I can see how the color might turn you off but trust me, this is a huge winner of a soup and was enjoyed by several visitors to the Dr C-N household for many days!

Handful of grape/cherry/plum tomatoes
Handful of basil leaves
2 cups unsalted vegetable stock

1 green bell pepper (because it was cheap)
1 long seedless cucumber
1/2 red onion
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
4 ribs celery
1 tbsp minced garlic.

Lemon juice
Italian Seasoning
Lots of black pepper *LOTS*
Feel free to add hot sauce, garlic powder, whatever else you like.


Give all the hard veggies (celery, pepper, cucs, onion) a thin or fine chop.

Chop the tomatoes and basil roughly.

Toss everything including the roasted tomatoes (DO NOT DRAIN) into a big pot and blend away using an immersion blender (or a food processor in batches).

What a great soup! And best of all: no cooking! Just chop and blend! =)
