Yellow peppers are very high in lutein and zeaxanthin which are great for healthy eyes and are both powerful antioxidants! Red peppers are very rich in Vitamin C and contain 11 times more beta-carotene than green peppers.  Beta-carotene is a form of Vitamin A and is great for your eyes.  They promote a healthy heart and healthy lungs.

This soup has an amazing creamy texture, its quite filling, and sooooo fast to make!
