I’ve come up with a quick and easy chilled roasted red pepper soup that is given a bit of tang and creaminess from having Greek yogurt whizzed into it. The yogurt also gives this vegetarian soup a bit of protein making it into a more filling and substantial dish. It’s refreshing but with a lot of flavor from the roasted red peppers, tomatoes, garlic and basil. It’s perfect for an appetizer or you can also serve it alongside a sandwich or wrap for a quick and cool lunch.

The thing that makes this soup so delicious so quickly is to puree it with ice cubes. The ice ends up being the main liquid of the soup. And since it’s a very cold liquid, as it’s blended with the other ingredients it makes everything really cold along with it.

MY LATEST RECIPES

For this recipe, you can work with homemade roasted red peppers or jarred. You can check out my recipe for making roasted peppers in the slow cookerIf you want to use jarred, look for brands that do not contain sugar or vinegar in the ingredient list. Citric acid is fine.

The soup ends up being cold enough that you can serve it immediately. Or you can cover it and pop it into the fridge until you’re ready – up to 2 days.

And now, here’s my recipe for Chilled Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Greek Yogurt:
