Thirty minutes to soup

One sick little girl, who doesn’t want mum to do anything but cuddle means not much is getting done today. Even Cinderella didn’t work, I tried to sneak off and make soup but just as I was sweating the onions I heard I little voice, “mum, I need you”. So, hoping for the best I threw everything in and turned it down to simmer and settled down to see Cinderella get the makeover of a lifetime and fall in love with the prince of her dreams.

smokey tomato and sweet potato soup
2 onions diced
3 garlic cloves crushed
2 large sweet potatoes chopped into cubes
500g passata
500ml chicken stock
500ml vegetable stock
2 tsp smoked paprika
Bunch of fresh thyme
Sweat the onions in olive oil till soft. Add the garlic and gently cook for a minute. Then add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer for twenty minutes or until the sweet potato is soft. Take out the thyme stalk and blend the soup. If it’s a little thick add some water and don’t forget to season.
