Creamy Airfryer Red Pepper Soup with Basil (keto, dairy-free)

Creamy Airfryer Red Pepper Soup with Basil (keto, dairy-free)
Ingredients
For making the roasted red peppers:
  • 3 large red bell peppers, cored and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
For the soup:
  • 1 tsp olive oil (or cooking oil of your choice)
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Aroy-d coconut milk
  • bacon crumbles, for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Toss the chopped red peppers with the olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Roast in your airfryer for 10 minutes at 400 degrees (no need to preheat the airfryer).

  2. In a saucepan over medium high heat, heat 1 tsp of cooking oil of your choice and add in the chopped onion. Saute for about 3 minutes until translucent.

  3. Add the roasted red peppers, broth, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp salt, basil leaves and coconut milk to the saucepan.

  4. Bring the soup just up to a simmer to allow the basil leaves to begin to wilt.

  5. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth (alternatively, carefully transfer the soup to a stand blender to puree. Be careful as the soup will be very hot)

  6. Dish out the soup into bowls, garnish with bacon crumbles if desired and serve. Enjoy!
