For the Chilled Tomato and Red Pepper Soup, we cut the tomatoes and peppers in half, then broil them to get a roasted flavor. This method also makes it easy to peel them. For the tomatoes, simply pull off the loose blackened skins with tongs or your fingers. The peppers may require a paring knife to remove the skin near the edges, but you won’t have to struggle with the seeds and ribs, which have already been removed.
