Bell pepper and sun-dried tomato soup is very healthy

Like other vegetables, sweet peppers are high in fiber and nutrients, and low in calories. Red peppers have more vitamin C than green peppers. Tomatoes are also very healthy. They contain a substance called ‘lycopene’, an antioxidant that gives them their natural red color. Antioxidants are commonly considered to protect our cells and tissue from harmful substances.
