Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat the vegetable oil and add the shallots. Cook the shallots until soft and translucent. Reduce the heat to medium and add the peppers and continue to cook until soft, approximately 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Add the tomatoes, paprika, thyme, tarragon, pepper, salt, bay leaf and stock. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Taste and add the brown sugar if the soup is a little acidic. Discard the bay leaf. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • I don't like chunky vegetables in my soup so I take a stick blender to it and puree. :)

    This is definitely a great tomato soup! I love the flavor that the red peppers added. My garden is in sad shape right now so no fresh herbs, which is what I would have used if I could of, instead of the dried. Loved it Janet :) More in the IMI ----------> Provencal Tomato And Red Pepper Soup
