Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup W/ Smoked Gouda

We went on a short vacation to Yellowstone last year and ate Roasted Red Pepper Soup at the Old Faithful Lodge. It was so good that I had to make it. When we got home I looked up several recipes for red pepper soup and none were quite right. So, I took parts of each recipe and came up with this one. Probably isn't the same as we had in Yellowstone but it is delicious and worth the effort. Sorry about no picture but maybe someday I will learn how to do that.

3 red peppers, charred, peeled and cut in strips
2 TB oil
1 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 C chopped carrot
1 potato, chopped
3 cans chicken stock (or equivalent of home made stock)
1 C tomato sauce
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 C cream or evaporated milk
1 tsp Basil
2 C shredded smoked Gouda cheese

Cook onion, garlic, carrot, in oil for about 10 minutes. Add potato, stock, tomato sauce and thyme and simmer about 10 minutes. Add peppers and cook till tender, about 15 minutes. Process in blender till smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add Gouda. Add 1/2 C evaporated milk or cream and 1 tsp. basil.

  1. We were at Old Faithful last week and the Sweet Red Pepper Soup with Gouda was one of our favorites. The corn chowder at the Snow Lodge was even better. Trying to track down that recipe too. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Have you looked at Campbell's Insignia StockPot page? Looks like they make the Red Pepper with Gouda soup. Wonder if Old Faithful gets it from them. Wouldn't that be ironic?

  4. When we were at the Old Faithful Inn last week I asked about the Red Pepper w/Gouda soup and was told by the server that they buy it from StockPot (Campbell). I'm gonna buy some....
