Red Pepper Soup
This is a great recipe, red pepper soup is quick, easy and has a limited number of ingredients. Change up the heavy cream with yogurt or even add in some butternut squash as a flavor enhancement. Also, if you like hearty/chunky soup, do not strain, just blend and serve.
2 tablespoons butter
4 red bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
24 fluid ounces chicken broth/stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the red bell pepper, onion and garlic in the saucepan and saute for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender.
Pour in the chicken broth, stirring well, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. This recipe is much easier if you puree the soup using an immersion blender right in the soup pot
Run the soup through a strainer and return the liquid to the saucepan over medium low heat. Stir in the heavy cream and the ground black pepper and allow to heat through, about 5 to 10 minutes.
You can serve with chopped chives and sour cream on the side
As a shakeup change, roast the peppers and onion in the oven for 30 minutes before starting the soup.
