Hearty Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Hearty Sweet Potato Soup Recipe
This soup recipe is easy to make and very budget friendly.Soups are always a great way of using up vegetables that are beginning to go past their best and you don’t want to waste. They’re also easy to make, great to batch cook and a good way of sneaking veggies in to your meal plans.


3 small sweet potatoes (or 2 large)

1 leek

1 red onion

1 carrot

1 teaspoon ground cumin

500ml  chicken or vegetable stock (using a cube is fine)


Roughly chop all the veg

Soften the leek and onion in oil in a large saucepan for a few minutes, then add the cumin and stir though for a minute.

Add the carrot and sweet potato and stir through so combined.

Pour over the stock . If freshly made and hot, then let the soup simmer for twenty minutes until the vegetables are tender. If using chilled stock then bring to the boil first, then lower the heat and simmer.

This can be eaten straight away or portioned into plastic boxes so you’ve an reheat later.

If you like spicy food, this is delicious if you add some flaked chilli or a hefty portion of ground pepper before serving. Likewise you can make it milder with a swirl of yoghurt or sour cream added – great for kids! I like mine with chilli or olive bread.

    I love soups and so do my brood at home. Whatever the weather I’ll make up a batch when it comes into my head. I’ll pin this for when that time comes next:)
