Spicy Black Pepper Soup Recipe
The base of the soup starts with a mixture of butter and olive oil, which is used to sauté diced onions, carrots, and celery. This creates a flavorful foundation for the soup. Broth is added to the pot and simmered until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together. The soup is then seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste, giving it a spicy kick.
In a large pot, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat.
Add the diced onion, carrots, and celery and sauté until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken or vegetable broth to the pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low, and let the soup simmer for 10 minutes.
Season the soup with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes, to taste.
Serve the soup hot, garnished with chopped parsley.
