Warm earthy flavours are the secret to this comforting soup recipe.

The Perfect Soup Recipe For A Rainy Weekend

 

INGREDIENTS

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

2 Tablespoons coconut oil, or butter alternative

2 red onions, diced

Pinch of salt

2 Tablespoons freshly grated ginger

1.5 litres vegetable stock

1 block silken tofu, chopped

1 Tablespoon soy sauce or tamari

1 Tablespoon maple syrup

Juice of half a lime

  • Melt the coconut oil or butter alternative in a deep saucepan. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and sweat gently over low heat for five minutes or until soft and translucent. Stir in the ginger, then add the sweet potatoes and stir again.
  • Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Stir in the tofu. Remove from heat and puree the soup in batches in a blender or a food processor. Strain the soup through a sieve back into the saucepan and reheat gently.
  • Add the soy sauce or tamari, the maple syrup and the lime juice. Taste and adjust these seasonings – it should have a deep sweetness with a delicate spice from the ginger, an earthiness from the soy/tamari, and a slight edge from the lime juice. Add more of any of these ingredients if necessary to find the perfect balance. 
  • This recipe is easily doubled and freezes well!
