Roast bell peeper on grill or gas stovetop. Turn frequently until skin is evenly charred. Place in a medium bowl, cover with a kitchen towel for 10 minutes (or place in a zip lock bag). Peel skin under running water. Remove seeds. Chop into 1/2 inch cubes. You may opt to buy roasted red bell peppers. These work well also.
Place sweet potato, bell pepper, ginger, oil, miso, and broth in a blender or food processor, in 2 or more batches if necessary; cover with lid and kitchen towel. Blend until smooth. If consistency is too thick, add water. Heat soup in a medium saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 minutes, or until hot. Add aminos and seasoning blend if desired
