I love oven-roasted peppers especially when I transform them into this silky soup seasoned with garlic and thyme. Dip a grilled cheese sandwich into it and enjoy! —Kathy Rairigh, Milford, IN

Directions

  1. Place the red peppers, onion, carrots and jalapeno in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans; drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and whole thyme leaves; bake 5 minutes longer.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2014

"I completely followed the recipe. The color of the soup came out a pumpkin/carrot color. What happened to the red as shown in the picture?

The taste was fine and did work well with a toasted cheese sandwich."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2014

"This was okay. I didn't want the jalapeno so I omitted that. Overall the soup was a bit too 'thin' for my liking. I cooked a cook of quinoa and added it to the soup to thicken it up and add some protein. Still could use something else, just not sure what."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2013

"Delicious!! You could virtually smell the beta-carotene in the air! I made one change: I roasted the squash, halved, in the oven & also roasted the diced sweet potatoes. This is a very, very good recipe; I'm so glad I found it."
