Creamy Red Pepper Soup
No pics at the party! Argh. That sucks since we had such beautiful, diverse menu items. Here's the recipe for the soup I made:
Creamy Red Pepper Soup:
Saute in 2 T of EVOO for five minutes: 2 chopped onions, 3 chopped cloves of garlic, 2 chopped carrots, and 2 t thyme.
Add: 6 C water, 1 1/2 or 2 roasted red peppers, 1 chopped potato and 1 T sugar
(You can buy a jar(kind of expensive) or buy a couple from the olive bar at Macey's)
Bring to a boil. Simmer covered for 20 min. Blend with a hand blender or upright blender until smooth.
If desired, top with croutons and mascarpone cheese, Salt and Pepper to taste
