Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
1 rib celery, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 small garlic clove, minced
3 medium red bell peppers, ribs and seeds removed, and cut into 1-inch chunks (5 cups)
1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup heavy cream
pinch sugar
coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons roughly chopped chives, for garnish



1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add celery, carrot, onion, and garlic; cook until onion is opaque and carrot is crisp/tender, about 10 minutes.


2. Add peppers, broth, 2 cups water, and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until peppers are very tender, about 15 minutes.


3. Remove bay leaf; purée soup in batches in blender. Return to pot; add cream and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. If necessary, gently reheat before serving, and garnish with chives.

This soup is so easy and delicious. It's good for you, too! You could easily modify the recipe to make it vegetarian or vegan. I found it in Everyday Food magazine.
