Roasted Sweet Potato Soup
It may be summer here in Melbourne but the last few days has seen a cool spell which has made me crave a nice hearty soup. I find roasted sweet potato soup is a yummy alternative to my usual pumpkin soup. For an added change I’ve added a dollop of yogurt to make it more creamy and a sprinkle of crunchy pepitas for texture.
Over this last month we have seen daily high temperatures of anywhere from 19ºC to 41ºC. Luckily our northern hemisphere family visiting Melbourne for our wedding a few weeks ago missed the extreme ends of the temperature range. Unfortunately most of them are already back home in the big freeze.
I suppose like most people the food I feel like cooking and eating is heavily weather dependant. Hot weather = easy salads, cold weather = rich comfort food. This Roasted Sweet Potato Soup is ready in about 40 mins including prep time, so can be done on a weeknight without any real trouble or mess.
It also makes a great work lunch and freezes really well. Why not use the recipe calculator below and whip yourself up a batch to store?
