Roasted Red Pepper Soup Recipe

Roasted Red Pepper Soup recipe really warms the soul

Soup is good food!  Nothing warms the soul and satisfies the need for a home cooked meal like a fresh pot of soup and my recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Crème Fraîche is a real winner.

I love soups and could live on them from the first day of September to the last day in May!  Roasted Red Pepper is hands-down my favorite. 

Soups in general are packed with vegetables making them both nutritious and economical.  Soup is what I like to call a one-pot-wonder; a dish that can be made from start to finish in one pot.  I love meals like this because clean-up is a breeze.

Roasted Red Pepper Soup recipe really satisfies the need for a home cooked meal

To make this vibrant pot of goodness, cook onions, celery and garlic in a bit of butter until they are tender.  Add red peppers that have been roasted and diced along with chicken stock, sun-dried tomatoes and a bay leaf to the pot.  Let the soup come to a boil and simmer about 10 minutes before removing the bay leaf and adding cream.  Use an immersion blender to create the amazing silky texture.

I highly recommend that you double the recipe and share a few coups with someone you love!
