Roasted Yellow Pepper Soup Recipe

Roasted Yellow Pepper Soup Recipe

We got this recipe from a good friend and Merchant Marine in New Hampshire. My husband and our two small children liked it so much that I started raising yellow peppers. We enjoy it in the middle of summer or on a cool fall day. —Amy Spurrier Wellsburg, West Virginia

"this was fantastic!! The extra work required by roasting the peppers was worth the effort. I think its the leeks that give it such wonderful flavor."
