Ingredients

  • 3 sweet red peppers chopped
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed, about 4 cups/1 L
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

Method

In roasting pan, toss together red peppers, potatoes, onion, garlic, oil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven, stirring once, until tender and golden at edges, about 1 hour.

In food processor, purée vegetables with stock, in batches; strain into large pot. Whisk in 1 cup (250 mL) water. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate, uncovered, in airtight container until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

Bring soup to boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir yogurt with parsley. Serve dollops on bowls of soup.
