Italian Sausage and Roasted Red Pepper Soup Print 3 LikeDislike By Eva Knez I made this soup by gathering up fresh veggies from our garden. It’s good anytime of year, but especially on a chilly, rainy day.Healthful Hints: If you’re looking for a dose of vitamin C, red peppers are the way to go. Raw peppers are loaded with the stuff, which make them an excellent source of food to fight colds! Bell peppers are also known for their antioxidant content containing various carotenoids and flavonoids, making them a disease fighting food. To get these full benefits it’s a good idea to eat bell peppers raw, but don’t sweat it too much if they’re cooked. Try to add them in later when cooking so that they still have a slight crunch – that way you can maintain the integrity of some of these awesome nutrients.
