Easy sweet potato soupAn easy and quick soup to make for a cold winter's day. You only need to chop things very roughly as at the end you just blend it up with a hand blender or a food processor. Have a big batch in the fridge and just had a bowl - so delicious. I usually only make it with potato but adding sweet potato completely changes the taste.

  • Leeks - 1-2 stalks depending on how thick they are
  • Potatoes - 1-2 regular sized (I only used a tiny one in this recipe)
  • Sweet potatoes - 1-2 regular sized (as they are usually larger than potatoes
  • 2 Onions
  • Chili pepper to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and chop up everything roughly (remember to peel the potatoes)
Throw into a pot cover it all with water and let boil.
After 20-30min test to see if your potatoes are cooked through to the core - if they are then voila your soup is ready.
Use a hand blender to blend it all together add salt, pepper and chili or other spices as you wish.
Serve with crusty bread.

So simple!

Happy Saturday!
