Tomato & Chilli Soup Recipe

This is a simple but really tasty vegetarian soup, light enough for a hot summers day when it can be served equally as well as a cold soup (especially with pesto) but also perfect for winter with its warming chilli kick!

When we had our cafe our tomato and chilli soup was very popular and a regular on our specials board. For a fresh twist we use to make a delicious smoked cashew nut pesto which we drizzled over the top of the soup. We've included the link for our smoked pesto recipe below, but if you would prefer not to make it, simply serve the soup with a drizzle of our smoked olive oil!
