    Serves: 6 

    • 3 red capsicums
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat capsicums on a baking tray and grill, using tongs to turn them as each side blackens. Place the blackened capsicums in a paper bag, close tightly and allow them to cool for 20 to 30 minutes. Peel the skin off the capsicums then discard the stem and all the seeds. Dice the flesh and set aside.
    2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic in the oil for 5 minutes, or until onion is soft. Add the capsicums and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
    3. Add the chicken stock and the cannellini beans, stirring well. Blend or puree in a processor and return to the saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes.

    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe lacks a bit of flavour, but I dressed it up to make it work. I doubled the garlic, added basil, and one tin of chopped tomatoes. It was pretty good after that. [Note: When roasting the capsicums, cut them in half first, stem and seed them, then lay them open face down on the baking tray. That way, you don't have to use tongs to flip them in your oven.]  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. This was really good, simple and easy to make too! My capsicums may have been small, I'd like a little more of the capsicum taste so I may add an extra one. I might even play around and try just a little tomato in it. Its really good as is though, I sprinkled some baked tortilla strips on top. Yum Yum Yum! OK, I had to revise my review. With my changes....I used 4 roasted capsicums and put in a tin of whole tomatoes. Perfection! I also use veggie stock cube instead of chicken as I am a vegetarian. I love this soup!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Made the soup for dinner tonight and used several pieces advice from others...added some more garlic, pepper and oregano. I also followed the directions someone else gave of halving and seeding the capsicums prior to roasting. This eliminated the need for flipping and turning the capsicums. Husband loved it also!  -  08 Oct 2008
