Ingredients:2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes
500ml veg stock
1 tin coconut milk
1 tbsp tomato purée
twist of black pepper
½ tsp salt
toasted seeds or nuts
a swirl of plant-based yoghurt
pinch of chilli flakes (if you like some spice!)
- Chop the onion into small dice, and chop the garlic up finely.
- Add the onion to a large pan with the olive oil and sauté for 7-8 minutes on a low heat. Add in the spices and garlic, and fry for a further few minutes.
- Next add the sweet potato, veg stock, coconut milk and tomato purée to the pan and simmer for 15 minutes, covered, until the sweet potato is soft. Season with salt and pepper.
- Turn off the heat, then blitz using a hand blender, until smooth and creamy.
- Add more water if you’d like it thinner.
- To serve, top with the toasted seeds and plant-based yoghurt.
