Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Soup

 RED PEPPER AND GOAT CHEESE SOUP

2 medium onions, finely chopped

3 1/2 pints of vegetable stock

2/3 cup of dry white wine

8 medium red peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped

1 large cooking apple, peeled , cored and coarsely chopped

2 tsp. dried basil

Salt and pepper to taste

5 oz. soft goat cheese

Boil the onions in 1/2 cup of stock for about 10-15 minutes until stock has evaporated and onions have browned and are beginning to stick to the pan, being careful not to burn them. Add the wine to de-glaze, scrapping the onion bits off the pan.and simmer for 3 minutes.  Add all other ingredients except the goat cheese.  Simmer,  partially covered for 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

Cool a little and then purée with an immersion blender. Pass the soup through a sieve or fine strainer (this is essential) into a clean saucepan and reheat gently. Add the goat cheese and whisk into the soup until it has melted.  Taste for seasoning.  Garnish as desired.

  2. Please let me know if you like this recipe. I can’t get enough and am always happy when I make a double batch and freeze it. I pull it out of the freezer and think “so glad I thought ahead”! LOL
