I recently had lunch at Sunflower's restaurant on Peace Street and tried the Red Pepper and Carrot Soup that one of the employees recommended. It was delicious, and I would love to try and make this at home. Could you persuade the owner to share this wonderful recipe? -- KB, Raleigh
No extraordinary powers of persuasion were necessary. Deborah Ferebee, owner of Sunflower's (8 W. Peace St.; 833-4676), is generous as usual, ladling up the secrets of Red Pepper and Carrot Soup, along with the recipe for another wintertime warmer, Caramelized Onion and Potato Soup.
