This Christmas Dinner Embrace The Warmth of the Season with our Creamy Roasted Red Pepper, Sweet Potato & Feta Soup
If you’re looking for a new holiday soup that’s easy, different and will delight your family this Christmas, it’s time to try our Roasted Red Pepper, Sweet Potato & Feta soup. Roasted red peppers and sweet potatoes make the perfect pair, creating a slightly sweet but savoury soup; mixing in Krinos Barrel Aged Feta gives the soup a velvety texture with a distinct flavour profile.
For this recipe, you’ll need 1 jar of Krinos Roasted Red Peppers, drained and chopped, 1 package (250g) of Krinos Barrel Aged Feta Cheese, crumbled and divided, as well as a potato (sweet or yellow), peeled and diced. These three main ingredients, combined with delicious herbs and seasoning, will be the basis of this Christmas soup.
Start by preheating the oven to 400°F (200°C). Using Krinos Olive oil, brush sliced baguettes and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes on each side and reserve for later use.
Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat olive oil one medium heat and add one small yellow onion diced, and diced potato. It’s up to you if you’d like to use a sweet potato or a yellow-flesh potato. A sweet potato will make your soup more orange and colour and definitely add sweetness; a yellow-flesh potato will make your soup creamier and lighter in colour. Once the onions are transparent, add 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tsp Krinos Dried Greek Oregano and continue to sauté. Add chopped roasted red peppers and 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth. Krinos Roasted Red Peppers are slightly tangy because they’re marinated in white wine vinegar. As the soup cooks, this flavour will balance out the sweetness of the potatoes and create a memorable taste.
Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Remove from heat and allow soup to cool for 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to blender and blend until smooth before returning back to pot. And then the showstopper.
Gently stir in Barrel Aged Feta, reserving 1/4 cup. Heat through, on low. The rich Barrel Aged feta will add another element of flavour depth and profile and provide a silky finish, rounding out this unexpected, yet welcomed, Christmas soup.
Serve soup in shallow bowls topped with two toasted baguette slices and remaining crumbled feta.
