Sweet Potato & Tomato Soup

I for one, don’t like wasting food…What about you….Can you bear to just dispose of it in your bin? I hope the answer is NO!  We work so hard for our money so why throw out vegetables which are looking a little sorry for themselves…..just make one of my simple, no messing SOUPS!”

 

Serves 4 – 6 

Ingredients

  • l large pan with a lid or a large Casserole pan with a lid.
  • 2 Vegetable Stock Cubes or use your own Vegetable Stock which could be the water which you have cooked or steamed your vegetables in.
  • 750ml hot water (only if you are using stock cubes, if you are using stock from cooking vegetables which you have saved, just make to 750ml)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic – crushed
  • 2  medium or 1 large Onion chopped (Red or White – I always use Red Onions)
  • 1 450g tin of chopped tomatoes (I always use the juice from the chopped tomatoes when making up the stock).
  • 400g Sweet Potatoes – chopped into small pieces
  • 100g White Potatoes – chopped into small pieces
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • A sprinkling of mixed herbs

 Method for making the Soup

  1. Heat up the oil in the pan until the oil is hot, then put the onion & garlic in to soften for about 5 minutes, until softened.
  2. Whilst the onions & garlic are softening  make your stock up.
  3. Once the onions & garlic have softened, then put all the other ingredients into your pan (chopped potatoes & the tin of chopped tomatoes giving them a good stir to mix in with the onions & garlic).
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes on a medium heat giving a occasional stir, then pour in the stock, add your salt & pepper, mixed herbs.
  5. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 20 mins until the vegetables soften, during this time, remember to give the mix an occasional stir.
  6. Take the pan off the heat & then either use a Hand Blender or a Jug Blender & blend to your liking.
  7. Serve with some croutons, toast or warm bread.

“This soup is so cheap & quick to make & so nice on a cold day to share with Family or Friend’s…So don’t throw away that potato with the soft skin etc….make use of them & turn your hard-earned pennies into tasty meals”!

  1. I’ll definitely have to give this a go! My Mum recently gave be a top tip for veg that’s gone soft – floppy carrots or parsnips etc. Just leave them in water over night. It’s amazing! They’re good as new the next day! x
