Very easy recipe, I sieved the tomatoes (tinned) and left the peppers chopped small. Makes a lovely chunky soup, and the chilli makes it more interesting. I didn't use the basil or the yoghurt, but it was fine without. - 16 Sep 2012


I left out the onions. This was delicious I served this with homemade bread. As my first attempt at making my own soup it was fast easy and simple. Would recommend. - 24 Feb 2014


Love it. Just tried it but used chili oil instead of olive oil and the chili. Also added a bit of basil whilst cooking. - 14 Jul 2013
