If I could, I would actually give this 2.5 stars. It's okay as is, but would benefit from some tweaking. I added some vinegar to the finished soup, but that didn't entirely do the trick. The only other change I made was to use red bell peppers instead of yellow, with the result that the soup's color was something like nacho-cheese orange. The recipe is very easy to prepare, with a fair amount of chopping, although that chopping doesn't have to be precise because you're going to blend it all up anyway.
