Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love sticky, hot days with salt in the air. Very ripe peaches, long hours of sunlight, ice cold beer, and sitting around with friends are some of the highlights.

 But tomatoes are pure summer gold. In fact my favorite and easiest vegan meal is sliced tomatoes with basil on bread. If you're feeling adventurous, you could add some vegan cheese

This is another fast meal. It's perfect if you're on the go. It's delicious both as a soup or gazpacho. 

1 Small Red Onion

3 Cloves of Garlic

12 Lunch Box Peppers or 2 Full Size Peppers

4 Medium Tomatoes

Quarter the onion. Peel the cloves and leave whole. Cut the stems off the peppers and in half. Halve the tomatoes. Toss all of the vegetables in oil.

Broil for 15 minutes.

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender with 2 cups of vegetable stock. 

It also makes a great dinner. I like to fry up some peppers, andouille sausage, and I'll make a big batch of herbed rice.

It's perfect if you're in an inter-dietary relationship. (That's where you can't eat the same thing whether by choice or allergies.) I'll eat some peppers, and Justin gets the sausage.

Dinner is on the table in 30 minutes and everyone is happy! Is anyone else in an inter-dietary relationship? What are some of your favorite meals?
