Dukan Diet Cruise Phase Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot Soup

This recipe almost made it in to my Thanksgiving menu post but I decided to go with the Carrot and Zucchini (Courgette) soup recipe instead! This recipe is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.


Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil (new addition now allowed on the Dukan Diet)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 large sliced onion
  • 3 large sliced carrots
  • 4 cloves of peeled and diced garlic
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F, 180°C or Gas Mark 4.
  2. Place bell peppers on baking sheet and roast for about 1 hour turning occasionally.  The skin should be wrinkled and blackened all over.
  3. Put the peppers in a plastic bag and when cool rub off the skin and remove any seeds.
  4. Heat the oil in pan over medium heat
  5. Add the curry powder and bay leaf and stir 10 seconds.
  6. Then add the onion, carrots and garlic
  7. If you want to omit the oil, dry fry the onions first in a little water then add the bay leaf and curry powder before adding the carrots and garlic.
  8. Cover until onion is soft.
  9. Add 4 cups of water and the cooked peppers and bring to the boil.
  10. Reduce heat to simmer continue cooking for a further 30  minutes.
  11. Transfer the mixture to a liquidizer or use a hand blender and puree until smooth.
  12. Season to taste and serve.

    Hi Amber,

    Just checked out your Roasted Red Peppers & Carrot Soup and was wondering how many serves a day this recipe is for if on phase 2 of the diet.

      Hi Zillah

      This would make about 4 servings but you could have a little more if you liked as the only restricted item in the recipe is the carrots which are restricted to one serving a week.

      Kind regards

    I’ve just finished preparing this soup, and assume the peppers get added at some point. I’ve read and re-read the instructions, but for the life of me cannot see where it tells me to add peppers.

      Oops!!!!! I’ve now amended the instructions to add the peppers when you add the water.

      Thanks for pointing this out.

      Best wishes

      Amber:)
