Tomato and Capsicum Soup

It’s cold! I don’t know about the world but Delhi is COLD! 6 degrees is cold enough to freeze your brain! Getting out of the bed and cooking is a task for me these days. Who wants to leave a warm bed to make a gourmet meal ? I know I don’t, despite being addicted to cooking and baking. So I keep searching for soups and other things that can be made easily. I actually made this soup a few days back, didn’t find the time to upload the recipe. It’s quite simple and tastes ‘almost’ like Minestrone soup. Anyone who’s looking for a quick yet yummy fix for this chilly weather must try this. I actually made cornbread to go with it, will upload that recipe next!
