Roasted Romano Pepper and Chorizo Soup

Ideal for a cold and wet UK winters day this soup is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants, and well….just so pretty!  The beautiful colour adds a ray of sunshine to an otherwise dull day making you feel that summer is around the corner whilst keeping your belly warm and full!

Please note that if you have an autoimmune condition or follow an AIP diet then I would suggest avoiding this recipe entirely.  Whilst I stick to a Paleo template that works perfectly for my family regarding taste, health, weight etc. this may not work for everyone.  When I create a recipe it is with my family in mind which I will then share for other families to enjoy.  There are a number of variations of Paleo and often ingredients I include may not be considered 100% Paleo.  Miso paste is used in this recipe, whilst I feel it is a grey area ingredient, the purists will argue that it is not Paleo because it is soy.  For those with health issues, or just wanting to avoid it, there is an alternative in the notes section, so do look out for it.

If you email me your query regarding any of my recipes, I’ll be more than happy to offer an alternative ingredient.
