Tomato, sweet yellow pepper and sweet potato soup
Sweet yellow peppers and tomatoes are full of vitamin C.
This is a tasty soup that will be loved by children and adults alike throughout the winter. Full of flavour and the natural sweetness from the carrots and sweet potato, this soup can be adjusted to include other favourite vegetables from your garden, fridge or even freezer. It is also easy to freeze and almost certainly tastier and better for you than tinned soup.
