How To Make Sweet Potato And Carrot Soup

This is another recipe that I really liked, it is rich and sweet and it is even delicious out of a flask too!

Serves 6 people and takes 15 mins to make and 40 mins to cook:

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 700g)
  • 2 medium Carrots
  • 15g unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, peeled and finally chopped
  • 1 tbsp Ground Coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground Cumin
  • 2 litres Vegetable stock (2 Cubes dissolved)  

To serve a little grated Gruyere Cheese  or chopped fresh Coriander 

Method

  • Peel the sweet potatoes and carrots and cut into small, even sized chunks. Heat the butter and oil in a large pan and cook the onion gently until soft. This will take about 10 mins
  • Add the Coriander, cumin, sweet potato and carrots and cook for a few more minutes, stirring to coat the vegetables in the spices.
  • Add the stock ( 1 litre) bring the boil, cover and gently simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender.
  • Pour into a blender and puree until smooth. return to the pan, add the remaining stock and heat through.

If you want, you can sprinkle a little grated Gruyere or chopped coriander over the top.

  1. You can’t beat soup for a healthy meal. If you save the water from your vegetable steamer, you can use it as stock instead of a shop bought stock cube. Also, you can add pulses like beans or lentils to give extra fibre. I always add a couple of teaspoons of pesto as it really enhances the flavour of the soup and I often add cooked pasta at the end to make it into a complete meal.

  2. I will be making this ASAP. Looks so good!
