Specialty Recipe

Sweet Red Pepper Soup

Ingredients:
4 large red bell peppers, seeded and ribs removed, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup carrot, peeled and chopped
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock

Saute peppers, onions, apples, carrots, and vegetable oil, stirring frequently, for 5 to 7 minutes, until onions are translucent but not browned. Then add the stock. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 25 minutes. Puree soup in a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add red food coloring if desired. Return soup to the saucepan.

Serving Suggestions

Waist Watcher:
Serve hot or chilled as is for a really low-calorie, low-fat luncheon dish.
Luxury Starter for Special Dinners:
Add heavy cream (1 cup up to 3 cups, depending on richness desired) and serve warm or chilled. Float a spoon of sour cream or yogurt in the center and sprinkle with chopped parsley or cilantro leaves.

Sweet red peppers are a perfect foil for delicate seafood. This rendition makes an interesting flavor combination.

Note: This recipe was presented as part of a class on catering at the Montgomery County Community College. It was so good, Roberta of the Gaslight Inn incorporated it into her own cooking classes at the Inn. On rare occasion, red peppers (or you can use yellow -- but never green) are on sale. Buy a case, make the base, and freeze for future use.
