A pony is NOT a form of transportation.

Come on, tardy giveaway enterers! Get to it, I have about another 20 things to give away once these are out the way!

In other news, my gall bladder woes continue. It’s quite dull even for me so I won’t bleat about it (plenty of that to come later, mwuhahah!) but suffice to say I am in pain and bored of not being able to do anything or eat anything fun.

But I have learned to cook a few new things to encompass my need for relatively low in fat foods. Here’s a recipe for my randomly put together but delicious soup I made today.

Roasted Balsamic Tomato and Red Pepper Soup


12 x tomatoes

2 x sweet red peppers

Balsamic vinegar

Olive oil

Dried garlic flakes

Salt and pepper

This is so easy a thumbless monkey could make it. First, quarter the tomatoes and chop up the red peppers into chunky bits.

Stick in a roasting tin and drizzle a bit of olive oil on. Drizzle balsamic vinegar on too so all the bits are coated well.

Shake on some garlic flakes or if you aren’t as lazy or pushed for time, crush some garlic cloves and wang them in (remember to take the skin off later tho or it will be minkin’.) Season with plenty of salt and pepper,

Roast in oven on about 180 degrees for an hour or so – until everything starts to go a bit gooey.

Leave to cool then stick in blender until everything is smooth.

Voila – soup! You could add a bit of creme fraiche or something to make it creamy but NOT ALLOWED for me, boo. This made enough for about 2 bowls, so a good snacky sized recipe – just increase the number of tomatoes for more and add another pepper.

We scoffed this as soon as it was made, so no photos but it was VERY tasty!

Hope you enjoy!
