  • 2 cans of stewed tomatoes (no salt added)
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 5-6 leaves of fresh basil, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon of dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon of dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Dice bell pepper and saute over medium heat with olive oil for 3-4 minutes
  • Remove peppers from heat and add to a pot with all other ingredients. Cook on medium-high heat until bubbling.
  • Remove from heat and use either a regular blender or hand blender to purée soup.
  • Once desired consistancy is achieved, garnish with more pepper and red pepper flakes for heat and serve warm. Enjoy!


If you find stewed tomatoes that are pre-seasoned, skip the extra additions in the ingredient list.

    So easy and absolutely delicious! Perfect amount for one person with enough for seconds. I made homemade croutons to float on top.
