Ingredients

  • 4 large red bell peppers, roasted and peeled
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by roasting the red bell peppers. Place them on a baking sheet and broil for about 15 minutes, turning them occasionally until the skin is charred.
  2. Remove the peppers from the oven and place them in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. This will make it easier to peel off the skin once they cool down.
  3. While the peppers are cooling, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add chopped onions and minced garlic, and sauté until they become translucent.
  4. Peel and deseed the roasted red peppers, then chop them into smaller pieces.
  5. Add the chopped peppers to the pot with onions and garlic. Stir well and cook for a few minutes.
  6. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
  7. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender, but be sure to let the soup cool slightly before blending.
  8. Return the soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  9. Serve hot, garnished with fresh basil leaves for a delightful finish.
