My healthy and creamy Crock Pot Red Pepper Soup recipe is nourishing and delicious.

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe it, but my garden is still producing peppers like crazy.  Bell, banana, poblano, anaheim… I’ve got them all.  They’ve even been loving this heat wave this week. (It’s been mid-80’s here!!) They’ll most likely keep going until the first freeze, which I can’t even wrap my head around yet.  Time seems to be flying lately.

So I’ve had to be a little creative with my pepper recipes, which is always fun.  I decided to use up a bunch of red peppers in this gorgeous Crock Pot Red Pepper Soup recipe.  It’s healthy, creamy and absolutely delicious.

Did you know that red peppers are a food powerhouse?  They are super low in calories, but high in nutrients!  Those scarlet beauties are a good source of vitamin A and C, full of potassium, folic acid and fiber.

So that makes this soup a little food powerhouse too.  I feel healthier just looking at it. 🙂

I made the soup creamy by adding one of my favorite healthy ingredients, plain greek yogurt.  It really gives you that creamy sour cream flavor without all the fat AND added protein.

Slurp this decadent bowl down with a cheesy sandwich or a vegan hummus wrap.  And if you are dairy-free or vegan feel free to sub dairy free yogurt or omit it all together.  You’ll lose the creaminess, but it still tastes amazing.  It has the texture of tomato soup, but is just something delightfully different.

    I can’t wait to try this! I’m going to make it for the first course of a dinner party I’m hosting Fri night. 🙂 Quick question–I’m assuming the basil and thyme are dried, given the small quantities? Or are they fresh? Thanks!

    • JulieWunder January 23, 2018 at 8:07 am - Reply

      Yes! Dried. I’ll adjust the recipe to clarify. Thanks!

    Oooh this soup sounds good girl! And you grew the peppers in your own garden to boot? That’s awesome! I could totally picture topping this with some vegan coconut greek yogurt. So good!! We’re still having the heat here too, I’ll have to wait for it to cool down a bit. Or enjoy it cold =)
    Thanks so much for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m pinning & sharing. Hope you’re having a great weekend Julie!

    Oh yes, this soup looks totally gorgeous. I love bright colours in my food, which is just as well as they have a ton of brilliant nutrients in them.

    AGH! This is so perfect because I literally just got back from the grocery store, took out my crockpot, and was calculating ideas. It finally hit freezing temps last night, so soup sounded perfect!

      Totally! I hope you enjoy it. We’re still in the 80’s here!

    Our peppers are always last well into the cooler weather too. We have a bunch out there that are going crazy. Red Peppers are my son’s favorite veggie, so we go through them like crazy. I love them in soup too! This looks super cozy!
