Simple Summer Harvest Soup

Not sure what to do with all the red bell peppers in Quest's stores? Check out this delicious soup to warm you on a fall day.

Ingredients
2 -3 tbsps olive oil or oil of your choice
2 large onions (about 1lb), chopped
3 or 4 sweet red peppers, bell or other shaped (about 1lb), chopped
3 or 4 Yellow summer squash, (about 1lb), cut into quartered slices
6 cups (48 ounces) chicken or vegetable stock
Optional garnishes: Chopped fresh chives, sour cream, chopped ripe tomatoes

Instructions
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and add the chopped onions, peppers, and squash. Let cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, making sure the vegetables don’t scorch.

Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer with the lid cracked, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Using a blender or stick blender carefully puree the soup to desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot or cold, garnished if desired.
