Oats and Roasted Capsicum Soup



Bright red and flavourful, this soup is ideal for diabetics. Capsicum contains vitamin A and folic acid, an antioxidant that helps to fight the free radicals that otherwise attack healthy cells and lead to complications. Oats being high in fibre helps to lower blood glucose levels. A soup of the duo, flavoured with garlic, tomatoes and spices, is a brilliant start to a meal, and is sure to raise the diners’ expectations of what awaits them in the coming courses.

Brilliant idea of adding oats and red capsicum to all time favourite tomato soup. Hints of garlic and bayleaf really lift up the flavour further.

Blended red capsicum and tomatoes make a great combo. This is a thick and filling reddish color soup with a great mouth feel. Low fat milk added to this makes the body of the soup. Very health and highly recommend it.
