Thermomix red pepper and tomato soup

Simple, delicious, fresh and full of so much flavour, this red pepper and tomato soup is a real winner and can be eaten all year round – and when cooked in the Thermomix takes no time at all; great if you find yourself looking after children or running out of time!

Before you can buy a thermomix you are given a demo of all the things it can do. Breads, soups, sauces, steamed fish and veg, desserts, you name it, there’s a good chance the thermomix can do it without a lot of the fuss and time associated with many such dishes.
