Gone are summery days with the craving for cold and crispy salads, and very welcome is the autumn and with it the craving for something warm and comforting while snuggeling up in the sofa. I’ve been asked to share healthy recipes and now that autumn is here I can finally share one of my favourite soups, perfect as a little meal in the end of the day.
While normal potatoes sadly don’t boost weight loss, sweet potatoes on the other hand do and they are really delicious as well! Sweet potatoes are a newly discovered superfood which are implemented in all kinds of weight loss diets for its nutritional benefits and low calorie content. In fact, sweet potatoes actually boost weight loss while ensuring you lots of beneficial nutrients. This soup only takes about 30 minutes, is very easily done, packed with nutrients and low in calories, and super cost effective as well.
For a serving for two, you’ll need:
♥ 2 sweet potatoes (200g), diced
♥ 2 carrots (200g), diced
♥ 1/2 onion (75g), finely chopped
♥ 2 garlic cloves
♥ Curry of your choice (I like to use Indian Vindaloo for that extra kick)
♥ Vegetable broth, with about 5dl water – but you can add more or less dependin gon the consistency you like.

1. Heat a bit of olive oil in a deep pan and toss in onion, then saute until softend. Add garlic, and sprinkle on cumin and curry of your tasting. Let cook for 1 minute while getting the broth ready.
3. Add carrots, sweet potatoes and broth, and bring to a boil. Let simmer until the vegetables are soft and easily “mashable”. 10-15 minutes is probably enough.
5. Mash to a puré, and bring to a blender until you get a smooth texture.
Finish of with a drizzle of coriander on top, and curl yourself up in the sofa with your feel good vibrant metabolism boosting nutrient bomb :)
Bon Appétit :)
