Roasted Red Pepper & Quinoa Soup

Warm, spicy dishes are perfect for chilly, rainy fall New England days. We visited a local farm last week and I couldn’t wait to cook up some of the fresh veggies we got like hot peppers, tomatillos and cherry tomatoes; all rich in vitamin C and other immune supporting phytonutrients. Roasting the veggies first brings out rich flavors and texture. I love making soup because we have plenty of leftovers for a quick lunch the next day.
