There’s just something warm and comforting about the smooth texture of sweet potato in a  soup.

Further to that, you’ll also get a whopping dose of vitamin A as well as a healthy dose of potassium too.


Making soup is literally the only time I bother peeling sweet potatoes – I love them roasted in their skins! You could leave the skins on for this if you wanted to but the soup wouldn’t have the same smooth texture and the colour would be more dull.

Serves 4

I used coconut oil as that’s what I had to hand but you could use any vegetable oil that you like.

This soup is lovely served with a nice dollop of natural yoghurt which will also provide more protein and calcium for you too.
