Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup Recipe – 1 Smart Point

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

With the cold, rainy weather we’ve been having in here in SoCal lately, I have been a soup making machine! My kids LOVE soup, and it’s very helpful for me, because it fills me up, is easy to make, and is great to freeze for when I need a quick snack or meal. A recent soup I just made to go with my daughter’s favorite lunch (grilled cheese sandwiches) was this Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup. Oh Em Gee….this was SO delicious! The soup was made entire from scratch, with all whole food ingredients. It was light, brightly flavored, and wonderfully fresh. I’ve made homemade tomato soup from scratch before, but the real trick here is the roasting of the vegetables. It adds such a slightly smokey flavor, and really helps to bring out the flavor of the vegetable. And the best part? It’s just 1 Smart Point per serving! You’ve gotta give this one a try ASAP.

    I really want to make this. In the direction you mention sauce, but there is no sauce in the ingredients. What sauce and how much??
    Thank you so much

    • Wendy Zitzman says:

      Sorry…that was a typo! It was supposed to be “sauté”. I corrected it in the post. Thanks for catching that!

  3. Made this soup! Delicious! However in the directions it says to mix onions with sauce in the pan? Was there suppose to be tomato sauce in the list of ingredients? I added a small can.

    This looks delicious. In step three when you say to add onions and sauce, I don’t see any sauce on ingredients list. Am I missing something? Can’t wait to make.

  5. Did I mean to say on item #3 “………and sauté until they begin to soften”?
