Flame Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Roasted red pepper soup is one of my most fav of soups.  Flame roasting those peppers does something to them.  While I know there are some people out there who add cream to this soup, I highly recommend not to.  There is something about the purity of the flavor that cream hinders.  Of note, the recipe listed below is a little different from the one that I have been using for years.  Mostly because I used what I had in the fridge.  Which turned out delish, as always.
