Total Time

I came up with this soup last night as a way to use the massive quantity of bell peppers I bought on sale this week. The sweet potato I used was of the pale variety, but I'm sure it would taste delicious with an orange sweet potato.

  1. Heat the oil.
  2. Saute the onions and garlic for about 10-15 minutes on medium heat, or until the onions are soft and very lightly browned.
  3. Add the bell peppers and saute for another 10-15 minutes, until the bell peppers are soft and everything is lightly browned.
  4. Add the sweet potato, vegetable broth, bay leaves, salt, and butter and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft.
  5. Remove the bay leaves and blend the soup until mostly smooth.
  6. Enjoy!
