It’s officially a soup weather! Literally, nothing warm up your body and soul more than a huge bowl of piping hot soup. Tip… spicy soups will kick-start your metabolism, help with digestion and will warm you up much faster. Roasting the hot pepper as well brings tons of flavour and in general, I think roasting is a much better way to prepare vegetables then simply steaming them. Fewer nutrients are lost this way and caramelisation that will happen boosts up the flavour!
Adding hazelnuts here gives the soup a great body and a silky texture. Overall this one is so easy to prepare, just roughly chop everything and pop in the oven:) And it’s very effective to serve, using an edible bowl saves on washing up as well if you are planning to eat it alone:) I love adding crunchy toppings to my creamy soups as a texture element. This time I topped it with toasted sesame and pumpkin seeds, roasted hazelnuts, more chilli flakes and fresh coriander leaves! Coconut yoghurt is an excellent topping as well because it will clean your palate after those fiery chilli flakes.
