Here is another vegetable cream, very Mediterranean, full flavor and fresh. In addition, and this does not hurt, red peppers and tomatoes are an important source of lycopene and anthocyanins, both powerful antioxidants. Also this cream is easily customizable to your taste, just use your imagination. In small portions is a delicious appetizer, but it's also a fantastic first course very quick to prepare and very good also light (No cream and Croutons). If you like soups and soups, take a look at Sardinian fregola soup with clams, the mushroom soup, the rice and fish soup with saffron or to fresh vegetable soup.
