  • In a food processoror blender, combine the roasted peppers, hummus, tomato paste, cayenne, smoked paprika, ground sumac (if using) and sherry vinegar. Blend until peppers are pureed and the mixture is smooth. 
  • transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and stir in two cups of vegetable stock. Heat over medium high heat for 4 - 6 minutes until the soup is hot. 
  • Ladle into bowls and garnish with canned garbanzo beans, sliced roasted red bell peppers and fresh parsley if desired. 


  1. Make up to 3  days in advance: You can make this recipe up to 3 days in advance. After pureeing the soup, combine it with the vegetable stock and store, covered in the refrigerator. Transfer to a large saucepan or soup pot and heat over medium high heat until hot. 
  2. How to Freeze this soup:Tranfer the soup to a lidded container and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight and heat as instructed above. NOTE: If the soup seems to have separated, blend in a blender or food processor and then re heat as directed above. 
  3. SERVING SUGGESTIONS: This soup is hearty enough for a main course - serve it with some crusty bread or pita and a large salad. I love serving it with this Quinoa Salad.
