Serves: 8 (1 cup per serving)


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped

In a Dutch oven place the olive oil, onions, and garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the onions are softened and garlic cloves are lightly browned (9 to 11 minutes). Add the roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, diced tomatoes, and tomato puree. Continue cooking until tomato mixture comes to a boil; lower the heat to medium low and cook for 5 minutes.

Ladle the soup into soup bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream. Serve immediately.
