Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 3/4 cups Shallots (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Red Pepper (diced)
  • 1 1/2 cup Roasted Zucchini
  • 2 cups Roasted Carrots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Flour (optional -- if you want a thicker soup)
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups Low fat Milk (*See Note)
  • 4 tablespoons Sour Cream (optional as topping to soup)

Note

You can choose to lighten this recipe by reducing the butter to 1 tablespoon and adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil. You can also choose to use non-fat milk.

Or, go the other way and use real cream instead of low fat milk. If you do this, reduce the flour in half.

Directions

Step 1
In large stockpot, melt butter. Add shallots and sauté for 2 minutes to soften.
Step 2
Add roasted red peppers, roasted zucchini, roasted carrots, thyme, cumin and salt. Sauté until vegetables for about 2-3 minutes.
Step 3
Add the flour and cook at least one minute to allow the flour to become a roux.
Step 4
Add the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
Step 5
Serve adding a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
