Recipe: Tomato, Basil, & Roasted Pepper Soup

1 chopped onion 
1 celery
¼ leek
2 large carrots
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves peeled and finely chopped
750ml pints vegetable or chicken stock
1 teaspoon tomato puree
Sprinkle of mixed herbs
2 roasted red peppers roughly chopped
Half a plant of basil leaves & stalks
Sprinkle of chili flakes
Season with salt and pepper
50g Pine nuts
80g Basil
50g Parmesan
150ml olive oil
2 garlic cloves
Pinch of salt and pepper

The secret of this recipe is roasting the peppers. When roasted de-seed and remove the skin. 

This brings out their natural sweetness which gives this soup its extra depth of flavour.

Saute the mirepoix, which is your onion, leek, celery, carrot, garlic in olive oil, 
sprinkle some salt on the mirepoix as it draws out the flavours of the vegetables, 
add chili flakes after a few minutes, simmer for about 10 minutes. If you feel this is dry just 
add a little of the stock to stop from sticking.

Then add the stock, tomatoes, mixed herbs, puree, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Stir in the roasted peppers and chopped basil leaves and stalks(most of the flavour is the stalks)

Blend all, taste and season if required. If too thick just add some water/stock 

depending on flavour as you don’t want your soup to be too salty.

  • A flawless fusion of flavors from the orient (fishcake and aromatic duck) with old school classics (gourmet burger and Guinness and beef stew). Super delicious and impeccable service. What's not to love? Will definitely return.

  • I ran a pub quiz in Murphy's last week and it was the perfect venue! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and even provided complimentary finger food on the night, a sound system and mic for the quizmaster and enabled us to display the scores on the TV screen! There was plenty of room for tons of participants, but it's nicely laid out so that no matter what number you have it would still feel full and cosy! Drinks were lovely too! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do a fundraiser!
