  1. Place peppers on grill pan, cut side down. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and garlic. Grill or roast on high heat until the skin blackens, about 20-30 minutes. Cover with a tea towel or plastic bag until cool. Once cool, peel off charred skin.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large stock pot. Saute onions until soft, about 5 minutes, then add ginger. Stir in carrots and tomatoes.
  3. After 10 minutes, add Tom Yum paste and stock. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Add peppers, garlic and any juices from grill pan to stock pot. When cooled a little, liquidise everything to a thick puree.
  5. Add coconut cream. Adjust seasonings to taste. Sprinkle with fresh coriander, if desired.


All ingredients can be adjusted to your own taste.
