There’s something utterly comforting about a grilled cheese melt and homemade soup combo. For this fabulously warming hot red pepper soup, you'll blitz roasted peppers, red onion and tomatoes together, with a little cayenne for a spicy kick. Served with melty two-cheese toasties.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Preheat the oven to 240°C/ 220°C (fan)/ 475°F/ Gas 9

Chop the peppers in half, deseed (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and chop into large chunks

Peel the red onion[s] and roughly chop

Crush and peel the garlic

2 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Combine the chopped pepper, chopped onion and crushed garlic in a mixing bowl

Add 2-4 tbsp olive oil and the cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Just add a little!)

Season to taste with salt and pepper

Transfer the vegetables to a baking tray and put in the oven for 20-25 min until soft and beginning to charr

3 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

While the vegetables are roasting, boil a kettle

Slice the ciabatta rolls in half

Tip: Use a serrated knife for a cleaner cut

Set some butter near a warm place to get to room temperature for easy spreading in step 6

4 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 400ml [750ml] boiled water

Add the stock and the chopped tomatoes to a blender (or pan if using a stick blender) and set aside for step 7

5 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Drain and pat the mozzarella dry with kitchen paper (squeeze as much liquid out as you can!)

Roughly chop the mozzarella

Grate the cheddar

Combine the chopped mozzarella and grated cheddar in a bowl and season with salt and pepper

6 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Butter the middle and tops of the ciabatta, then sandwich the cheese between the two slices

Heat a large, wide based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat and once hot, add the cheese sandwiches and cover with a smaller pan

Add a heavy weight (e.g. several cans) to the top pan and cook for 2-3 min per side, checking occasionally – these are your cheese melts

7 Hot Red Pepper Soup & Cheese Melts

Remove the tray of roasted vegetables and add to the stock

Add the balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] sugar to the stock

Blitz together until smooth, then add the blitzed soup to a pan over a medium heat and cook for 3-4 min or until warmed through

Serve in bowls and season generously with salt and plenty of pepper - this is your red pepper soup
