READY IN: 55mins

This is from TOH. This looks so unusual. I love having soup on rainy fall evenings and this looks like one that is perfect for that. I will probably used jarred roasted red peppers and skip the first step. I bet this would freeze well too.

Wow is this great! Would recommend adding the orange juice and zest gradually to achieve a taste that appeals to you. Was a bit overpowering the first time I tried this recipe. Scaled it back and it was perfect (for us). Also added a few TBs sugar. Wanted a cream soup and adding heavy cream to the finished product was wonderful. Simmered it longer so it was reduced by half (approx 1 hr). Took it to my nursing job and had to print the recipe for several co-workers. Will be posting a picture. A really unique and TASTY soup--try it, you'll be glad you did!! THANKS FOR POSTING!
