Cut and deseed the peppers, drizzle with 3 tbsp of oil and roast for 30min in the oven and put on broil for 3min.
Once the peppers are roasted, turn off the oven and place the peppers over ice. (This sudden change in temperature will help remove the burnt skin/peel quickly)
Peel all the roasted peppers and place on a plate
Now heat oil in a large pan, add bay leaf, onion and garlic.
Saute over lower to medium heat till onions become slightly translucent or brown.
Now add roasted peppers, thyme, salt, black pepper and saute for 2 min.
Add broth/water and vinegar, give it a quick stir and cover with lid and cook over low heat for 10min.
After 10min (the veggies would have cooked well and you’ll get a sweet aroma) switch off the heat and let the mixture cool completely.
Blend this mixture to a smooth consistency and sieve for any extra pulp/fiber.
Heat butter in a pan, pour the blended soup and give it one boil and turn off the heat.
Serve this soup hot or cold.
This soup can be made 1-2days in advance and stored in fridge.
If you would like to store it for more days or keep extra, then freeze and use within 2weeks.
