Perfect Puree Roasted Red Pepper & Leek Soup / Sweet & Sour Margarita

Share This: 
Culinary Traditions Roasted Red Pepper
Our Roasted Red Pepper puree is made from field-ripened sweet red bell peppers - fire roasted, steamed, skinned and seeded by hand. The pepper "meats" are pureed with a touch of olive oil added to make a perfect base for soup, flavored aioli and savory sauces. The roasted flavor and orange-red color makes this a truly special puree.
Red Pepper & Leek Soup
Yield: 4 - 8 oz. servings
  • 12 oz. Culinary Traditions Roasted Red Pepper puree, thawed
  • 2 oz. unsalted butter
  • 6 oz. chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped leeks, white part only
  • ½ tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • White pepper to taste
In a large saucepan, heat butter and oil until butter is melted. Stir in leeks and sauté, covered, over low heat for 20 minutes or until leeks are soft, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken broth and salt to taste. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes, or until leeks are very soft. Transfer mixture to a food processor; cover and process until smooth. In a large bowl, combine leek mixture with Roasted Red Pepper puree and white pepper to taste. To serve hot, transfer mixture to a saucepan and heat through over medium-low heat. Do not boil. To serve chilled, refrigerate until cold. Ladle into individual bowls and garnish as desired.
