Carrot, Ginger & Sweet Potato Soup

Following on from the honey roasted carrots I posted earlier in the week, here’s a recipe in which they work wonderfully.  This soup is made with carrots, ginger and sweet potato and brings me so much comfort on a cold day.

The last week or so winter has been getting to me. All I want to do is eat soup and get warm and cosy. I was so happy on my yoga teacher training course, on top of being completely immersed in yoga I was able to enjoy a warm heated studio all day. It was bliss. Now I’m back in the office and most days I sit there with a fleece, scarf and fingerless gloves on!

That said, compared to the Polar Vortex in the USA, London isn’t really that cold. I hope all of you suffering from cold weather are keeping warm and eating lots of soup to make you happy!

Mostly, I like my soup to be thick, packed with vegetables and loaded with flavour. For that this soup is a real winner and absolutely delicious. It’s made with honey roasted carrots and sweet potatoes seasoned with paprika and cayenne pepper. The vegetables are blended with a beautiful vegetable stock that includes lots of ginger and other yummy spices. This soup is so creamy, it’s hard to believe there isn’t a drop of cream or milk in it.

If you’re looking for a soup that’s incredibly comforting and delicious, I promise you’ll love this!

On that note, I’m off to make to make some more :)
