese and croutons is a must!

    can you make this without the heavy cream and use something else?

    • Hi Monqiue,

      You can try using Greek yogurt to thicken this up if you are looking to save on some calories. Hope this helps!

      Thank you!

    Still learning a lot here, would an immersion blender work well? I don’t have a blender large enough to do it in one batch

    This is so good I made it twice this week! Just made a 4x batch to put in a thermos for ski lunch tomorrow. I used fresh oregano & basil. The tomato / red pepper combo is great. This is my first recipe from Chef Savvy – I will definitely be trying more. Thanks Kelley!
