This was a really hard month for me! Very glad to have finished it!


Sweet potato and orange soup

Posted: 12 September 2010 in Recipes

This is one of my favourite soups. I think it was originally from the Covent Garden soup recipe book.

  • 20g butter (I use a tiny bit of oil)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 500g sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 200g potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 700ml vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 150ml milk
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook the onion in the butter (or oil) until soft, without colouring.
Add the sweet potatoes, potatoes, orange juice, stock and ground coriander. Cover and bring to the boil. Simmer until the vegetables are tender.
Cool a little, then blend. Taste for seasoning and serve with creme fraiche if required.
