A Little Bowl Of Sunshine

I have been eating a lot of sweet potato. I mean, a lot of sweet potato. Sweet potato wedges, sweet potato mash, sweet potato in my burritos (another thing I have been eating far too much of), you name it, sweet potato will be in it. But I thought I'd give something else a go. I'm trying to eat a bit cleaner, get rid of the winter blubber, feel good on the inside, so a gave a soup experiment a go - and it was a roaring success!



Here is how to make my sweet potato, ginger, lime and chilli soup:

Ingredients

3 medium sweet potatoes
1 medium/2 small onions
4 garlic cloves
2 tbsp oil (I used sunflower)
2 vegetable stock cubes
1 litre water
1 lime (juiced)
1 thumb sized piece of ginger
1 red chilli (or more if you like it hot!)

Method

Heat the oil and sweat the onions and garlic until soft
Add the water and stock cubes to the pan
Once the stock is boiling add in the sweet potatoes and allow to simmer
After 10 minutes add the ginger, chilli and lime juice
Simmer until the sweet potato is soft
Blitz, blitz, blitz until smooth!
