Chopped red peppers, onion, and garlic are sauteed in butter, simmered in chicken broth, pureed, strained and reheated with heavy cream to create this flavorful soup.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 red bell peppers, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 24 fluid ounces chicken broth
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the red bell pepper, onion and garlic in the saucepan and saute for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender.
Pour in the chicken broth, stirring well, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
Run the soup through a strainer and return the liquid to the saucepan over medium low heat. Stir in the heavy cream and the ground black pepper and allow to heat through, about 5 to 10 minutes.
