Roasted Bell Pepper Soup

Total Time

The original recipe used jarred roasted red bell peppers, but I chose to turn the recipe bell-y up, and subbed fresh roasted red and yellow bell peppers! From Mom's CURVES' magazine. Substitute yams for the sweet potatoes if you wish. The sweet potatoes/yams are a good balance-offsetting any bitterness from the bell peppers. Time to hit the farmers' market for this project!

  2. In a large pot heat up the olive oil on medium heat and saute the leeks until tender.
  3. Add the broth, sweet potatoes (or yams), and bell peppers. Cook mixture until the sweet potatoes are soft, approximately 15 minutes.
  4. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup to desired consistency. Stir in the oregano.
  5. Ladle soup into 4 soup bowls and garnish with the fresh dill!
  6. For Vegan omit the chicken broth.
