Ingredients & Variations

RED PEPPERS: Peppers are loaded with antioxidants. They also have a lot of vitamin C and A. When purchasing make sure that the skin is wrinkle-free and without bruises. To cut and deseed, simply cut around the stem and then pull it out. Most of the seeds and core will come out. Tap the rest of the seeds out. Try making these Air Fryer Roasted Peppers for easy preparation.

THE BROTH: This soup is made from vegetable broth and some heavy cream. Use a store-bought broth or a homemade version.

VARIATIONS: Don’t be shy about trying other colored peppers. The color is indicative of the stages of ripeness. Red is the ripest and green being the least. Red peppers are sweeter than green-colored peppers. Adding a few tomatoes and topping with cheese and tortillas are some other great-tasting variations.
