I was suspicious about caramelizing onions in the same pot with the peppers, as I thought the peppers would give off a lot of liquid and prevent the browning of the onions. I was right. This pot of mess has been cooking for over an hour and the onions are stewing in pepper liquid. We're hungry so I decided to proceed with the recipe using my stewed peppers and onions. It might be good. If it is, next time I will caramelize the onions the usual way and cook the peppers separately.

Totally yummy. I love using fire roasted canned tomatoes. Not a big basil fan so just used a sprinkle of dried Italian seasoning. There's no creme fraiche in my house, so I used sour cream on top.

Delicious! I added two jalapeños in with the bell peppers, and it gave it the perfect little kick! Aside from that I wouldn’t change a thing. Also nice that it could be easily made vegan!

Perfect pandemic soup! But would be good for any time, calamitous or normal. Came together quickly, and was easy to make with ingredients on hand (peppers were easy to come by since produce isn't good for hoarding). Served with grilled cheese and salad. True story: this is the first time I've had grilled cheese and tomato soup (I'm in my 30s) - this made me feel good down to my toes :)

I LOVE this soup. It is quite possibly my favorite soup recipe ever. It is absolutely incredible tasting and so simple to make, plus it has the added benefit of being easily made dairy free. I use a good quality bone broth and apple cider vinegar (since that’s what I have on hand) and this soup has gotten me through fall and the start of a Midwest winter.

Oh, tomato--how I love thee! THANK YOU Ella for this recipe and the "pizza" focaccia. I am in the kitchen as I write following the recipe and concoting a tomato feast from both of these recipes.
