Roasted Red Pepper Soup


3 red sweet peppers
1 medium onion
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage, basil, oregano, etc.)
1 cup chopped, peeled potato (approx. 1 large)
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup sour cream
Fresh basil leaves


Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Cut 3 red bell peppers (remove seeds and the inner white lining), 1 medium onion, 4 cloves of garlic coarsely and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle about 2 tsps of your favorite combination of herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, sage, basil, oregano, etc.). Drizzle about a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and place the tray in the oven.

Let the vegetables roast for about 30-40 minutes. Switch off the oven and get the tray out and let it cool for about 15 minutes.

Add roasted vegetables into a large pot with soup stock and potatoes. Bring to a boil and reduce heat allowing the soup to simmer for 15 minutes (make sure the potatoes are tender)..

Using a handheld immersion blender, blend broth mixture until nearly smooth (or divide into 3 parts and use a blender or food processor to make the mixture nearly smooth). Return to pot and heat through.

Garnish with cream or fresh basil leaves.
