Golden Bell Pepper Soup

Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It’s stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter’s day. This soup also freezes well, so if you’re not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts.

Serves 8people
Ingredients
1/4
cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2
small onion, diced
2
medium carrots, peeled and diced
1
celery stalk, diced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
8
yellow, red and/or orange bell peppers, chopped
1
large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
4
cup low-sodium vegetable broth
3
tsp finely chopped fresh marjoram
1
recipe gluten-free herbed croutons, for garnish
sliced avocado, for garnish; optional finely chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish; optional
drizzle seriously sensational sriracha sauce, for garnish; optional
Directions
1.
In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook until soft, about 6 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and broth. Season with salt and black pepper, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and add the marjoram. Simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
2.
Let the soup cool slightly, and then, in batches, transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. If needed, thin the soup with water. Adjust the seasoning with salt and black pepper if necessary. Return the soup to the pot to keep warm until serving. Serve garnished with the Herbed Croutons and, if desired, the avocado and cilantro on top and Seriously Sensational Sriracha Sauce on the side.
