Roasted Red Pepper - Carrot Soup

I tried this soup from a recent issue of Vegetarian Times and found it quite delicious, kinda like the roasted red pepper tomato soup from Trader Joes. BTW, any leftovers would make a good base for a pasta sauce as I posted here.

Heres how I made it:
  • Roast one large red bell pepper at 350F for 1 hour, turning occassionally until the skin is wrinkled and blackened all over.
  • Place it in a bowl, cover with a plastic wrap and keep for 10 mins to steam.
  • Then rub off the skin and seeds.
  • In the meanwhile, heat some olive oil. Saute 1/4 cup onions until softened and one or two cloves minced garlic and saute another 2 mins.
  • Add diced carrots (abt 1/2 cup), 1 bayleaf, salt, pepper, cumin pwd, coriander pwd and curry pwd.
  • Add 1 cup broth, cover and simmer for 1/2 hour till carrots soften.
  • Cool slightly and blend with the roasted pepper.
  • Pour back into the pot and heat thru. Check and adjust seasonings. Squeeze in some lemon juice and garnish with finely chopped parsley.
This Roasted Red Pepper - Carrot Soup goes to the Show Me Your Soup event at Divya's Dil Se.
