I sometimes go to the Coles up the road on the way home from work and just have a look to see if there is any fresh produce marked down. Tuesday, a fortnight ago, I did just that and found 3 trays of organic Beetroot, 2 trays of organic Sweet Potato and a big bag of small apples that had been marked down dramatically. So the Beetroot went into the Borsch (recipe coming soon), most of the apples were turned into Caramelised Apples for dessert and the Sweet Potatoes and 2 of the apples become this soup. It was still kinda crazy hot here but we totally enjoyed this hearty soup. Again it would be ideal on a cold Wintery night with loads of buttery toast.
I served this with Greek Yoghurt and finely chopped Coriander on top.
|Ingredients for Curried Sweet Potato Soup|

|Peel and cut Sweet Potato into chunks|
|Same with the Apples|
|Add Sweet Potato and Apples to the pan and coat in curry mixture|
|Add Stock and bring to a simmer|
|Cook until soft, then blitz until smooth|
|Finely chop Coriander (this is Sawtooth or Perennial Coriander)|
|Serve with Greek Yoghurt and chopped coriander |
1 brown onion, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, grated on a microplane
3 teaspoons curry powder
1 kg orange Sweet Potato, peeled and cut into chunks
4 cups Chicken Stock (I made mine from Massel stock cubes)
2 apples, what ever variety is in the fruit bowl, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup coconut milk (I use Ayam Powdered Coconut Milk,when a small amount of coconut milk is called for)
Heat some oil in a large saucepan and saute onion and garlic for about 5 minutes
Add curry powder and stir until fragrant
Add Sweet Potato and apples, and stir to coat in curry mixture
Pour over Chicken Stock and bring to a simmer then turn down to low and let cook away for 30 minutes or until soft
Using a food processor or stick blender, puree until smooth and silky. If using a food processor return soup to saucepan and heat through on low heat. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed
Serve with Greek Yoghurt, chopped Coriander and buttered toast
So, tell me, what is your favourite Winter warming Soup?
Have a great day and thanks for reading.
