Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Soup on Taste and Tell

Have you ever felt like if you just got organized and caught up on everything, that you’d be able to stay on top of it?

That seems to be my biggest struggle lately. I feel like I spend the majority of my time chasing after things that should already be together, or already done.

So – I didn’t really plan on posting this recipe today. Mainly because I have another sweet potato recipe coming at you this week. (Although really – can you have too many sweet potato recipes? I think not!!) But also because I actually just made this yesterday, and I have a ton of older recipes that I was planning on sharing first.

But, as I went to type up the post for another recipe, I realized I didn’t know where I put the recipe. And since I was so unorganized, I couldn’t find where I put that recipe. So needless to say, there will be time spent today searching high and low for misplaced recipes. This is what I mean by spending all of my time chasing after things!!

But it’s not a huge loss, because it just means that I’m sharing this recipe sooner!! We had our monthly family dinner last night, and did soup and salad. This soup was my contribution. I really had no idea how it was going to turn out. I made it in the morning before church, then after church headed to dinner – not even thinking to try the soup to make sure it was ok.

Luckily, it all went well, and the soup was a hit. I did end up wanting a little more salt, but it was creamy and full of spice – and my brother in law couldn’t believe that it didn’t have cream in it. It does have a little bit of cream cheese in it, but besides that, this is actually full of good for you ingredients.

I’d say this is a great way to get through the rest of the winter!!

Roasted red peppers and sweet potatoes come together in this creamy soup that is full of flavor.
Serves: 6 servings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 jar (12 oz) roasted red peppers, chopped, liquid reserved
  • 1 can (4 oz) diced green chiles

  • 3 - 4 cups peeled, cubed sweet potatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

    Story.Of.My.Life. Every weekend feels like a I’m struggling to catch up…and I rarely ever do. Sigh.

    But, I’m SUPER glad that you ended up posting this soup! Because. Yum. I need it.

  5. I love roasted red peppers and sweet potatoes, great idea to combine them in a soup!

  6. My family says the same thing, that they can’t believe pureed vegetable soups don’t have cream. This looks so so tasty and I love the idea of combining sweet potato and roasted bell pepper.

  7. Jaclyn says:

    This soup looks amazing! What a delicious combo. All the other soups look delish too – the Thai Butternut Squash photo is gorgeous. Belongs in a magazine!

  8. I’m trying my best to get it together and keep myself organized. It’s hit or miss, really. There is no such thing as too many sweet potato recipes. This is going on the list. Love the sweet potato red pepper combo. Pinned!
