Ingredients:

  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 thumb-sized chunk of ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced (this is definitely hot enough for my family, but you can add more/less depending on taste)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, unpeeled and sliced
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 50g goji berries (brings a delicious sweetness to the soup and a lovely contrast to the chilli)
  • 1 ltr vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Dried chilli flakes or natural yoghurt to serve

Method:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large casserole pan on the hob and add the onions, garlic, ginger, chilli and turmeric. Cook on a medium heat until soft, then add the potato, mushrooms and goji berries. Stir really well before adding the stock.
  2. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potato is soft. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Whizz with a hand blender or jug blender until you have a gorgeously smooth and amazingly yummy soup.
  4. Sprinkle with dried chilli flakes if you like your soup a little spicier. Swirl some natural yoghurt on top if you like your soup a little cooler! Enjoy….
