(Vegan) Tumeric Winter Spiced Sweet Potato Soup

Hello Beans

As the season is turning in the UK I find myself wrapping up in warm blankets and craving hot drinks and of course soup. It’s still technically Summer in the UK but we live in England so we hardly get a summer in the first place.

This recipe is for a winter spiced sweet potato soup. This is perfect for fall and you could also swap the sweet potato for pumpkin to make it even more so.

Ingredients

1 Large Sweet potato
2 Medium Carrots
4 Sweet peppers or 1 yellow Bell pepper
1 Onion
2 Cloves garlic
1tbsp Parsley
1tbsp Oregano
1tsp Chilli flakes
1tsp Chilli powder
2x Vegetable Stock Cubes
2tbsp Tumeric
1/2tsp Cinnamon
2tbsp Nutritional yeast (optional)
1tbsp Nigella Seeds (optional)
Salt & Pepper

Method (4 servings)

Chop up all your vegetables and fry in water or a little oil for 10 minutes.

Add all of your spices, herbs and vegetable stock. Add boiling water to cover. The more water used the thinner your soup will be so it’s up to you.

Simmer on a low heat for 45mins to an hour or until the veg is soft.

Next. Either place your veg into a blender with a little of the sauce of use a hand blender to whizz up your soup. Blend it less if you prefer more chunks in yours.

A definate essential meal for colder months in my opinion. The combination of the sweet potato and the spices scream winter warming. Very yummy and as always very simple to do.
