It's the time of year again for soup! And here is one that is super easy (3 key ingredients only needed- an onion, sweet potato and a tin of coconut milk). Perfect for those chilly winter days. This one is quite a sweet soup so if you prefer pumpkin or butternut squash it works just as well instead of sweet potato.
Makes: 4-5 bowls
Preparation: Less than 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 white onion, chopped
750g sweet potatoes (2 medium or 1 large roughly) chopped into small chunks
Full can coconut milk
x3 gloves of garlic chopped (optional)
1-2 tsp coriander
1-2 tsp cumin
250 ml milk (or hot water to make it vegan)
A pinch of salt (to taste)
A handful of fresh coriander to finish
Peel and chop the white onion into small pieces
Peel and chop the garlic cloves into small pieces
Heat the oil in a deep saucepan, then soften the onion for 4-5 mins
Stir in the cumin and coriander spices and cook for 1 min more until fragrant.
Add the chopped sweet potato and stir in the coconut and seasoning and cook for 30 minutes on a medium heat or until the sweet potatoes are soft
Cool briefly before whizzing with a stick blender until smooth.
Sprinkle with fresh coriander
Tip- if soup mix is thick and milk or water!
