Recipe: Corn and Sweet Potato Soup

The boyfriend made this one for us and it was delish. Make sure you include the lime juice, as it really goes well with this soup. As you can see from below there is a lot of 'optional's. Basially, you can make this soup as flavoursome, spicy, or mild as you like and it will still come out tasty.

What you will need:

1 tbsp oil
1.75 litres of water or veggie stock
2 garlic cloves, crushed (optional)
1  onion, finely chopped (optional)
1 small red chilli, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
2 tsp ground cumin
1 medium sweet potato, diced
1 can corn kernals (about 400g)
lime wedges to serve


If using, fry onion in heated oil, until soft and then add garlic and chilli. Fry for 2 minutes.
Add 1 and a quarter cup veggie stock and simmer for approx. 10 minutes.
Add cumin,  diced sweet potato, stir and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add rest of stock, the corn and simmer for 10 minutes.
Using a hand blender, process the soup but not too thoroughly, so there is still some chunks.
Serve with the lime wedges to squeeze into the soup.
