Art Smith's Red Bell Pepper Soup

If you have heart disease, even a small amount of fat in your diet can be a big problem. In Dean Ornish's plan to Reverse Your Heart Disease in 28 Days, only 10% of your diet comes from fat.




Chef Art Smith, who was once Oprah's personal chef, offers this delicious recipe to trim the fat from your diet with heart-healthy ingredients that will still tickle your taste buds.

8 oz red bell peppers
1 1/2 cups strained canned tomatoes
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp chopped basil
1 tbsp chopped rosemary or oregano
Place the red bell peppers, onions, garlic, jalapeno and tomatoes in a saucepan with the vegetable broth, and bring to a boil over medium heat. When the vegetables are tender, puree the mixture in a blender a little at a time. Cool the soup and add the fresh herbs.
