Sharing is caring!

Roasted red pepper and blistered tomato marigold soup is a delicious plant based meal with an abundance of nutrients, which takes minimal effort for a perfect weeknight meal.

Roasted red peppers, the star flavor in this recipe, are a gift to the world. I love them on sandwiches, in charcuterie, and especially in soup. All winter long we enjoy vibrant, plant rich soups because it's the most delicious way to get an abundance of nutrients with minimal effort.

Red peppers, contain more than 200 percent of your daily vitamin C intake. And both red bell peppers and tomatoes are packed with antioxidants. The combined effects of vitamin A and C create a great antioxidant capacity, and with lycopene in the mix, making this a top notch superfood soup. And marigolds contain active chemicals, making it a natural cytotoxic, hepatoprotective and spasmogenic herb! (source)

 

 

the inspiration.

We almost always have peppers and cherry tomatoes in our weekly produce basket, so I've been working on perfecting a roasted red pepper and blistered cherry tomato soup. I love adding herbs and flowers into our recipes. The neglected art of cooking with flowers is undeniably returning. Many of us eat flowers on a regular basis, and many of us didn't realize it. Broccoli, artichokes and cauliflower are all florals. I added some dried marigold petals in our simmer for their beautiful color and nutritional benefits.
