Curried Two Potato Soup

Yup, it’s cold!

I wanted soup and only had one fairly large sweet potato.  I didn’t think that would be enough to make a good pot of soup with so I grabbed a couple of medium sized white potatoes I had and used them too.

WHAMMO…..Two potato soup!

I added some curry, turmeric and some cayenne pepper just to add some more heat.

I must say, this soup turned out better than I had anticipated…so I thought I’d share it with you all.

Ingredients:

  • one medium sized sweet potato
  • two medium sized white potatoes
  • half a white onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (make this a healthy dose to make sure the potatoes are covered)
  • 6 cups of water or broth (I used water this time and it was very thick and creamy anyhow)
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Method:

  1. In a large pot, put in your olive oil on medium heat.
  2. Cut up the onion and put into the heated oil. Stir and cook to soften the onion.
  3. Once the sweet potato and white potato are peeled and cubed, toss them into the pot with the onions.  Stir to combine with the onions.
  4. Put in the spices.  Stir and coat the potatoes.
  5. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes on medium heat.
  6. Add in the water or broth. Stir.
  7. Continue to cook on medium/high until a smooth boil.
  8. Turn heat down to low/medium and cook until the potatoes are soft. This took about 20 minutes.  I also like to leave the lid off for this part to evaporate a little water if I think there is too much.
  9. Once the potatoes are cooked, take off heat.
  10. Let is cool a bit before using immersion blender or pouring into a blender to smooth out the chunks of potato.

All that is left now is to make a yummy piece of toast or bagel (that is what I had last night) and enjoy.  The little kick of cayenne will definitely keep the heat going.

Hope you all enjoy this souper easy recipe!  Doh!
