Description

This Thai sweet potato and carrot soup is filled with beautiful tangy flavours and combined with a nutty side to bring you a sold dish that can be served hot on those winter days or cold/warm in the summer! Add a slice of warm sourdough and you have yourself dish filled with love.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 23 inches minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon red Thai curry paste
  • 1-litre vegetable stock (1-litre hot water with 2 vegetable stock cubes)
  • 1 big spoon on peanut butter
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to season

And one large stew/soup pot!


Instructions

  1. Melt the coconut oil in the pot on a low to medium heat
  2. Cook the onions for 5 minutes to soften them.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger, stirring for a few minutes.
  4. Add the red Thai curry paste for another few minutes.
  5. Boil the kettle and add your stock cubes and peanut butter to the hot water until they are combined.
  6. Add the vegetable stock to the pan along with your chopped carrots and sweet potatoes.
  7. Put the lid on the pan and let simmer on a low to medium head for 20 minutes or until the carrots and sweet potatoes are soft. A good test is to pop a fork in them and see if you can remove easily.
  8. Once soft. Let the pan cool slightly, perhaps 5 minutes, and then proceed to add the mix to a blender to… blend! I use a Ninja food processor but you can also get a hand blender to blend in the pan!
  9. Depending on the consistency you like, assess the soup and if it’s too thick, add some water. If it’s too thin… well you can either add another ingredient like kale/cook-off some extra carrots or sweet potato to blend in! If you’ve followed this recipe, you shouldn’t need to do the latter!
  10. Voila!

Notes

  • If you have some coconut milk to hand, this is a lovely addition to cream up the soup!
  • If you have some nuts you could crush them / cook them off in a pan and add to the top to present nicely / add a little crunch
  • A wedge of lime always compliments this soup nicely so perhaps pop some on the table when serving
  • If you’re allergic to nuts, you can make this without the peanut butter!
  • Serve with some fresh, warm sourdough!

1. Melt the coconut oil in the pot on a medium heat

8. Add the 1 litre of vegetable stock to the pot and give everything a good stir before raising the heat and bringing the liquid to a boil.

8. Once boiling, reduce to medium heat and let the sweet potatoes cook through. Takes 25-35 minutes!
