The soup was amazing. Grilling the veggies is a must to get that wonderful flavor. Also the reason the persons soup above turned pink is because they probably put the red peppers into the blender. If you don't do that, which is says not to, it comes out looking exactly like the picture. It was a little on the spicy side so beware but overall, I shall be making this soup again and again. It was a crowd pleaser!
I don't know why the image is green, the recipe says to "top with avocado". Mine looked more like pink vomit. The taste wasn't too bad. I don't know why it should be served cold, I think hot would be better. Unfortunately, the soup didn't agree with me or my bf. Guess it could be a great diet food. Goes right through ya! Next time, I will serve hot and keep the seeds from the jalapeno. I'll probably use less broth too and add some Dungeness crab.
This soup was very delicious! And probably quite good for you! I don't have a grill, so I broiled the veggies (took about 5-10 minutes). Otherwise, I did everything according to the recipe (except I left the seeds in the Jalapeno in - good, but spicy!). I found the soup to be filling and tasty. I served the soup with some biscuits because that's what my fiance wanted, but I think the soup would probably go better with a french bread, maybe. Something to dull the spice better (if you leave the seeds in, the soup is quite spicy!). I think that this would be a great soup to serve at a summer dinner party.
