Winter is coming, this, simple, healthy, tomato and red pepper soup with extra layers of smokiness from Spanish smoked paprika is a definately a winter warmer. I came across this recipe in @foodandhomesa last year and the only thing that I have really changed is that I use a Spanish smoked paprika, freshly chopped red chili and I like to drizzle some pesto on top when serving. I have been making the soup since, even through the summer, it’s just so good.
