3 Tbsp olive oil

1-1/2 Tbsp cider vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
1. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Fry the onions and carrots until the onions are soft.
2. Add the tomato, peppers, and ginger, and heat for a few minutes to soften.
3. Stir in the remaining ingredients, then transfer to a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Return the soup to a pan and heat gently for 5-10 minutes until hot.
4. Enjoy with some warm whole wheat bread and/or a salad for a tasty, healthy meal!
