Red capsicum vegetable drink


  • 1 large red capsicum
  • 200 ml tomato juice
  • 4 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
  • dash of Tabasco sauce
  • ice cubes to serve
  • paprika
  • celery leaves to garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the grill to the hottest setting.
  2. Grill the capsicum for about 10 minutes, turning often, until the skin is charred on all sides.
  3. Place the capsicum in a plastic bag and leave to stand for 15 minutes or until it is cool enough to handle.
  4. Peel off the skin, then cut the capsicum in half and discard the seeds, the white ribs of pith and the stalk.
  5. Cut the flesh into chunks.
  6. Put the capsicum, tomato juice and celery in a blender or food processor and purée until smooth.
  7. For a very smooth result, press the drink through a sieve.
  8. Stir in the Tabasco.
  9. Pour the drink into 2 large glasses and add a few ice cubes.
  10. Sprinkle the top of each with a pinch of paprika and garnish with celery leaves, if you wish.
  11. Serve immediately.
