Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 8 fresh thyme
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 sweet red peppers diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 4 teaspoons plain Greek yogurt (optional)

Method

In Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, thyme and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add red peppers, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until red peppers are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. 

Stir in broth and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until red peppers are tender, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Discard thyme.

Working in batches, purée mixture in blender until smooth. Return to Dutch oven; stir in vinegar. Cook over medium heat until warm. Divide among serving bowls; stir in yogurt (if using).
