Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Soup

2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded and quartered lengthwise
1 yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and quartered lengthwise 2 small
zucchini (1/2 lb. total), trimmed and quartered lengthwise
1 red onion, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 tsp. olive oil
3 large vine-ripened tomatoes (1 1/4 lbs.), cored and chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 cup shredded basil leaves
1 Tbsp. red-wine vinegar
salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Instructions
Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler. Grill or broil bell peppers, skin-side toward the flame, until the skin is blackened, 5 to 10 minutes. Place in a paper bag and set aside for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush zucchini and onion slices with oil and grill or broil until well browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Chop coarsely and set aside.

Peel the peppers. Coarsely chop the yellow pepper and set aside with the reserved zucchini and onions. Place the red peppers in a food processor or blender, along with tomatoes, garlic and oregano; puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 1 cup water, basil, vinegar and the reserved chopped vegetables.
