Seven soups every Saturday: sweet bell pepper soup recipes

Sweet red pepper soup, a bowl of summer goodness from Sass & Veracity.

When sweet bell peppers arrive at the farmers' market, buy as many as you can carry in your basket. Trust me: even if you've never done it before, you are going to want to make soup. Most often I eat bell peppers raw, in salads, or grilled on skewers, but I also like to make batches of roasted red (or yellow or orange or green) peppers and store them in olive oil in the refrigerator. Then the roasted peppers, or raw ones, transform into the sweetest, smoothest, all-purpose soup base, less acidic than tomatoes and every bit as versatile.

Seven sweet bell pepper soup recipes caught my eye this week:

What a great collection of soups. I love sweet bell peppers, but I think I've only made one soup with them. Need to work on that.

Kalyn, I'm a recent discoverer of the joys of pepper soups, too. I've only made chilled soups so I'm looking forward to trying some of the hot soups on this list.

Thank you for the link! Some great recipes here, though since it is 90+ degrees right now by me, I will have to file them away for cooler weather. :)

Dara, my pleasure. And I know just what you mean about the weather -- great for chilled soup, but nothing hot this week!
