Directions

  • 1 Set oven control to broil. On rack in broiler pan, place red bell peppers. Broil with tops about 5 inches from heat for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until skin is blistered and evenly browned. In large bowl, place roasted bell peppers; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 15 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic to oil. Cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to turn brown; remove from heat.
  • 3 Remove skin, stems, seeds and membranes from roasted bell peppers; cut bell peppers into strips. Into onion mixture, stir bell pepper strips, broth, water and pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally; stir in 1/2 cup of the basil.
  • 4 In blender or food processor, place about one-third of the soup mixture. Cover; blend on high speed until smooth, stopping blender to scrape side if necessary. Pour into large bowl. Repeat 2 times more with remaining soup mixture.
  • 5 Divide soup evenly among 4 bowls. To serve, top soup with diced yellow bell pepper and the mozzarella; sprinkle with remaining basil. Serve with bread.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If too much hot soup is added to the blender at one time, steam can build up during blending and cause soup to pop out of lid. It’s easy to blend without problems if you do it in small batches with a towel held over the lid of blender. Take care when removing the lid, as the hot steam escapes.
