I had bought a lot of reduced cherry tomatoes that I needed to get rid of so I was checking around the house to see what could go with it. I found some peppers in the freezer (thankful for my mum who freezes everything haha) and that’s when the soup idea came. Saw some packets of couscous in the cupboard as well so it was all coming together :’)

I first roasted the tomatoes and peppers along with onions as well until they started to char and caramelise a bit and this helped to give it some good flavour (I’d reccomend roasting some of your vegetables before blending them into soup). I also added carrots into the soup to balance out the acidity 🥕 It was all then seasoned, blended and left to cool down a bit.

I seasoned the packets of couscous I found and then mixed in some frozen peas before pouring the hot water in. Tip for couscous or similar foods, use a fork to fluff it up once cooked instead of a spoon 🍴

Plated the couscous with a mixed greens salad and on top of that I added some minced pork and chorizo which was fried together 🥗

Also just buttered and cut up some slices of bred and put them in the oven for 5/10 minutes, to go with the soup 🍞 Always wanted to do that crouton thing and season it well but it completely slipped my mind when I needed it most 🥴
