Coconut and Sweet, Sweet Potato Soup

This soup has a bit of a summery feel to it, due to the zesty lime and of course the coconut. It is so cleansing and is a really happy soup. My children love it as well. 

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Dollop of coconut oil

1 onion finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped or crushed

Thumb size piece of ginger, finely chopped

1 lime

3-4 sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped

600 ml vegetable stock or chicken if you like meat

400g can coconut milk

3-4 handfuls of spinach

Can of white kidney beans/ haricot beans

Salt and pepper 

Method:

Heat the dollop of coconut oil over a low heat, then add the onions, garlic, ginger and rind from the lime. Stir occasionally for 5 minutes until the onion is softened.

Add the sweet potato and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the stock, coconut milk, lime juice and season.

Simmer gently for 15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked.

Put in a blender, if you’re serving to children blend the spinach aswell. But if you’re not add the spinach afterwards.

For extra goodness add some white beans of your choice, after blending.
