Ingredients for Roasted red pepper gouda soup

  • · 4 large red bell peppers, roasted and peeled
  • · 1 onion, chopped
  • · 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • · 4 cups vegetable broth

  • · 2 cups shredded gouda cheese
  • · 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • · Salt and pepper to taste
  • · Optional garnishes: chopped fresh parsley, croutons, extra shredded gouda

Roasted red pepper gouda soup - Recipe Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the red bell peppers on a baking sheet and roast them for about 25-30 minutes, or until the skins are charred and blistered. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before peeling off the skins. Remove the stems and seeds, then roughly chop the roasted peppers.
  2. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the roasted red peppers to the pot and stir to combine with the onions and garlic.
  4. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Using an immersion blender or regular blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth and creamy.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream and shredded gouda cheese until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Continue to simmer the soup for an additional 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, to ensure it's heated through and well combined.
  8. Serve the soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley, croutons, and extra shredded gouda if desired.

Nutrition Advantages

This soup is packed with nutritious ingredients. Red bell peppers are rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber, while gouda cheese provides calcium and protein. Additionally, the vegetable broth adds vitamins and minerals, making this soup a wholesome and satisfying option for a balanced meal.

Recipe Alternatives

  • For a vegetarian version, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
  • To make it gluten-free, ensure all ingredients, including garnishes like croutons, are gluten-free.
  • For a lighter option, substitute half-and-half or milk for the heavy cream.
  • Experiment with different types of cheese such as cheddar or fontina for unique flavor variations.

Tips for upgrading the recipe

  • To enhance the smoky flavor, you can char the red peppers directly over a gas flame or grill instead of roasting them in the oven.
  • If you prefer a chunkier soup, reserve some of the roasted red peppers before blending and stir them back into the soup after blending for added texture.
  • For an extra kick of heat, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a splash of hot sauce to the soup.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for longer storage. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave before serving.

This creamy roasted red pepper gouda soup is a versatile and satisfying dish that’s sure to become a favorite in your recipe collection. Enjoy its comforting flavors and creamy texture any time you need a cozy meal to warm you up!
