This is a healthy vegetarian soup with sweet potato and red bell pepper. The quantities in the recipe here serve 4 people. It’s ready in 40 minutes or so.
- 4 cups of peeled and diced sweet potato
- 2 cups of deseeded and diced red bell pepper
- 1 medium red onion, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 6 cups of water
In a large cooking pot, cook the sweet potato, red bell pepper and onion with the olive oil until the onion is soft and translucent. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer covered until the sweet potato is soft, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the heat, and carefully blend the soup with a stick blender – or a blender/food processor (bring back the soup to the cooking pot after blending). Taste the soup, and add more pepper and salt if needed. Cook a few minutes more until the soup is slightly thicker and hot through, and serve.
