Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque Recipe

Jump to recipe

Oh my, let me just tell you how much I am loving my new cookbook, Everyday Detox by Megan Gilmore! This cookbook is full – I mean jam-packed full of some of the tastiest and healthiest recipes that I have ever come across. Last night I made Megan’s Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque. It was divine!

Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque

It wasn’t the quickest recipe to make, but it was easy. Because the vegetables need to simmer for 30 − 45 minutes it is not a fast to throw together diner. But like I said, it was easy to put together, and I think the recipe is pretty much fail-proof. Megan’s recipe calls for homemade almond milk. That is something that I do not have – in fact I have never made my own almond milk. My daughter Alyssa has, she says it is easy, but honestly, right now- I simply do not have the desire. I substituted the cup of almond milk with a cup of water. Megan suggested not using store-bought almond milk as it changes the flavor in a not pleasant way. The water worked fine.

Fall is coming quickly and this bisque is a perfect soup to add to your recipe collection!

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 (28 oz.) can organic chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup water

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk (I used one cup water)


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium heat and sauté the carrots and onion until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir often. Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque Recipe
  2. Add the tomatoes, water, garlic, basil, salt, and bell pepper and bring the soup to a boil. Lower the heat and cover, simmering for 30 to 45 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque Recipe
  3. Transfer the soup in batches to a high-speed blender and blend until very smooth. When blending hot liquids, be sure to remove the plastic cap from the blender lid and cover the opening with a clean dish towel to allow steam to escape and prevent burns.Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque RecipeRed Bell Pepper & Tomato Bisque Recipe
