Deliciousness defined is this soup from WFLH with red peppers, onion, tomato juice and a hint of cayenne pepper and- strange as it sounds- maple syrup. I didn't really taste it in this recipe, so you might want to up it depending on how strange you like. It's really quite delectable. I halved the recipe- that provided ebnough for dinner and for lunch today. Also. of course, I changed a couple of things from the original recipe to my liking... I always must :)
2 red bell peppers - de-seeded and coarsely chopped
1 red onion - finely chopped
2 tablespoons black truffle oil
1 tablespoon paprika powder
250 ml tomato juice
1 cup of sauteed sausage (I used chicken sausage for this, but use whatever you'd like)
1 teaspoon maple syrup (or 2, if you're feeling adventurous)
Dash of cayenne pepper
Freshly cracked black pepper
parsley, as garnish
Heat the truffle oil in a saucepan. Sauté the pepper and onions for 2-3 minutes, then sprinkle with paprika powder. Allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Pour in the tomato juice and maple syrup. Add the dash of cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
With a puree machine puree the soup finely. If you find it too thick add some more tomato juice. Add cup of chopped sausage, sauteed in another tablespoon of oil.
Serve on pre-warmed soup plates with a splodge of sour cream and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese or parsley.
Blogging really feeds into my desire to cook, and cooking pretty food feeds my desire to take pictures, and I'm just really happy that I have this blog. I hope you're happy about it too :)
