Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Roasted Red pepper Soup

I hope you will forgive me for two Recipe Redo’s in a week but I think after you try this soup recipe you will t hank me.  You see,  I shared many of my favorite family recipes in the early years of my blog.  So many of them are still our family favorites.  When I started craving Roasted Red Pepper Soup this week and I went to pull it up on the blog I knew I had to re-share it with you.  The photos were sad and the recipe was too good to be buried in the Archives.

Roasted Red pepper Soup

This is one super easy soup!  It is perfect for those days when you have a  busy day and not much time to cook  You just put it all in a pot and let it cook away.  There are only 4 ingredients (other than olive oil and salt)!

The peppers, onions, salt and olive oil just cook away for 1-2 at 350 degrees – until they are nice and soft.  Just check it after an hour to see how it is doing.  I then used my immersion blender to blend it up.  If you have a Vitamix or a Blendtec you could use that too.  The soup will be hot so do not put it into a regular blender unless you let it cool first.  After blending I add in canned tomato juice – just enough to get it the consistency I like.  I usually use about half  of a 46 ounce can.

How easy is that!  It smells wonderful as it cooks away too.  It’s a pretty red soup and to dress it up just a bit I added a little drizzle of cream but it is not necessary at all.  In fact one of the great things about this creamy soup is that it is dairy free.  So don’t add the cream if you want it dairy free!

    Leighanne…do you cook this on a stove top or bake in oven? And how much olive oil…just enough to cover the bottom of the pan or to cover the peppers and onions?Or just to coat them.If you cook it on the stove do you cover the pot and do you remove skins off peppers?Or does that mean their done when they start to peel off?

    I know…I need you to draw me a picture!

    You are so cute!! I do it in the oven in my big heavy roaster pan. I put in enough olive oil to coat the peppers and onions. I don’t remove the skins – I cook until they are soft and falling off and then I just blend it all up together. You can cover the pot or not – doesn’t really matter. Yum!!!
