Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 375°F. Wash and dry the bell pepper; cut off and discard the stem. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then small dice. Roughly chop the roasted peppers. Grate the gouda on the large side of a box grater. Halve the baguette horizontally.

2 Start the soup

In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced bell pepper and mirepoix. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped roasted peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the tomato paste and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined.

Add the tomatoes (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), broth, and 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until combined and slightly thickened. Add all but 1 tablespoon of the cream (shaking the packet before opening). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the halved baguette to the foil, cut side up. Evenly top with the softened butter and grated gouda. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Transfer to a cutting board. Carefully halve on an angle. Serve the finished soup drizzled with the remaining cream. Serve the toasts on the side. Enjoy!
