Creamy Red Pepper Soup Recipe-

Ingredients:

5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

2 onions- chopped

2 carrots- peeled and chopped

3 garlic cloves- minced

1 teaspoon of fresh thyme

1 teaspoon of fresh oregano

6 cups of chicken broth

1 bag of mini roasted bell peppers- baked in the oven

1 russet potato- peeled and diced

1/2 cup of white wine

1 tablespoon of honey

14 baguette slices- cut them into 1/2 inch cubes

* Crumbled feta cheese- serve on the top

salt and pepper for taste

Directions:

Bake the prepared bell peppers on a baking sheet, and drizzle olive oil over them. Bake in about 400 degree or 200 Celcius. Bake until the peppers are softened. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy pot over medium heat. Add in the onions, carrots, garlic, thyme, and oregano and saute until the onions are translucent.

Add in the broth, bell peppers, potato, wine, and honey. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Then decrease the heat to low and cover simmer until the potatoes are very tender. (About 25 minutes or so.) Let the soup cool slightly.

Next take a hand blender and puree the soup in a big pot. Then take the soup and add it into a blender, and blend until ingredients are combined. Season the soup with salt and ground pepper.

Last heat the rest of the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add in the bread cubes and saute until they are golden brown.

Ladle the soup into the bowls and add fresh feta cheese to the top. Top it off with the croutons and serve.

This soup is great for fall coming up!!

  1. I’m not at all familiar with a soup like this but it sure does sound good. I don’t know If I can find peppers of any size roasted and in bags. I would have to roast them myself — but that’s OK. I think this soup is definitely worth it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
