Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot Soup

Soup is one of the best starters for a Seder meal because it is so easy and quick to serve, especially if you have a large crowd at the table. This recipe is a delicious, vibrant and tasty soup, which can be made in advance and uses readily available low-fat Pesach ingredients. Cooked with garlic and basil, it is full of the flavor of the Mediterranean and provides a delightful change from regular carrot soup.


 


Preparation Time: 20 minutes; Cooking Time: 35 minutes plus 10 minutes for cooling.


Serves: 8 people


 


Ingredients


6 large red peppers – cut into quarters, seeds removed


3 tablespoons olive oil


2 onions – peeled and roughly chopped


Large bunch of fresh basil


4 cloves garlic – peeled and finely chopped


6 carrots – peeled and roughly chopped


5 cups vegetable or chicken stock


Pinch of sugar


Salt and freshly ground black pepper


 


Garnish: Sprigs of basil


 


Method


1. Preheat the broiler to its highest setting.


2. Place the peppers on an oven tray and brush them with olive oil. Broil for about 10 minutes or until the skins have blackened and blistered.


3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a large deep saucepan. Sauté the onions, carrots and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add the stock, pinch of sugar and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the carrots are soft.


4. Remove the peppers from the broiler and immediately transfer to a dish and cover with plastic wrap. Leave for 10 minutes to cool.


5. Remove the skins from the peppers and roughly chop. Reserve one red pepper for garnish, but add the rest to the soup with the basil.


6. Simmer the soup for a final 5 minutes.


7. Liquidize half the soup to produce a semi-puree consistency. Return to the saucepan. Taste and adjust seasoning.

These popular little puff pastry parcels are usually filled with potatoes, mushrooms or spinach and cheese. They can be served as snack, as finger foods at a Shabbos kiddush, or as part of a summer picnic. They are a genuine Sephardic-Jewish creation, copied by others throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. They can be served hot or cold; you can prepare them in advance, and then freeze, unbaked. Just pop them into the oven when needed.

This colorful Persian Chicken dish with mint, parsley and dried fruit is perfect for Passover as it is easy to prepare and ideal when you have extra guests. As I use the breast of chicken, there is no carving involved and serving is straightforward. The recipe is cooked in a delicious flavored turmeric stock, so should your Seder go on for longer than expected, the chicken will not dry out. Sephardim would tend to serve it with rice, but in my Ashkenazi household, I serve it with roasted potatoes.
