The flavor is greatly improved IMHO if you roast the garlic first. This small step adds a layer of depth to the finished product.
YUM! i chopped fine and left un-pureed, served with a swirl of sour cream and a dash of cayenne on top, sided with garlic toast. left the boyfriend with a big happy belly! omit cream when freezing and just add later.
My husband and step daughter made this soup today and it was very good. Since neither of them can cook worth a darn and it came out so good anyway ;) I have to give this five stars for sure! This will be the only recipe we use from now on. I think it would be interesting to add some cream to it next time to see if we can get creamy roated pepper soup. Thanks!
it seems a bit too simple to be good...but it really is. My 4 and 2 year old sons both wanted more. Put the balsamic vinegar in the entire batch and throw in a bit of cayenne to make your sinus's warm...it is very good!
This was my first attempt at roasting red peppers, and I found the skins hard to remove. Maybe if I let them broil a little longer past the blister stage. But the soup was excellent! The balsamic vinegar really gives it a nice finish!
This was very good, and even with roasting my own peppers, very simple. I roasted the garlic with the peppers, which gives the garlic a creamy, sweet flavor perfect in soups. I also used water in lieu of vegetable or chicken broth. I just didn't feel it was necessary with the onion (I used a whole onion-why waste it?) and garlic being sauteed together. My soup was delicious! Thanks!
This soup was excellent. I broiled the pepper as said but steamed it further to allow the skin to peel more easily. I also used 1/2 can tomatoes and it was really good.
very good soup! I added cayenne to give it a nice bite perfect! mind you I like everything spiced up.
This was a very good soup. It had good red pepper flavor and body. I was afraid it would taste too tomato-y, but it did not. I used whole tomatoes in puree since that is what I had, and pureed the whole batch. I roasted my own peppers, but agree that you could use high quality jarred with identical results.
