How to make Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper Soup

Mmm I have really wanted to get into cooking more this year and I am trying to learn new recipes and actually cook from scratch to make fresh meals.
Soup is an easy place to start, as you can more or less turn anything into soup!
My favourite is always Tomato so i thought i'd start with Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper Soup.

4. Cook until the vegetables look lightly charred (roughly 30-40minutes but keep an eye on it)
5. Add 500ml of boiling water to a pan and add your vegetable stock
6. Add the ingredients to the pan and use a blender/hand held blender to blend all the ingredients together. I used my Morphy Richards soup maker (Ace Christmas Present) to blend all mine together whilst keeping it warm.
