Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup
Updated: May 4
Have you ever heard of the concept of eating your skincare? This soup is about as close as you will get to doing just that.
Packed with Vitamin A, which has been heralded by dermatologists everywhere as a hero ingredient that preserves a youthful complexion, encourages skin cell turnover and protects the skin against oxidative stress, this soup contains two main ingredients, carrots and sweet potato, that are both locked and loaded with Vitamin A. The below recipe provides you with both a delicious and highly nutritious meal.
2 large washed sweet potatoes (cut off each of the ends)
4 large peeled carrots
1/2 chopped onion
1 tablespoon of curry powder
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 carton of chicken broth measuring approximately 32 Fl Oz/ 946 ml. Water can also be used as a substitute
Salt, pepper and cumin to taste
Start by adding 3 tablespoons of olive oil to your pot, allow this to heat up. Follow this with 1/2 a chopped onion, mix this in until the onions become translucent. Add one tablespoon of curry powder and mix all together. Take your sweet potatoes and peeled carrots and add these into the pot. Immediately pour 1 carton of chicken broth over the contents of your pot. Make sure that the liquid is level to the contents and is able to just cover all of your ingredients. Should it be required feel free to add water until you reach the right level so that your ingredients are fully submerged. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste. Leave your ingredients to boil for 20-25 minutes. As a test, use a fork and push it through the sweet potatoes. Make sure that your fork can enter easily through both sides. That way you know that your sweet potato is cooked. Once they are ready take your pot off boil and break the sweet potatoes down into smaller chunks by cutting them into pieces with a fork and knife. Once this has been done, take a ladle and transfer the contents of your pot into a blender. Blend your ingredients together and then serve. This recipe fills around 4 standard bowls of soup. It can also be refrigerated and enjoyed the next day.
