Well I certainly crashed & burned after Wednesday this week!
Working in the cold & rain combined with a bit of excess at too many 40ths over the past few weeks has resulted in a run down & poorly me just in time for School Holidays!
I have been needing lots of soups & broths (& cups of tea – I am part English after all) to keep me going & this Curried Kumara Soup adapted from a recipe by Angela Casley in Viva Magazine really hit the spot as it is easy & tasty:
You will need 2 onions, 4-6 garlic cloves, 2T grated ginger, 3-4T mild curry powder, 1kg kumara, 1.5l stock (I used vegetable but a chicken broth would also work), a can of coconut cream & the leaves from a big bunch of silverbeet.
Add the sliced onions, chopped or crushed garlic & grated ginger to a pot with some olive oil. Cook until softened then add the curry powder & continue cooking until fragrant.
Add chopped kumara & stock & simmer for 25min until the kumara is soft. Add the coconut cream & chopped silverbeet for the last few minutes until silverbeet is wilted & then blend the soup until smooth.
Another awesome soup that is great after an over indulgent weekend is the Eat Your Greens Detox Soup from The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon as it’s packed with detoxifying & immunity boosting ingredients. I would highly recommend this vegan cookbook, you can find the soup recipe here:
