Warm soups for the winter

It’s been a long winter and I’ve had some extra time to experiment with some new recipes. I’ve fallen in love with a Roasted Red Pepper & Sweet Potato Soup. It’s dairy free, full of flavor and so easy to make.

Roasted Red Pepper & Sweet Potato Soup

I’ve made this so many times now, I really don’t follow the recipe and have played with several different spices. I’ve done Tumeric & Curry. Cilantro & Cumin with some Chili Powder. I’ve also added some cauliflower into the mix. As far as toppings I always add sriracha and and tortilla chips or pepitas give it a nice little crunch.

Author: Lindsey Johnson Serves: 4


  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • Salt and pepper
  • For garnish: cashew sour cream, sliced green onions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the sweet potatoes, pepper slices, diced onion, and unpeeled garlic in an even layer. Drizzle with avocado oil. Season well with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast for 20-35 minutes, or until the veggies are soft. Remove from oven. Pop the garlic out of the skins. Transfer the veggies to a blender. Add the vegetable broth and puree until smooth. Transfer to a pot and add the smoked paprika and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Turn off heat. Taste and add more salt, if needed, and cayenne, to taste.
  3. Ladle into bowls and top with cashew sour cream, green onions, and an extra sprinkle of paprika.
