I've just made beetroot soup - fresh organic beetroot no less (see reduced veggies thread). I threw in remnants of onion, red pepper, asparagus and 1/4 of chopped chilli. Alas, whilst it is delicious it has way too much chilli in it. Don't get me wrong I love hot stuff but I really feel that it would be even better if it wasn't burning my tongue so much! I know I let it reduce too much (forgot it was on the hob) but I'm guessing just adding water will not reduce the hotness. Any suggestions?
