Winter warming spicy soup

29/11/2011

I love soups, they are easy to make, you can freeze them, have them for lunch or dinner and they are super warming on a winters day, this is a favourite!

Sweet Potato Winter Warmer!
A sweet potato soup with chilli and ginger is blended until smooth to serve:

Ingredients:

3 large sweet potatoes peeled and roughly chopped

1 large white potato peeled and roughly chopped

1 pint of chicken or vegetable stock add more if required

1 dessert spoon of grated ginger (add more if you like it hot)

1 small red chilli finely chopped or 1/2 teaspoon of hot chilli powder

1 onion finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic crushed

1 dessert spoon of coconut oil

In a large saucepan, add the oil onions and garlic.  Soften over a low heat until the onions and garlic are clear and not brown.  Then add all the vegetables and cook for a further 10 minutes until the vegetables are softening.

Add the ginger and chilli, and stir.  Add the stock and cook until the vegetables are soft.  Taste and add a little salt and pepper and if too spicy a little sugar (just a little bit!).

With a hand blender, smooth the soup and serve.

Lovely with some toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds and a dusting of paprika.

For added antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits add a teaspoon of turmeric before you blend.
