Prep Time 10 mins; Cooking Time 25 mins; serves 4

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/8 tsp chili pepper flakes
1/4 cup lowfat sour cream
1/2 cup cool herb croutons
3-1/3 cups Italian style peeled tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped (optional)

Melt butter in a heavy non-reactive saucepan over medium heat. Add first 4 ingredients. Cove and saute 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until vegetables are tender. Stir in tomatoes, stock, chili pepper flakes and salt. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer 15 mins. Transfer, in batches if necessary, to blender or food processor. Process until soup is almost smooth. Return to pan and simmer another 5 mins until very hot, or serve chilled if desired. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, croutons, cilantro and mint.

NOTE: This recipe makes enough for me to have for 3 meals. For one of the meals I used grated Parmesan instead of the sour cream and the other I had without either. Think I actually prefer the cheese.

I'm still HOT - it just comes in flashes!
