Hot and Spicy Sweet Potato Soup
We had this thick creamy, spicy soup for supper the other night with crusty bread and it went down a treat, with the children especially enjoying it. It is easy to make with preparation time about 10 minutes or so and cooking time not much longer. When I did this I made enough for two meals and placed the second batch in the freezer for another night.
|Hot and Spicy Sweet Potato Soup|
2 tbs Blodyn Aur Rapeseed Oil (this is produced locally to me and I have been pleased with its quality) alternatively use Olive Oil
3 onions chopped
5 garlic cloves chopped
6cm of fresh ginger peeled and grated
1 birds eye chilli chopped (use more if you like it spicy)
1 tbs garam masala
4 tsp curry powder
2 or 3 large sweet potatoes 1.2kg chopped into cube type shapes
Vegetable stock about 2 liters, if you have made your own that would be great if not 2 cubes of veg stock added to the water.
400ml coconut milk
small bunch of fresh coriander chopped
juice of 1 lemon or lime
A good pinch of salt and pepper to season
|Chopped Onions ready to be fried|
|Spices ready to be added|
|Sweet potatoes added to the pan|
Add the lemon or lime if you prefer and coriander (I would have used coriander but it is not to my children's taste I therefore added a bit of basil) and serve with crusty white bread. If a little bit too spicy add some yogurt.
