Yellow Pepper soup:
Char the peppers over an open flame or broil them in an oven to roast. In a large saucier, cook the shallot, the thyme, and salt and pepper to taste in the butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until the shallot is soft and translucent. Add the bell peppers and 1 1/2 cups of the broth, and simmer the mixture, covered, until the peppers are very soft (about 15 minutes). In a blender, purée the soup in batches until it is very smooth. Pour back into the pan and whisk in the soy milk, additional broth until it’s a consistency you like, the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

Tomato soup:
Spread the tomatoes, skin side down, in one layer in 2 foil-lined jelly-roll pans, add the garlic to 1 of the pans, and bake the tomatoes and the garlic in a preheated 350°F. oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the tomatoes are very soft and their skin is dark brown. Let the tomatoes and the garlic cool in the pans on racks. In a heavy saucepan cook the shallot, the oregano, salt and pepper to taste in the butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until the shallot is soft, add the tomatoes, the garlic (skins discarded), and 1 1/2 cups of the broth, and simmer the mixture, covered, for 15 minutes. In a blender purée the soup in batches until it is very smooth, forcing it as it is puréed through a fine sieve set over the pan, cleaned, and whisk in the cream, the additional broth if necessary (both soups should have the same consistency), the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. The soup may be made 1 day in advance, kept covered and chilled, and reheated.

Pepper “cream”:
Blend together the chilies, the garlic, and soy sour cream until smooth.
