calories 117


6 large Florida tomatoes, cores removed and quartered

3 large Florida red bell peppers, seeds and stem removed, chopped rough

1 large onion, peeled and chopped rough

2 tablespoons fresh garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning (such as Everglades)

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Plain yogurt or sour cream for garnish


Place a large soup pot over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Carefully add the peppers and onions and cook for 10 minutes while stirring occasionally. The peppers and onions should have some good caramelization and color on them from cooking. Add the garlic, tomatoes, seasoning blend and smoked paprika. Stir ingredients and continue cooking for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chicken or vegetable broth and stir. Bring ingredients to a quick boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook ingredients for another 10 minutes. Remove the soup pot from the heat. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until creamy and smooth. Once the soup has reached the desired consistency, taste it and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve soup warm with a garnish of plain yogurt or sour cream.

Fresh Tip: If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a countertop blender working in small batches at a time. Always be careful blending hot liquids.
