Author Notes: I love anything and everything roasted. I find it the simplest way of cooking. This was something new that I wanted to try out - to combine carrots and green peppers. It was warm, perfect for a rainy night.dieubert

This was worth a try, but I probably won't ever make it again. Way too strong-tasting for me. I ended up freezing it to put into chicken gumbo.

I'm guessing you meant 3 cups of water, not 3 quarts...

3 quarts water, with a single bouillon cube? You're nuts! I used 1 quart of store-bought vegetable bouillon, and it still isn't quite as thick as it looks in the picture. Flavor is nice, though. Going out to buy my crusty bread.
