I’m really sure many people can justify a thick bisque soup recipe as being “healing,” but I’m going with it because gosh darn it, real food CAN DO wonders. That being said, this roasted red pepper bisque Cotter Creation is brought to you by the letter c… CAPITAL C! A CREAMY soup with spicy shrimp.

Yes yes, but that wasn’t my main focus here, albeit it is a bonus benefit.
The real focus of this red pepper bisque recipe is on the MEGA dose of Vitamin C was. No really. I’ll explain.
Mr. Cotter, the Kiwi, was sick ALL weekend. Coughing, Cold, Congestion, etc. C where I’m going with this? Bahaha, my puns, sorry, they slip in.
Poor guy. I think life caught up to us one at a time. I got sick right before the move, he got sick after. But at least one of us was healthy enough to take care of each other during, ya know?
Anyway, the red pepper bisque is my HEALING soup (errr bisque?) packed with lean and mean spicy (protein rich) shrimp, that mega dose of Vitamin C red pepper, and creamy coconut MCT fats . Not to mention broth with healing herbs and spices.
Dude, if you are not breathing fresh and cured of all COLD and SICKNESS by the time you finish this soup, then your doomed. I’m kidding. Kinda.
Honest to goodness, this is our healing soup. Creamy, spicy, savory, and a little sweet. But the power of this dish lies beyond the flavors. Get ready to be NERDIFIED (it’s a word, I swear).
Just one red bell pepper contains 169% of the RDA for vitamin C, making it one of the BEST REAL FOOD sources of this nutrient. HOLLAH! Immunity boosting Vitamin C for the win.
Okay here’s where I nerd out a bit. You see, red bell peppers are packed with plant carotenoids (antioxidants). One of them is called luteolin. You knew that though, right? Well you do now. Cause luteolin is pretty badass.
Luteolin and quercetin (another antioxidant in red peppers) are mast cell stabilizing compounds for histamine. Meaning, they can help control the release of it. You know, the histamine that causes inflammation in the body and airways.
Also, side note, roasted red pepper is also badass. Look at this beauty! Just sayin.
Hang with me here. Back to nerd talk and bisque.
So this means Luteolin could alleviate bronchial inflammation. As in periodic “attacks” of coughing, wheezing, congestion. NOW YOU SEE IT?!! YES Vitamin C for Immunity! And Luteolin for reducing inflammation, cough, congestion. Ya’ll, the power of food. I get giddy. It’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
