Roasted Red Pepper Soup


When I was doing a little pantry shopping the other day, I spotted a jar of roasted red peppers. With a chill still in the air, I decided that I would create a simple soup from this find. I started by sauteing some onion, garlic, and dried thyme. I then added the peppers and sauteed a bit more. I poured a can of beans for a thickening agent and chicken broth to the mix; also pantry finds, which is so awesome. After a little simmering a little help from my blender, I had the most delicious soup. It's a gorgeous color, so easy to prepare and it's so healthy for you. This one is a winner for so many reasons.
