In saucepan heat oil over medium heat; cook onions, garlic and red pepper flakes stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened.

its per serving and I have to confess that sometimes after the initial simmer I throw in a 1/2 cup of basmanti rice and let it cook for 15 more minutes and then blend. I wonder what it would be like with barley or other SB friendly starch.

Sophie, my recipe is almost exactly like yours!

For added protein and fiber, I like to add a can of chickpeas or cannellini beans before I puree it. I've used black beans in it, too, for a nice twist.

Thanks for sharing your recipe, it's perfect on a cold winter day. Yummy and satisfying.

Cottage - I made this soup today and added the beans as you suggested. It was wonderful and now I can have it because when I added rice only DH eat it. Thanks, never would have thought of it myself.

has anyone tried this without the red peppers? I made it for the first time today and like it, but it's a bit too spicy if I want to serve it to family. (They don't like spicy.)

Just omit the hot red pepper flakes, Wonderlin, and the soup should be mild enough to suit your family's tastes.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was the flakes or the actual red peppers. I like it and have shared with some coworkers who like it, but I'm sure my family would not like the spicy!

I made this tonight! I liked it. I changed a few things though -- used 1 c. less stock and next time would use a little less red peppers. But it was YUM!
