Roasted Pepper Potato Soup Recipe

Roasted Pepper Potato Soup Recipe

I really enjoy potato soup, and this rich creamy version is different than most I've tried. I like its lemon and cilantro flavors, but you can adjust the ingredients to best suit your family's taste buds. --Hollie Powell of St. Louis, Missouri

"I have made this recipe several times now. I double the recipe so there is left overs. My family has nick named it the Indian soup because it reminds us of the Indian food we love."

"Oh my goodness. This soup was amazing! I'll be honest, I was pretty skeptical when I made it, but the flavors blend beautifully! The soup wasn't too spicy but had a distinct taste. My husband loved it and I will definitely be making this again!"

"I want to give this 4.5 stars....i liked the flavor and texture, and it was a nice meatless meal served in a sourdough breadbowl. However, the husband wasn't "wowed", hence not 5 stars. I think for him, an addition of some sort of meat would have been heartier and a keeper of a recipe. Would make again though, and try a twist next time (maybe ground sausage?)"

"I just made this and I hate to say it but I was rather disappointed. I love all the ingredients but the soup had an overpowering cumin taste. I made it exactly as the recipe is written. I must say that after I used my immersion blender on half of it the texture was so smooth and creamy. I'm going to try it again and cut down on the cumin and add some garlic and thyme. Also, I only added a little sprinkle of salt right at the end and that was good."

"Wonderfully adaptable recipe. Rinsed both the red peppers and green chilies to get rid of excess salt. Scrubbed but didn't peel potatoes, used one onion and a heap of minced garlic sautéed in butter gently. Didn't use cilantro and used immersion blender to smooth a portion of the soup. Friends were taste testing before I had time to get any stored in the refrigerator. This is a keeper you can adjust to your family taste. It is a winner for sure. ."

"This was very salty, despite the fact I left the salt out. My husband said it tastes like pickles, which I actually have to agree with. I used fire-roasted sweet red peppers, so that may be the reason?? Smells great while cooking on the stovetop."
