Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
The subtle flavor of the zucchini is the perfect compliment to the roasted red peppers in this soup. With only a little bit of garlic and oregano, I kept the seasoning simple in this recipe so that the vegetables could shine. Despite the weather warming up, this is a great soup to have during the spring and summer months. Serve with a crusty baguette and a salad for the perfect meal!
Roasted Red Pepper and Zucchini Soup
In a dutch oven, or large pot, heat 2 Tbs olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and let sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add roasted red peppers and zucchini and sauté for 10 minutes. Add oregano, as well as salt and pepper to taste.
Pour vegetable broth and cream over the peppers and zucchini mixture. Bring to a boil for a couple minutes.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from heat, and using an immersion blender, blend the soup to a smooth consistency.
Return to heat and adjust seasoning to taste. If you feel the soup needs more of a “kick”, add 1 tsp or so of aleppo red pepper flakes.
This sounds like a keeper for me. Thanks.
Thanks Cynthia! Glad you like it. 🙂
Kenley, my favorite meal has always been soup, salad & baguette! This soup looks light and delicious for the summer months!
Thanks so much! 🙂
I am just so glad we don’t live any closer to each other…I would be as big as a house♥
Haha! This comment made me smile. 🙂 Hmmm…Florida and Texas…. only a few states in between (and two giant states that we each live in).
I find that the roasted red pepper gives such a wonderful, rich flavor to puréed vegetable soups. Perfect for a hot summer day!
Thanks! I agree — the roasted red peppers are such a great compliment to so many soups!
Wondering if I could use coconut cream instead of dairy cream…hmm. This looks so good! I love when you post the soup recipes cause those are such standbys in our home.
Eileen, the coconut cream should work just fine. And then just tweak any seasoning needed to balance out the soup. 🙂
Glad to hear you like my soups. 😉
The peppers and zucchini probably won’t make it to the soup because the garlic saute sounds too delicious already!
Haha! You would have a very light soup then…lol! 🙂
Yum, this does sound tasty to a gal who loves soup. I’m betting this would be equally good hot or cold.
Indeed it is. And glad that you like it Linda. 🙂
Really delicious soup, I really love the combination of the roasted peppers and zucchini. I would eat this chilled or room temperature on a hot day.
Thanks Suzanne! 🙂 And yes, it would definitely be good at either temperature.
This sounds divine, zucchini is one of my very favorites as are red peppers. I just planted some in the garden and hopefully will have lots to cook with! This is a great summer recipe, thanks Kenley!
Thanks Jenna! Hope you enjoy it! And I am so looking forward to our zucchini plants this year too! 🙂

This is delicious!
Thanks so much!
I make soup so often that I’m always looking for new ideas – this one looks really delicious…
Thanks so much!
And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I LOVE soups! This one looks wonderful so I pinned it to my soup board and I pinned it on RecipeNewZ too!
Thanks so much Kelli! Appreciate the pinning on both your board and on RecipeNewZ! By the way, thanks so much for talking about RecipeNewZ and My Recipe Magic yesterday! I went and signed up for both and now am awaiting to hear back on ‘chef status’ for recipe magic. Such awesome sites!!
Yay! Both are great and for different reasons – My pictures are NEVER going to get accepted to Tastespotting or FoodGawker and honestly, my friends say they don’t get as much traffic from either of those places unlike RecipNewZ and My Recipe magic so I’m glad I can share my great experiences with both these sites!
🙂 Thanks again! 🙂
