Hot red pepper and sweet potato soup


This warming soup has a lovely hot colour and is packed full with vitamins. Sweet potatoes are a great low GI food so you won’t have hunger pangs for a long time after this! This is a very tangy and spicy “grown -up” soup so you can even serve it at a dinner party but to me this is just the ideal quick and healthy family fare that you want on a cold evening.

Ingredients list:
1 seeded red pepper
Half a red chilli
2 medium sweet potatoes
2 shallots
1 carrot
1 litre of vegetable stock (2 cubes of Maggi)
1 Tbsp of ground cumin and some cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt

Put everything in a deep pan and bring to the boil. Cook until soft, adding water if necessary. Blitz until smooth. It will be thick and creamy but not too dense.
Serve with a twist of pepper mill and a pinch of cinnamon in each plate.
