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.

  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.
