Roasted Red Pepper

Roasted Red Pepper: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 10


  • 6 red bell peppers
  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 large Spanish onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch basil, stems tied together, leaves chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 garlic cloves


  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Place the red peppers under the broiler, 4 inches from the heat source, and char on all sides (or roast peppers over the flame of a gas burner). When blackened on all sides, remove from the broiler and place in a paper bag for 5 minutes to steam. Remove them from the bag, peel the charred skin, halve, seed, and chop into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.
  • Heat the butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and sweat for 4 minutes, until tender.
  • Add the thyme, bay leaves, salt, and cayenne and stir to coat the vegetables.
  • Add 1/2 of the chopped red peppers, the stock, and basil stems and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the heavy cream and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the cream is reduced by half.
  • Transfer the garlic cream to a blender, add the remaining roasted red peppers, and puree until smooth.
  • Place the puree in a pot, stir, and heat through.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the basil leaves.
  • To serve, remove the bay leaves and basil stems and ladle the soup into bowls.
