SWEET POTATO, LIME & PEANUT SOUP
Following on from my previous post about sweet potato here is an easy soup recipe. If you have a nut allergy substitute peanuts with sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
1kg Sweet Potato (peeled and chopped into small chunks)
2 Leeks (sliced thinly)
Fresh Ginger thumb size (grated)
1.5 litres vegetable stock
2 teaspoons of sweet miso paste (add to your vegetable stock)
A handful of dry Shitake mushrooms (add to your veg stock)
2 tablespoons soya sauce
2 tablespoons of good quality peanut butter
1 lime for zest and juice.
2 teaspoons of coconut oil.
A handful of toasted sunflower & pumpkin seeds
Prepare your ingredients then we're ready to start cooking.
Fry the leeks in coconut oil until tender.
Add the sweet potato and ginger, fry on a low heat for about 5 mins.
Add the vegetable stock containing, miso and shitake mushrooms and bring to the boil, then simmer on a low heat for 20 mins.
Remove from heat and add the juice of 1 lime, soya sauce, and peanut butter.
Blitz with a hand blender adding more lime, soya sauce, or peanut butter to suit your palate.
Serve topped with a sprinkle of lime zest and toasted sunflower & pumpkin seeds.
I added shitake mushrooms and sweet miso paste to give a greater depth of flavour. The great thing about soup recipes is that you can make them your own by adding and taking away ingredients to suit your palate. Have a play around and enjoy...
