Sweet Potato, Capsicum (pepper) and Ginger Soup
-----------------------------------------------
1 red pepper
1 brown onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped and crushed
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1-5" orange sweet potato, cut in 2 cm cubes (more if desired)
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cups chicken, beef or vegetable stock
1 cup water
Pinch of chili (chili flakes are great, optional)

Cook the pepper, skin-side up, under a hot grill for 10 minutes or until
the skin blackens and blisters. Cool in a plastic bag and then peel and
chop roughly.

Heat the olive oil in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Add onion
and sauté for 3 minutes or until softened but not colored. Add the garlic,
ginger and chili and cook for 1 minute. Add the sweet potato (that has been
peeled and chopped roughly) and coat well in the onion mixture. Pour in the
stock and water, simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the sweet potato is
soft.

Cool slightly and stir in the pepper.

Blend in a food processor until smooth or simply mash with a potato masher.

Season. Number of Servings: 4

Comments:
- To save time, you can just chop the pepper and add it with the onion.
