In a saucepan over a medium heat, warm the oil then cook and stir the onion and garlic until soft. Add the peppers, celery and potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Add salt, black pepper and sugar to taste, then pour in the stock and simmer for 30 minutes until vegetables are very soft.
Transfer the soup to a food processor, in batches if necessary, or use a hand-held liquidiser and process until smooth.
In a bowl combine thyme, rocket, sheep's cheese and olives and mix well.
Ladle soup into individual warmed bowls and sprinkle each with some of the herb-cheese mixture. Serve immediately.
