Golden Bell Pepper Soup

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic powder, turmeric, a pinch of salt and black pepper. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Add bell peppers and cook until soft, about 6 minutes. Add sweet potatoes and broth. Season with more salt and black pepper to taste. Cover the pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Lower heat and add marjoram. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Let soup cool slightly. Then, in batches, transfer soup to a blender and puree until smooth. If needed, thin it with more broth or water. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
  4. Return soup to the pot to keep warm until serving. Garnish with gluten-free croutons, avocado and cilantro, if desired. Serve with sriracha sauce on the side, if desired.
