This colorful soup, thickened with potato, makes the most of the sweet, smoky flavor of roasted red peppers.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium russet potato, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 15-ounce jar roasted red peppers
  • Salt and pepper to taste (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • Sprigs of fresh marjoram or basil for garnish

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, sauté garlic, onion and potato in olive oil over medium-high heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and continue to cook 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Add roasted red peppers and puree soup in a blender or food processor. Simmer over medium heat 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
