Beautiful Vegetarian Soup for T-Day

Sweet Red Bell Pepper and Apple Soup

Sweet Red Bell Pepper and Apple Soup

Poking around on the web for something else — it’s just like opening the dictionary if you’re a word nut – I hit upon this terrific soup I think would be delicious for Thanksgiving dinner. Doesn’t matter whether you’re a vegetarian or not — the Sweet Bell Pepper with Apple Soup is pretty and very fall-ish. A switch from pumpkin or sweet potato soups, also good on this day.

The soup and the photo are from the beautiful food blog, Vegalicious, maintained by three writers who give tips and recipes like this one for vegans and vegetarians.

 

Sweet Red Bell Pepper and Apple Soup

  • 4 large red bell pppers, seeded,ribs removed, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable bouillon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of chili powder

Saute the onion until glassy in the bottom of a soup pot over medium heat. Add the vegetables and apples and lightly saute until the peppers begin to soften.  

Add the vegetable bouillon and bring to a boil.

Turn the heat down to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Puree the soup in a food processor or blender, or with a stick blender, to a smooth mixture. (Take care as soup is hot!)

Season to taste with salt and pepper, and if desired a pinch of chili powder. Garnish with croutons or bits of raw apple or carrot.

Makes 4 servings.
