Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 leeks
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 litre of vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger

Method

  1. Peel and chop sweet potatoes into large chunks.
  2. Wash and chop carrots into large chunks.
  3. Finely chop the leeks and fry until slightly brown.
  4. Add other sweet potatoes and carrots and fry for 5 minutes.
  5. Add stock and mix through with vegetables.
  6. Cover and simmer until all the vegetables are soft (20-30 minutes.)
  7. Stir through ginger just before removing soup from heat.
  8. Cool soup for 5-10 minutes then blend.

Tips

  • Leave the peel on the carrots to retain nutrients which are densest closer to the skin of the vegetable.
  • You can substitute an onion for the leeks if you prefer.
  • Adding ginger towards the end of cooking reduces the amount of heat damage to the beneficial oils in ginger.
  • Freezes well for up to 3 months.
