Serves: 4 – 6


We call this Albert's soup because my husband's work colleague, Albert, told us about it, but it has become a real favourite here. As simple as this soup sounds, it really doesn't need any enhancement! This recipe is also very easy to scale up or down.



  1. Half the tomatoes
  2. Place face up on a roasting pan along with whole pepper (and garlic if you are using any)
  3. Roast until the either the peppers or the tomatoes start becoming blackened
  4. Remove from the oven
  5. Remove the skins from the tomatoes and peppers
  6. Purée along with any juice from the roasting process and the stock
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste
  8. Heat the soup if necessary (my husband insisted on this step)
  9. Serve with a slice of romano cheese in each bowl and (optionally) some julienned basil
