Made the soup for dinner tonight and used several pieces advice from others...added some more garlic, pepper, and oregano. I also followed the directions someone else gave of halving and seeding the peppers prior to roasting. This eliminated the need for flipping and turning the peppers. Husband loved it also!
This recipe lacks a bit of flavor but I dressed it up to make it work. I doubled the garlic added basil and one 15-oz can of tomato sauce. It was pretty good after that. Note: When roasting the bell peppers cut them in half first stem and seed them then lay them open face down on the baking tray. That way you don't have to use tongs to flip them in your oven.
I have been having great fun with this recipe and my family (including 2 year old triplets) doesn't mind at all - they love it! The first time I made it I used a 16oz can of roasted peppers. I added some things I had in the house like a half empty bag of three cheese tortellini and a bunch of fresh asparagus spears (it looked very pretty). The second time I roasted my own peppers and it was really good but everyone commented that the difference between the fresh and the canned was so subtle I can get away with not soing the extra work. This time I only added fresh mini ravioli. My sisters commented that it didn't really need any additions and I agree. I am making it tonight for a church dinner and I will leave it plain, but I will bring along some crumbled Feta - that sounds so good! Thanks for a healthy, delicious and versatile recipe!
This was really good simple and easy to make too! My peppers may have been small I'd like a little more of the pepper taste so I may add an extra pepper. I might even play around and try just a little tomato in it. Its really good as is though I sprinkled some baked tortilla strips on top. Yum Yum Yum! OK I had to revise my review. With my changes....I prefer using great northern beans (not sure why they made a difference to me?) and I used 4 roasted peppers and put in a small can of whole tomatoes. Perfection! I also use veggie boullion cube instead of chicken broth as I am a vegetarian. I love this soup!
I used a 12 oz. jar of drained sweet roasted red peppers. The soup looked like an elegant soup you'd have at a restaurant. It was surprising & a nice change to have a creamed soup that was thickened with beans instead of cream. I tried some with a dollop of sour cream on top and some with some with goat cheese (I'd gotten some in a gift basket) on top, as suggested in the recipe, & preferred it without the additions. It does need some salt & pepper while cooking or at the table.
This serves six only if you want a little cup of soup. If you want a big bowl you need to double the recipe to serve six. I cut back on the garlic a bit used Great Northern beans and garnished with chopped cooked bacon. Great texture great flavor. Everyone loved it!
