Chilled Yellow Pepper Cilantro Soup is a refreshing and flavorful dish that is perfect for hot summer days. The combination of sweet yellow peppers, tangy sherry vinegar, and fresh cilantro creates a unique and delicious flavor profile that is sure to impress your guests.


This recipe is a modern twist on traditional gazpacho, a cold Spanish soup made with raw vegetables. By roasting the peppers before blending them into the soup, the flavors are intensified and the soup takes on a rich, smoky taste.

  3. Place the peppers in an oven-proof baking dish and cover with foil.
  4. Roast the peppers at 350°F (177°C) for 45 minutes.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients, except cilantro, into a blender.
  6. Once the roasted peppers are finished, add them to the blender and blend thoroughly.
  7. Strain the mixture through a fine Chinoise.
  8. Adjust the seasoning and place the mixture in the refrigerator until completely chilled.
  9. At the time of serving, use chilled soup bowls and place the tartar mixture at the bottom of each bowl.
  10. Ladle 6 oz (170 g) of soup over the top of the tartar mixture and garnish with cilantro chiffonade.


  • Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream on top of each serving for a creamy finish.
  • Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds or croutons for added texture.
  • For a spicier version, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a chopped jalapeno to the soup.

How did I get this recipe?

I remember the joy I felt when I first stumbled upon this recipe for Chilled Yellow Pepper Cilantro Soup. It was a hot summer day, and I was browsing through a quaint little farmers' market in the countryside. As I meandered through the stalls overflowing with colorful fruits and vegetables, a friendly elderly woman caught my eye.

She had a radiant smile and a twinkle in her eye as she beckoned me over to her stall. "Would you like to try a sample of my Chilled Yellow Pepper Cilantro Soup?" she asked in a warm, inviting tone.

I had never heard of such a soup before, but I was intrigued by the vibrant yellow color and the fresh aroma of cilantro wafting from the steaming pot on the stove. I eagerly accepted the small cup she handed me and took a sip.

The flavors exploded in my mouth – the sweetness of the yellow peppers, the tanginess of the lime, and the earthiness of the cilantro all melded together in perfect harmony. I knew immediately that I had to learn how to make this soup myself.

The kind woman saw the delight on my face and offered to teach me her recipe. She explained that she had learned it from her grandmother, who had passed it down through generations. I was honored to receive such a special gift and eagerly took notes as she guided me through the steps.

I learned that the key to the soup's depth of flavor was in the roasting of the yellow peppers. By charring them over an open flame until the skins were blackened and blistered, the peppers took on a smoky sweetness that added a rich complexity to the soup.

After roasting the peppers, I pureed them in a blender with fresh cilantro, garlic, onion, and a splash of lime juice. The vibrant yellow color of the peppers combined with the bright green cilantro created a stunning visual feast for the eyes.

I chilled the soup in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld together, then served it in small bowls garnished with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. The first spoonful brought back memories of that hot summer day at the farmers' market, and I knew that this soup would become a staple in my kitchen.

Over the years, I have made the Chilled Yellow Pepper Cilantro Soup for countless family gatherings, potlucks, and dinner parties. Each time I prepare it, I think of the kind woman who shared her recipe with me and the joy that food can bring to those who share it.

I have since added my own twist to the soup, experimenting with different herbs and spices to create new variations on the original recipe. But no matter how many times I make it, the Chilled Yellow Pepper Cilantro Soup always brings a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart.

As I sit here in my cozy kitchen, surrounded by the aromas of simmering soups and freshly baked bread, I am filled with gratitude for the wonderful world of flavors and recipes that I have had the privilege to explore. And I am reminded that the true joy of cooking lies not just in the food itself, but in the stories and memories that accompany each dish.
