Spicy Sweet Potato soup – Winter recipe

Spicy Sweet Potato soup – Winter recipe

I am not going to try to fool you into thinking that I am some master chef because I have managed to rustle up some soup. A recipe that wasn’t even my own. However, I have been making this particular soup for a while now. Forcing family members round to try it. I finally feel as though I have pinned the process down into a perfect cheap, easy, winter warmer that you should all try. 

I am not one to cook often. I like simple things in every sense of the word. Simple to make, simple to eat, simple to wash up. Pasta and a bit of pesto are all I need. When a recipe this easy and tasty comes along I like to share them. I have a post here on easy carb free pancakes and spaghetti. So I thought I would share this little gem with you too so you can feel like Jamie Oliver this winter too.

Ingredients 

  • 1 x Veg stock cube (I used chicken because it was in my sister’s cupboard) 
  •  1 x tinned tomatoes (I used the one with added herbs because I thought extra seasoning could do no harm)
  • 2 x carrots
  • 1 x medium sweet potato
  • 1 x red onion ( I have used a white onion twice before and noticed no difference) 
  • 2 x red peppers
  • 1/2 tin of coconut milk (I used reduced fat, old habits) 
  • Salt, pepper, and chilli flakes (you choose how much)

I don’t think that is how you go about listing ingredients but I am sure you will all understand.

The Process

  1. Fry the chopped up red onion and red peppers up in a frying pan
  2. Boil the stock in a big casserole pan (I am sure people who know their way around a kitchen have a real name for this)
  3. Peal and chop the two carrots and sweet potato and add to the stock, also adding in the fried red onion and peppers.
  4. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, mixed chillis, salt and pepper then leave to boil until vegetables are soft
  5. ( I do have a soup maker so I can just through it all in and leave it to make all of the soup but I like to feel like I have had some input)
  6. Once soft blend all the soup up and bring back to the hob to heat through whilst adding the coconut milk.
  7. Serve with a warm bread roll and sit there smugly because you now feel like the next Jamie Oliver.
