This spicy red pepper soup is light on calories, creamy, sweet, and spicy. The spicy red pepper soup is also vegan-friendly and dairy-free. I meal prep this soup for a month in advance and take a batch out of the freezer every week.

How To Make Spicy Red Pepper Soup
Spicy Red Pepper Soup Step 1 – Roast Bell Peppers
The star of this dish is the red bell peppers which have to be roasted first. Clean and slice the peppers in half.
Remove the seeds and place the peppers face down in a baking pan. Roast until peppers are blackened.
Spicy Red Pepper Soup Step 2 – Cool Peppers, Remove Skin & Prep Rest of the Veggies
Once the peppers are roasted, put in a sealed container to sweat and cool down then peel off the blackened skin.
The steam will make it easy to peel the blackened skin right off.
Clean and cut up the jalapeño peppers, onions, tomatoes, carrots, and garlic.
Spicy Red Pepper Soup Step 3 – Make Soup
Heat the olive oil in a stockpot then add the jalapeño peppers, ginger, onions, tomatoes, carrots, and garlic. Sautee until soft then add the roasted bell peppers, vegetable stock, and white wine.
Bring to a simmer then reduce heat to the minimum and simmer for 30 minutes.
Spicy Red Pepper Soup Step 4 – Blend Soup
Return blended soup to stove and season with salt and smoked paprika.
I freeze my spicy red pepper soup in batches using freezer-friendly containers like these.
What Spices Go With Red Pepper Soup?
Pretty much any kind of spice goes with red pepper soup and the heat level is up to you.
I’ve used Kashmiri chill powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and white pepper and love all of them.
The mildest of these peppers for me is the white pepper while the cayenne pepper is the hottest. Kashmiri chill powder gives the soup a richer, red color too.
