Roasted Red Pepper, Sweet Potato & Mushroom Soup (dairy-free, gluten-free)


The best warming winter soup

Sometimes there’s nothing quite like a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day – and lately I’ve been obsessed with this soup recipe, so I thought I’d share it here with you on the blog today. It’s so warming and delicious!

This is actually one of the recipes from my book – I love this recipe so much because it’s easy to make, it’s conveniently low in calories (great for if you wanna lose weight), and it’s also healthy and filling. I love the flavor combination of the roasted red peppers with the creamy sweet potatoes and mushrooms!

This recipe is completely gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free.

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
