    Doreen Randal's Note:

    This one doesn't use roasted capsicums, but it is delicious. I make it every year and freeze it. I have made it with red, yellow and orange capsicums, they all have a slightly different taste. All good.

      I used a combination of yellow/red/orange bell peppers. Mine turned out thinner than I like and maybe too lemony. This isn't a keeper for me, but I enjoyed trying something different, thank you!

      Phenomenal recipe! I had a combo of chopped red, orange and yellow peppers in my freezer so I thought I'd try this out. I threw in a few stalks of celery too. I just couldn't believe how much flavour it had!

      I put it all together and blended it up with my immersion blender. I ate the first bowl and then decided to strain out the little bits of pepper skin and I really preferred it that way. And I don't think I added quite as much lemon juice as was called for - just enough until I thought it tasted right.

      I went out and bought peppers again tonight since they were on sale... I'm making a triple batch tomorrow night now that I have all the peppers chopped up! Thanks for a really flavourful and relatively easy recipe! One of my new favourites!

      This was WONDERFUL. I only had 2 red peppers so I subbed 2 large carrots as well, used half the butter and sprayed the veggies down with olive oil spray instead to make it lighter. It was very nice and light, a lot lighter than I was expecting, but that was a nice surprise. I added some brown rice and black beans to it to make a simple soup meal for my preteen son. He ate the whole bowl and asked for seconds!
