The warmth of the ginger and lime combined with the sweetness of the maple syrup and the sweet potato gives this soup its complex, deep flavour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
2 red onions, peeled and roughly chopped
himalayan salt
freshly cracked black pepper
8cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
2 litres vegetable stock
60ml tamari soy sauce
90ml pure maple syrup
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons coconut milk, to garnish

Method

  1. Put the coconut oil into a large, heavy-based saucepan, add the onions, along with a pinch of salt and sweat gently over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Now add the ginger, sweet potatoes and toss to coat. Crack some black pepper and sea salt into the saucepan and cook for a further 10 minutes over a medium heat.
  2. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Immediately reduce the heat to a simmer and cook gently for 25 minutes or until the sweet potato begins to fall apart when prodded with a fork. Remove from the heat and leave to stand for 5 minutes, then using a hand-held blender, purée until smooth.
  3. Stir in the tamari, maple syrup and lime juice. It’s at this stage that this soup really becomes your own. Check for seasoning, then adjust the flavouring to your taste using more salt, tamari, lime juice and maple syrup to create a deep, warm, sweet and lightly zingy soup. Spoon over a little coconut milk to serve.
