With a velvety texture and a slightly smoky, slightly sweet flavor, this soup is a testament to the magic that happens when simple ingredients come together harmoniously.
- 4 large red bell peppers
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven’s broiler. Place the red bell peppers on a baking sheet and broil, turning occasionally, until the skins are charred and blistered. This should take about 10 minutes.
- Transfer the roasted peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let them sit for 15 minutes. This will make it easier to peel off the skins.
- Once the peppers have cooled, remove the skins, seeds, and stems. Chop the flesh roughly.
- In a pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
- Add the diced tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and paprika. Cook for 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
- Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
- Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth and creamy.
- Stir in the heavy cream, and let the soup simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Ladle the soup into bowls, and if desired, garnish with a drizzle of cream and a sprinkle of paprika.
