    JustJanS's Note:

    I found this very yummy soup whilst looking for recipes to use smoked paprika. I haven't been able to buy it here in town, so I'm pretty excited. The original recipe has more chillies if you wish.Prep time includes blackening, sweating and peeling those peppers! This would be a good vegetarian recipe made with veggie stock, or even vegan if you omit the cream too.

      I liked this soup better the day after making it, and the more I eat it, the more I like it. It is very unusual. I did add salt as well as veggie bouillon powder and I think it needed both. The color is beautiful. I found red bells on sale, otherwise I would never have tried this recipe since they're usually very pricey. If you have red bells growing in your garden, definitely give this a try. And the smoked paprika is a must. If you don't have it, don't bother. You can order it on line and it's so good in so many dishes.
