Great soup to make when you've run out of time.....
I have also added fresh seafood to this recipe with very nice results, particularly Dungeness Crab.
Less than 1/2 hour from start to table. And so tasty!

Cook onion and 1/2 of the red pepper in butter is a large saucepan. Slowly sprinkle in the flour and mustard, stirring constantly. Continuing to stir, gradually pour in the broth.
