Recipe: Roasted sweetcorn and yellow pepper soup

Roasted Sweetcorn and Yellow Pepper Soup for The Big Broth

When the weather is chilly there is only one thing for it – Soup!  We are huge soup fans at Foodie Towers and I’m always looking for something different from the usual soups that I make.  This roasted sweetcorn and yellow pepper soup not only has a cheery yellow colour but holds well on its own for lunch or as a starter when having friends round.  It sounds posh, yet is simple to make.

I’m making this as part of The Big Broth.  The Big Broth is a competition held by Yorkshire Provender and Waitrose in partnership with Centrepoint.

The Big Broth competition will give one lucky amateur the chance to have their soup recipe produced by Yorkshire Provender. Waitrose will also stock the winning soup in shops across the UK with Yorkshire Provender donating 20p from each pot sold directly to Centrepoint. The money raised will help give vulnerable young people a safe place to stay.
