Its time to post the recipe for the Ssshhh Cooking secretly challenge and I am glad that I am on time. I was paired with +Nalini of Nalini's Kitchen and the secret ingredient was capsicum and/or ginger. I first thought of a simple stir fry but then its been a long time since we had had soup and bread and so settled for this flavorful soup. To me any soup needs to have bread by the side or atleast in the form of croutons. Since I didn't have any bread at hand, I made some rosemary olive oil focaccia from scratch. The crusty and flavorful bread was a perfect accompaniment for the soup and we really enjoyed it for dinner.
Serve with some bread. I made some focaccia to go with the soup. A perfect combo.
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Onion - 1, small, chopped
Garlic - 1, chopped
Diced tomatoes - 1 can(440g), I used Italian style
Red Capsicum - 1
Water/Vegetable stock - 1 cup or more
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste
Italian seasoning - to taste
How I Made it:
Cut the capsicum and remove the seeds. Place cut side down on a cookie sheet and broil for 5-7 mins till the skin is deeply black. Once out the oven cover and allow to sit for 10 mins. Peel and chop the roasted capsicum. Set aside. Heat oil in a pan, add garlic and onion and cook till soft.
