Red Pepper (Capiscum) & Tomato Soup

This is one of my all-time favourite soups, not only because it carries the sentimental value of having been Thermomix demonstration soup recipe for UK Thermomix, but because I just love the way the red pepper taste blends with the tomato. And the pinch of cayenne pepper really lifts the whole soup. You can optimise the use of your Thermomix by steaming meat and vegetables in the Varoma while your soup cooks for up to 30 minutes before blending.
