Roasted Red Pepper Soup for the win!

This time of year there is nothing more comforting than a hot pot of soup. This Roasted Red Pepper Soup is one of our kids favourites and it comes together effortlessly. (Though to be honest- we call it "Red Soup" at home, since my boys (Jean) were tiny they don't like to think about vegetables, lol.) Dress it up with chilli oil and cilantro for a grown-up flavour or just serve with salty Saltine crackers for the kiddos. Yum.
