Step 1Roast the peppers underneath broiler. Peppers should be just a few inches beneath. Skin will blacken and blister. Turn so both sides blacken this way.
Step 2Transfer peppers into a bowl, covered. Let cool for 15 minutes. Peel off skin and remove stems and seeds. Rinse.
Step 3In a large frying pan, saute onions in butter until tender; cool slightly.
Step 4In a blender, combine the onion mixture, 2 cups of broth and roasted peppers. Blend until smooth. Return mixture to the pan.
Step 5Add remaining broth, cream, salt and pepper. Stir and heat, but do not boil.
Step 6Ladle into bowls. Garnish with Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, and a few drops of cream.
For this recipe, you can make two separate soups using roasted red, and roasted yellow peppers to carefully pour into each bowl simultaneously, to contrast the two colors. In this case, use five red peppers, and five yellow peppers, dividing all other ingredients between the two soups. To create this soup in its simple form, use a mixture of red, orange and yellow peppers.
