Just made some for GF and me.. I roasted the bell peppers over BBQ and the red onion just enough to get the smoke flavor in there too. With some toasted bread and feta cheese on top on the side. Dinner was amazing our favorite tomato soup. Both thumbs up..... Thank you for a great recipe....

YUM. All I have to say is that I have eaten it every night after I made it. Thank you!

When it comes to the stock, instead of the home-made stock can one use those stock-dices that just need to mix with water? If that's ok then would it still be the same quantities?

That should be fine. It should say on the package how much water to add to made stock (rather than gravy or something).
 Just tried it and it's great! My friend took a taste out of the pot and immediately scooped out a bowlful for herself. Great recipe.

For the chicken stock, could you theoretically buy a cooked chicken, say, a roteiserie (There's one word I can't spell at all.) chicken from Wal-Mart, and take the bones from that?

As long as they aren't flavoured in a funny way they'll work fine. Bones are bones.

Okay then. Would you use the same procedure for shellfish stock? Just with the exoskeleton.

I don't know. I don't eat shellfish.

This turned out great! A few pepper pieces didn't cook as thoroughly as the others and were difficult to peel, but now I know what I did wrong. One question - where do you use the oil? I assumed it was for when you put the onions on and that's what I did, but you didn't say so I wasn't positive. I will definitely make this again.
NoFiller (author)  jwystup5 years ago
Yes, you assumed correctly. Thanks for pointing that out. Thanks for posting a pic of how it turned out, it looks tasty.

Good looking soup, I imagine it tastes that good too. Is that pitta-toast?

Actually they are some leftover homemade crackers. I've got a plan to make an 'ible for them next time I get around to making a batch.
They look good, please do make an I'ble.

Ok, I've put up the i'ble ('able?) for crackers.

 i like crushed red pepper in my tomato soup. and black pepper. in my grilled cheese sandwich, i sometimes add 1/8" thick slice of ham.
add this then you'll get 5 stars.
