How to make it
- In large saucepan, sweat peppers and leeks in butter (by covering pan with wax paper and putting on lid) for 15 minutes. Add broth, bring to boil, then partially cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Let cool a little and puree in processor until smooth. Cool thoroughly and stir in buttermilk. Chill and season.
- NOTE: You can freeze base before adding buttermilk using any size container. To serve, thaw and add equal amount of buttermilk. Base can also be used as is over chicken for a nice sauce. Can also mix soup with equal amount of tomato juice for a light version of cold soup.
