Paprika & Red Pepper Soup with Pistachio Puree

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (72 votes)

Richly satisfying, this luscious-looking soup made with red bell peppers gets a touch of heat from Thai chile. For an extra-nutty flavor, puree an additional 1/4 cup shelled pistachios with 1/4 cup water and serve the soup with a dollop of this pistachio puree on top.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Very good. A thick soup with a great flavor. My husband and I both loved it. It was worth shelling the pistachios by hand. Next time I plan to make a double batch! "

Yummy unusual flavor

The cardamon lends a wonderful aroma and delicate flavor to this soup. The pureed pistachios added a nice texture. I used chocolate peppers from my garden, and they were a great substitute. Instead of non-fat buttermilk and cream, I just used low-fat buttermilk, and it was fine.

Easy to make, great as leftovers

Great for fall!

This soup was great! I followed the recipe almost exactly, with two exceptions. The store didn't have sweet Hungarian paprika, only hot, which I actually think enhanced the recipe. And cardamom is freakin' expensive, so I substituted 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I doubled the recipe fyi).

The only thing I didn't like was the garnish of cilantro. I'll be leaving that out next time.

Easy, cheap, freezes well

like others, I loved this soup, excellent taste and easy to make. I used 2 serrano peppers and wished I had only used one. Other than that it is on the list to remake only I would double the recipe.

This is one of the best recipes I have ever made. I don't change a thing. It is perfect. Serve with a grilled cheese sandwich of cheddar and apples, or ham with mustard.
