I was asked to illustrate a recipe for a charity cookbook.
I chose this Sweet Potato Soup recipe as I love making soup, it’s so healthy, tasty, cheap and simple to make. I usually just use what in the fridge, so no two recipes are the same. I like the sweet and savoury feel it has and think the combination of the red pepper takes the edge of the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Enjoy!
Sweet Potato Soup Recipe
2 sweet potatoes (chopped roughly)
1 onion (chopped roughly)
1 red pepper (sliced)
1 garlic clove (roughly chopped)
1 vegetable stock cube
Splash of olive oil
Salt and pepper (optional)
Slowly cook an onion in olive oil for 5/10 minutes. Add the garlic and red peppers for 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and the stock cube and cover with boiled water from the kettle. Bring to the boil then simmer for 40 minutes. Blend with a hand blended.
