- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 sweet potato, diced
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander

- In a large dutch oven or stock pot, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add peppers, celery, carrots, onion, zucchini. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

Laura Griffin says:
I love sweet peppers, but this was my first time trying it in a soup and now I'm officially obsessed. I added Sriracha as the recipe recommended and it was delicious.
Greg Jones says:
This sweet pepper soup was delicious and a nice combo of sweet and savory. Love all of the flavor melded together. I bet it also tastes good in the summer as a chilled soup. I'll have to try that next.
