My favourite soups are mostly thick ones.
On the menu tonight is sweet potato and caramelised onion flavoured with smoked paprika.
Here is my easy recipe.
SMOKEY BAKED SWEET POTATO AND CARAMELISED ONION SOUPPrint Recipe
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 2 cups of onions
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1/2 cup of water
- 2 tablespoons of smoked paprika
- 1 litre of vegetable stock
- Lite salt / no salt
- Black pepper
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into small cubes.
Steam or boil for 10 minutes. Remove from pot, cover with smoked paprika then transfer to an air fryer or oven pre-heated at 180 degrees celsius for 15 minutes.
While this is happening, place the garlic and onions into a non-stick pan at high heat. DO NOT ADD OIL. It is not necessary. Cook until the onions sweat right down and become soft. Add 1/2 cup of water and mix with onions. You will see the caramelisation occur in front of your eyes. Cook for a few more minutes then remove from the heat.
Place the sweet potato, caramelised onions and vegetable stock into a soup maker. Add a shake of Lite Salt/No Salt and cracked black pepper. Cook on the blend setting. If you don't have a soup maker you can use a pot on the stove and use a stick blender to combine the ingredients. After 15 minutes your soup is ready.
Garnish with caramelised onions and serve with buttery sourdough toast.
