So hopefully we have many sunnier weeks to go still and this soup is perfect for the warm balmy days served chilled or heated if not so hot outside. This has got to be one of the easiest recipes ever too and using Give It A Kick just adds that little something extra. Give It A Kick adds some spice tastes, and containing: red and green pepper, paprika and hyssop its good for you too. Hyssop dates back to ancient times and is still used to help as an anti-viral supplement and very effective for digestive problems.
To make the croutons, place the bread in a bowl, add the oil and sprinkle with sea salt flakes and paprika. Toss everything together, transfer to a baking tray and cook at 170c for 10 min or until golden turning occasionally.
To make the soup, process all the ingredients, except the seasoning and garnishes until smooth. Heat gently in a saucepan until warm, then season to taste. To serve, spoon the warm soup into bowls, top each with a few croutons, sprinkle over a little paprika and garnish with a few rocket leaves if you like. Alternatively, do not reheat and just serve chilled.
