I feel a bit as though bell peppers are raining down on my head. Tumble, plump, bumble, plop, boing… And then scattering across the floor. Thankfully they aren’t actually, though I imagine it wouldn’t be entirely unpleasant. But, it would make a lot of peppers to clean up – and they’d require extra scrubbing after being on the floor and all.
Anyhow, we do have bell peppers in abundance. More than can be reasonably used, even through a well strategized line up of stir fries with peppers, pasta with peppers, salad with peppers, and sauteed melanges of who knows what but it definitely includes peppers…with peppers.
I thought about pickling them and packing them by the peck (into pints, of course), and it may yet come to that. But, in the meantime, the clever, immediate, and entirely delectable solution was soup. Roasted pepper soup.
