Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Red Pepper Gazpacho

3 red bell peppers
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup lime juice
3 green onions (ends trimmed), finely chopped
3 Roma tomatoes, cored and diced
2 bell peppers, yellow and green (or 2 of 1 color), small (about 1/2 lb. each), stemmed, seeded, and diced
1 Salt and pepper

Recipe Directions for Roasted Red Pepper Gazpacho

  1. Cut red peppers in half lengthwise and lay cut side down in a foil-lined 10- by 15-inch baking pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat until skins are charred, about 10 minutes. Cover with foil and let stand until peppers are cool. Pull off and discard skins, seeds, and stems.

  2. In a food processor or blender, smoothly puree peppers with broth and lime juice. Stir in onions, tomatoes, yellow and green bell peppers, and salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Cover soup and chill until cold, at least 2 hours or up to a day. Transport in a thermos (6-cup, or 2 smaller thermoses); serve within 4 hours. Shake and pour into cups; sip and eat with a spoon. Makes about 6 cups, 4 servings. Can serve with a dollop of non-fat sour cream or plain yogurt. Sometimes I add a little hot sauce or cayenne pepper to give it a little heat.
