This was surprisingly complicated recipe - I've never roasted peppers before (although I've seen it done) so that was a new experience. I added in some garlic cloves in too, but should have put in a lot more as the taste is quite mild. The soup is very sweet from the peppers, and I served it with some fat-free natural yoghurt. I think this would make a good dip too - just add some halopenjos.
