I liked this soup better the day after making it, and the more I eat it, the more I like it. It is very unusual. I did add salt as well as veggie bouillon powder and I think it needed both. The color is beautiful. I found red bells on sale, otherwise I would never have tried this recipe since they're usually very pricey. If you have red bells growing in your garden, definitely give this a try. And the smoked paprika is a must. If you don't have it, don't bother. You can order it on line and it's so good in so many dishes.
Jan this is sooooo good! A little bit of prep work, but definitely worth the effort! I did not change anything. A keeper in my cookbook! I was proud to serve this to my guests, it received rave reviews!!!
