This soup is inspired by my sister’s soup recipe (with her permission of course!); I don’t like it quite as spicy as she does (my spice tolerance isn’t great!) so I left out some spices so it’s only left with a simple kick.


Ingredients:


- A few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

- 2 vegetable stock cubes (in 1½ hot water)

- 1 large brown onion

- 1 teaspoon of ginger

- 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs

- Sprinkle of salt

- Sprinkle of black pepper

- 2 tablespoons of garlic powder

- 2 tablespoons chilli flakes

- 2 large sweet potatoes

- 2 medium white potatoes

- 2 carrots

- 400ml tin of full fat coconut milk


Method


1. First, prepare your ingredients; peel, chop and dice your onion, sweet potatoes and potatoes.


2. Heat up some oil in a deep pan, and fry your onions until soft. Add in your chopped vegetables and mix with the onion so they are coated in a little oil.


3. Add your spices and mix again. Fry on a low heat for a minute or two.


4. Next, add your stock mixture and boil for ten minutes; after, add your coconut milk and boil for a further ten minutes.


5. When all veg is soft, use a hand blender to create a smooth soup. Add a little bit more water if you want a runnier soup, as it can be quite thick.


6. Serve with your favourite bread!
