Ingredients

2 potatoes 400 g
3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium 750 mL
2 yellow or red sweet peppers 400 g
1 red onions 150 g
1 1/2 clove garlic
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

The vegetables can be cooked in the oven or using an outdoor grill. A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F.
  2. Peel the potatoes, then put them in a pot. Pour in the broth. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are soft, about 15 min.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the peppers in half, removing the seeds and the stalks, then put them on an oiled baking sheet, cut side down. Cut the onions into 1 cm slices then add them to the sheet. Add the garlic cloves, unpeeled. Cook in the middle of the oven until the vegetables are soft, about 15 min. Turn them once halfway through cooking. Alternatively, grill the vegetables on an outdoor grill.
  4. Remove the vegetables from the oven, cover the peppers then let them cool down about 10 min. Peel the peppers and garlic then add them to the pot along with the onions. Cook a couple of minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Purée the soup in a blender until a creamy consistency is obtained. Serve.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.
