Vine-ripened plum tomatoes punched up with peppers, garlic and rice wine vinegar make this smooth soup from Irvine, California’s Jane Shapton a summer standout. Serve with cheesy garlic breadsticks and a tossed salad for supper.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet red peppers
  • 2 cups water
  • 10 plum tomatoes
  • 1 Anaheim pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

Broil red peppers 4 in. from the heat until skins blister. With tongs, rotate peppers a quarter turn. Broil and rotate until all sides are blistered and blackened. Immediately place peppers in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes. Peel off and discard charred skin. Remove stems and seeds. Finely chop peppers.
In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add tomatoes; cover and boil for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place tomatoes in ice water. Drain and pat dry.
In the same pan, combine the roasted peppers, tomatoes, Anaheim pepper and garlic; heat through. Stir in the broth and vinegar; heat through. Stir in basil. Cool slightly.
In small batches, puree soup in a blender. Return to the pan and heat through. Garnish with cheese. Yield: 5 cups.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
