Roasted Red Bell Pepper Soup

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Soup

There is nothing better than a hot soup on a cold winter´s day, as there is nothing more refreshing than a chilled soup on a warm summer´s day. This recipe of a roasted red bell pepper soup is a winner in more ways than one. In this version, I opt for the chilled version, since summer has just ended and the weather is still fairly warm, however, you can skip the step of adding it to the fridge to cool off, and serve it warm. This soup is loaded with layers of flavor and it´s one of those soups that just hits home. It uses simple ingredients and is super easy to make. I roasted my own red bell peppers in this recipe, but you can use store-bought jarred ones if you prefer.
