This fresh red bell pepper soup is quick to make, yet it is bursting with fresh flavors of red peppers, garlic, onions, stock and a teeny bit of butter- you can easily use oil instead.It's creamy without any addition of cream and makes a fantastic light lunch. Serve with some warm ciabatta bread and a light green salad :)
