Sweet Potato Soup recipe

This soup is deliciously sweet and savoury, all at the same time. Serve it with tortilla crisps or warm crusty bread.


  • 750g sweet potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red chilli
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Knob of butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Finely chop the onion and the chilli, discarding the seeds. Mince the garlic cloves. Peel and roughly chop the sweet potatoes.

  2. Heat the butter in a pan and add the onion, garlic, chilli and dried coriander. Cook them for around ten minutes on a very low heat until soft and tender.

  3. Add the potatoes and cook for a few more minutes. Add the stock and simmer for ten minutes, then transfer everything to a blender and blitz the soup smooth.

  4. Season well and add the paprika before serving.

Substitute half of the sweet potatoes for carrots for an even sweeter soup. You could also garnish it with some finely chopped coriander. This recipe serves four people.
