Roasted Red Pepper Bisque with Asiago Crisps

Welcome back to the pepper party! We’re continuing the fun today and Wednesday with two more great giveaways thanks to our sponsor, Divemex. I LOVE all the pepper recipes and ideas that have been shared so far, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else has up their sleeves this week!

Today, we’re giving away a Wusthof Classic 8-inch Chef’s Knife (worth $190). A sharp chef’s knife is one of my kitchen essentials, and this knife is top notch – I just know you’ll love it!

Now, you didn’t think I’d be able to make it through the party without making a soup recipe did you? Obviously, not. Seriously, sometimes I feel like I should start a second blog devoted entirely to soup, since I’m sure you all get sick of it sometimes. I can’t help it though!

This Red Pepper Bisque is surprisingly easy to make, featuring just a few simple ingredients, but it’s incredibly rich and satisfying. Asiago crisps and a hunk of crusty baguette make the perfect accompaniments.

  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup fat free half and half or light cream
  • 4 ounces shredded Asiago cheese


  • Heat your broiler. Put the peppers directly under the heat source and broil until the skin blisters and chars, about 5 minutes on each side (keep a close eye on them as cooing time will vary based on your broiler). Let cool. Remove the skin and seeds and chop the peppers into 2-inch pieces.
  • Cut the tomato into quarters. Remove the skin and seeds.
  • Add the peppers, tomato, chicken stock, smoked paprika, and cayenne to a medium pot. Simmer 10 minutes, or until the vegetable are very soft and the liquid is mostly absorbed. Transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth (about 30 seconds). Return to pan and stir in heal and half; heat through.
  • Set a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Divide the Asiago into four small piles in the hot pan; cook until the cheese begins to crisp, about 1 minute. (The cheese will melt, then begin to bubble. It will be ready to flip with the edges start to brown and the top looks mostly dry) Use a fork to gently flip it over; cook 30 seconds on the other side. Remove from the pan and let cool.
  • Divide the soup between four bowls. Float asiago crisps in each bowl.

  1. 4 stars
    I made this tonight as was stated in the recipe and found it a bit bland. I added probably 1/2 teaspoon of salt and another couple of shakes each of the cayenne and the paprika and it tasted amazing!

  2. Love to make vegetarian fajitas. Got my knives 28 years ago as a wedding gift so would love a new one!
