Last year I shared a recipe weekly for my Cooking Through My Collection Series, and I loved sharing those because it really helped me explore more recipes and use my cookbook collection.
With the holidays and all the other recipes that I have been posting, it has been awhile since I shared a recipe for that series, but today I have a new recipe for the Cooking Through My Collection Series. And this year I hope to continue the series, but instead of weekly, I plan to share one or two recipes a month with you.
Now on to the soup recipe.
Today’s recipe comes from a the cookbook All You Delicious on a Dime. This cookbook contains 154 budget friendly recipes. And not only are they budget friendly, but they are family friendly as well. These are recipes your family is sure to enjoy.
I received this cookbook to review last year and really enjoyed looking through it. One of the recipes that I knew I wanted to try was the Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup.
My family loves tomato soup, but I have never thought to add roast red peppers to it. It is a simple addition that adds so much flavor. If you like tomato soup this is a fun version to try.
Tomato, Basil, and Red Pepper Soup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced, (I used regular onions because that is what I had.)
- 1- 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 3/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup chopped, roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and seeded
- 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- Melt butter over medium low heat. Add onion and saute until onion is softened.
- Add tomatoes, chicken broth, roasted red peppers, and basil.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in cream.
- You can eat the soup as is, but if you like a smooth soup like my family does, puree soup in a blender or with a hand blender. If you use a blender be careful blended hot ingredients.
Note; I received the cookbook Delicious on a Dime free to review, but my thoughts and opinions are my own.
