This double soup is one of those recipes that looks absolutely amazing. Not only that but it is actually really easy to make too. I have made it a few times. When friends come over it always looks amazing and tastes so good too so very worth a try! If you prefer you could use the recipe to instead make yellow pepper soup or red pepper soup if you don’t fancy combining them for the double soup.
Soup making tips
If you enjoy soup then these tips could help you.
Use reduced or yellow sticker vegetables where you can. You won’t taste any difference but it will save money.
If you use a soup maker remember to defrost any frozen vegetables first as it works much more smoothly that way. For this double soup recipe be sure to rinse out the soup maker between the red pepper soup and yellow pepper soup for the best results.
Soup is a great snack on cold winter evenings and could be a good alternative to other comfort foods. If you always make a little extra and freeze some you could have a choice in the freezer every time you need a snack or a bit of warmth.
Soup is a great way to get extra vegetables into your diet. Why not add a mug of soup to a meal that doesn’t have vegetables in as an alternative to a side portion of vegetables for a change?
Enjoying this double soup on a diet
this is a really healthy soup so if you follow Slimming World, Weight Watchers (WW), Noom or any other weight loss plan this is a great recipe to try. It is of course important to check yourself any plan you follow and remember all nutritional information and ingredients are found in the recipe card below.
How to make this double soup on a budget
This can be an expensive soup to make but if you buy the peppers reduced or have a few that need using up in the fridge then it is a really easy meal to make and impressive too!
Freezing chopped peppers that you have leftover is a great way to then turn them into this soup.
Freezing the double soup
This soup freezes really well but obviously you need to freeze each colour separately. It is easy to reheat and then pour as per the recipe.
As with any meal you pop in the freezer don’t forget to label it, unless you fancy a game of freezer roulette!
Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!

A tasty impressive soup recipe that is easy to make and great for a date night to impress or a dinner party. It freezes well and is healthy too. What more could you want in a soup?
3 Red Peppers (deseeded and roughly chopped)
3 Yellow Peppers (deseeded and roughly chopped)
1 large onion (roughly chopped)
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
1 celery stick (chopped)
2 Pints vegetable stock
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme
Using two pans with lids, place the yellow peppers in one pan and the red in the other.
Split the remaining ingredients evenly between the two pans.
Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf from each pan and then blend each until smooth, be careful to wash the blender between so the colours remain separate!
Reheat before serving. To serve put the soups in separate jugs then hold a jug in each hand at either side of a soup bowl pour the soups simultaneously and gently into the bowl. They will stay separate making the double soup of red and yellow peppers which as you can see looks so impressive.

I made this and loved it – I think my peppers were a little bitter, so added a bit more salt. I guess usually the stock would have enough in. you’re right that it was impressive to look at – to taste, too!
I love how this looks, I don't think I've ever seen a soup like this before! It sounds really simple too so I'll definitely give it a go.
What a lovely sounding and looking recipe! Great for the upcoming colder months.
