Roasted red pepper and carrot soup

This is one of my favourite soups. It so comforting on a cold winter night and the addition of chilli adds a warming feeling. Not only is the soup delicious but it is also very nutritious! The red pepper and carrots give the soup a gorgeous rich red colour. The best part is that these two ingredients are both FODMAP free!
