    About this recipe: In this simple vegetarian soup, cubes of fried potato are simmered in a stock with paprika, chopped red peppers and chillies. For best results, keep the seeds in the chillies while you slice them - they give this red soup a little heat.

    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 6 large potatoes, cubed
    • 2 fresh red peppers, seeded and diced
    • 1 or 2 red chilli peppers, halved
    • 3 1/4 pints water
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • salt to taste
    • ground black pepper to taste

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a saucepan, heat oil and gently fry the potatoes until golden brown.
    2. Stir in red pepper, chillies, water and about 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon paprika (enough to make it go red in colour). Season with salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender.
    3. Puree until smooth or eat as a chunky soup.
