Sweet Potato for Souper-Saturday…

“You can cultivate lots of bad habits over a lifetime,
but eating sweet potatoes every day isn’t among them.”
-Paula Martinac
I love the creamy texture and spicy-sweet flavour of sweet potatoes.
Add in chilli and fresh lime for a super soup! 
Only a few ingredients in this soup, but it works!
Let’s infuse that oil with chilli.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 small red chilli
  • 1 l chicken stock
  • 1/2 lime, zested and juiced
  • Grinding of sea salt, black pepper and cayenne


Soften the onion and garlic in the chilli oil.

Where would I be without my stick blender?

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the chilli and warm gently to infuse the oil.
  2. Now add the onion and garlic, then cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Pour in the stock and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, then blitz with a hand blender until smooth.
  6. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  7. Ladle the soup into bowls, then top with lime zest and juice.


Season to taste!


For me, the lime juice and zest are star essential; instant zing!


This soup will not disappoint!
