Preparation

Roast peppers whole on bbq until black, remove and wrap in plastic (saran wrap)until cool. When cooled the skin and seeds will peel off with ease. Puree in blender and add to stock. Saute shallots and garlic in oil and add, the 1/2 ounce of liquid smoke is optional but I prefer it. Let simmer for 15min or so to let flavours blend. Stabilize with slurry (cornstarch and water). A quick dollop of sour cream goes well with this soup. One of my favourites to impress.
