Sweet potato and blood orange soup

sweet potato blood orange soup

There’s nothing better in the first cold days of winter than a hearty soup to warm you up. And even better is a soup that is hot and sweet at once. This lovely soup was made from sweet potatoes and a little blood orange juice which adds amazing flavor to it. If you are not sure if you like ‘sweet’ soups, use half sweet and half regular potatoes – this will make the soup more hearty. By the way: This also makes an amazing starter for a festive dinner! 

You need: 

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 600 ml vegetable stock
  • 100 ml blood orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pinch of garam masala
  • salt
  • vegetable oil

Peal the vegetables and cut into chunks. Heat some vegetable oil in a medium sized pot and gently fry the onion,  garlic and sweet potato for three to five minutes. Add vegetable stock and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add blood orange juice and blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and lemon juice. Enjoy!

Note: This makes three servings.
