There seems to be a lot of sweet potatoes in the shops at the moment, so what better time of the year to make a hearty soup!
Ingredients (Serves 4):
- 600gms of sweet potatoes
- 50gms of butter
- ½ large or 1 small onion
- 700ml of decent chicken or vegetable stock
- Heaped dessertspoon of curry paste
- Salt & Pepper to taste.
- Cream (as required)
Peels and chop the veg and heat with the butter and curry paste in a pan for a few minutes. (If using the Thermomix, chop on speed 5 for 6 seconds.)
Add the stock and simmer until soft. (In the Thermomix, 12 mins/speed2/100deg)
Liquidise using a stick blender (Thermomix 1 minute, speed 9)
Salt and Pepper to taste.
I tend to use Balti Paste but any form of curry paste to your preference will do.
Pour into a bowl, add a splash of cream if you want and serve with some warm bread. sit in a chair by a fire and enjoy!
