Red Bell Pepper Soup with Fresh Goat Cheese

Bell peppers, also known as “capsicum,” are a healthy choice and are great for making soup. These types of peppers have beneficial amounts of vitamin C, as well as antioxidants. While bell peppers can be found in a variety of colors to play up the visual appeal of any dish, this recipe calls for red bell peppers. As summer comes to a close and fall takes its place, the warm colors of this soup are comforting on a cool day. Serve with a toasted baguette for a signature taste of France.
