This is a family favorite during the cold winter months. It is hearty, oil-free and less salt. This recipe is good with just a slice of crusty bread on the side. It warms you from the inside out. It is so delicious and is a little spin-off of the traditional tomato soup, But more grown-up version. I have served this for lunch and dinner. It is good for both because it is so filling.
2 lbs of potatoes ( about 4 medium-sized or two large sizes diced into cubes)
2 red bell pepper ( seeded and diced into cubes)
1/2 onion (diced)
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes ( to taste. more if you like it spicier)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 can tomato paste
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
- In a large pot over medium heat, Add about 2 tbsp water to the pan. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook until slightly tender.
- Add the potatoes and the remaining ingredients and stir to combine well, making sure to melt the brown sugar.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to low and place a lid on top. Cook about 15 to 20 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent sticking and burning. Cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and allow to sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
You can serve this with crusty bread or over rice.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
