    muffin3355's Note:

    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.

      This recipe is good, however I think it lacks some spices. I added 1 tsp of ground chili pepper, juice of 1/2 lemon, 2 tbsp sugar. Served it warm with crumbled goat cheese ontop. It was undescribably delicious!!

      What a great way to take the chill off. And what a great side for a grilled cheese sandwich. Fallowed tips from other reviewers. From Loula made sure used the full 8 cloves of garlic and am glad I did. From Jennifer skipped the sautéing and went with the toss and cook which worked out perfectly. Recommend using ingredients as posted to maintain the wonderful balance of flavors. Thanks so much for the post.

      I iked this soup alot! It had a great flavour and the sweet potatoe really made it taste special. Since I had a very fresh garlic I decided to cut back on the amount of cloves used ( I thought: 8! cloves-no way!), but that was a mistake! In the end there was barely a hint of garlic left in my soup so next time Ill definitely stick with the stated ingredients. I think Ill also peel the peppers next time (if I have time) for it was a little bit annoying having to try to avoid their skins in the soup. Thats only personal preference, though. Thanks for sharing this nice soup recipe, muffin3355.
