Yellow Pepper Soup

This Indian inspired soup with its aromatic spices is full of immune defense deliciousness. It took less than 30 minutes to prepare this recipe for two.

The ingredients will be pureed in a food processor or with an emulsion blender so the vegetables can be cut into 1/2 or smaller inch pieces. I used my Nutribullet to perform the puree action and it worked perfectly.
