Sweet Potato Soup

Made Fast and Easy!
A lot of positive feedback (Including from myself), even from those who don't really like Sweet Potatoes :)

We are making the soup in a 5 litres pot.


- 2 Litres of water

- Olive oil (For sauteing)

- 1 Big Sweet Potato (About 800g, peel it and cut it into large pieces)

- 8-9 Average potatoes (About the size of the Sweet Potato, peel and cut them into large pieces)

- 5-6 Jerusalem artichoke lubes (Half of the Sweet Potato, wash clean and cut them into large pieces.)

- 3 Average Carrots (peel and cut them into large pieces)

- 1 Big Onion (Slice and dice)

- 5 Garlic Cloves (Slice and dice)

- 1 Tablespoon of salt

- A couple branches of Basil, Oregano and Thymus

- 1 Teaspoon of Hawaij

- 1 Teaspoon of Sweet Paprika


- Heat up the pot

- Oil the pot and add the onion dices,
after about a minute add the large pieces of carrots
After a couple minutes, add the spices, fry it together for about 5 seconds then add the water.
Right after that add the Sweet potato, Potatoes and Jarusalem Artichokes (that were previously cut into large pieces.)

- Once it starts boiling, add salt and set the heat on average

- After 20-30 minutes, check the softness of the vegetables, if they are soft, add the garlic and herbs.

- Turn up the heat, once it's boiling, turn the heat off and let it brew for 5-10 minutes.

- After that, blend it all together and wait for 15 more minutes, and you're done :)

Enjoy :)
