4 garlic cloves
2 large sweet red peppers
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt, pepper

  1. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes, the onion and the garlic and place them onto an oven tray lined with baking paper. Wash the red peppers and cube as well. Add the diced red peppers onto the tray. Then drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and toss to evenly coat. Transfer the tray to the oven and roast for 20-30 minutes (200 °C) or until the potatoes are softened.

  2. Peel and finely grate the ginger, put in a pot with the baked vegetables and puree with a hand blender. Stir in vegetable broth and coconut milk, season with paprika powder and yeast flakes.

  3. Pour the soup into a large saucepan and heat over low/medium heat for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve the Sweet Potato Red Pepper Soup alongside freshly toasted bread and garnish with a drizzle of vegan cream, tarragon and toasted pine nuts.
