Very good and very easy. I pulled the peppers offthe vine and I did put them on the grill and char the skin so it came off easy and then followed the recipe. I make it again and again but maybe add some fresh basil and a little more cream.

Very good soup and quite easy to make too. Followed recipe except for not adding cream, as i need it to be kept in fridge throughout the week. It was still smooth and creamy because when it was cooled i put it through the blender. I also roasted the peppers on the grill first. Great recipe.
