The best twist on a classic potato & leek soup

With so many soups to choose from and so many different cuisines to choose them from, why amend a classic? Simple, we are looking at classics that people love and adore and adding the ingredients that we know and that are growing in popularity for people who want to eat food with massive health benefits. A lot of classics were designed in times where ingredients were only found locally to them so it seems logical to us to infuse more healthy global ingredients available to us now to create new favourites. Most of the work was done years ago such was the case with leek and potato soup but here we hope we’ve added something memorable as well.

How to make spiced sweet potato soup

To make this spiced sweet potato soup is really simple. The preparation is minimal and the oven, the hob, and the blender does the work for you.

The base of this soup is simple – sweet potatoes, carrots, leeks, and vegetable stock – then you jazz it up with super healthy and anti-cancer herbs (coriander, lemongrass, Thai holy basil), anti-inflammatory spices (turmeric), roasted garlic and coconut milk. So let’s get cooking.
