How to make roast red pepper soup?

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper. While the oven heats up, prepare the vegetables. To do this, wash and chop the peppers, tomatoes, onion and garlic and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle in the spices and mix. Then place the vegetables in the oven to roast. Cook the vegetables in the oven for 20-25 minutes. When the vegetables are soft and lightly browned on top, remove the plate from the oven and place the roasted vegetables in a food processor or blender.
