Smoky Red Pepper & Lentil Soup | Rebel Recipes (2)

It’s cold and wet outside, but thankfully I’m all cosy sitting on the sofa and as it’s Sunday and I’ve spent the morning cooking (surely one of the nicest Sunday activities).

I’ve roasted all the slightly older veg in the fridge, made dips and this lovely warming smoky red pepper and lentil soup.

It’s a great way to use up peppers–just roast until sweet. The perfect base for a soup, to which I added red lentils as I always have a huge jar full. And then added a touch of indulgence with some creamy coconut milk.

I hope you enjoy…

Much love, Niki xxx

    I am so grateful to you and this soup, my daughter has a lot of health problems and is a very fussy eater, soup has always been a no no. But I made this and I was amazed… She loved it, so much so she often asks for it. But it has also led to her now trying other soups and enjoying them also so thank you. And obviously we love it so it’s a bonus all round.

    Xx
