DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat grill to medium high heat. Core peppers and cut along the seams so that you have 4 slices. Cook peppers for 15 - 20 minutes, turning occasionally, or until charred on all sides. Cool, peel and slice.
  • In a large saucepan, sprayed with cooking spray, add the oil and cook onions, carrots, garlic and basil for 5 minutes or until onions are browned. Stir in stock, sweet potatoes and peppers. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Cool slightly.
  • In (small) batches, puree soup in a blender or food processor. Return to saucepan. Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Serve with garnish.
  • Note: When preparing the peppers, I have a large bowl and plate sitting beside my bbq. Once each pepper slice is charred, I remove it to the bowl and cover the bowl with the plate, then continue cooking. By covering the bowl with a plate, this steams the pepper, making it easier to remove the skin. The peppers will take any where from 15 to 25 minutes to char.
