Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Prawns

Serves 4


4 red peppers

5 unpeeled garlic cloves

Rapeseed oil

1 chicken stock cube

500ml/18 fl oz water

Juice and rind of 1 lemon

7 tbsp grated Västerbottensost

Flat leaf parsley, chopped

Preheat the oven to 225°C/425°F/Gas 7.

De-seed the peppers. Arrange peppers and whole garlic cloves on a baking tray. Drizzle a little oil over and roast in the oven approx. 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

Bring water and stock cube to the boil.

Peel the peppers and garlic cloves and place in a food processor with stock and lemon juice.

Blend to a smooth soup; if necessary, add more water to improve consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
