Spiced Potato Soup

This recipe uses sweet potatoes as well as standard ones, and is yummy!


1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions
1 medium parsnip
2 medium potatoes
1 medium sweet potato
1 leek
2 tsp mild curry powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground ginger
salt and pepper
1 handful of split red lentils


This is good with some fresh coriander too.



Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Roughly chop the onions, add them to the pan and let them cook for a few minutes.

Chop the parsnip, potatoes, sweet potato and leek and add to the pan. Add the curry powder, turmeric, ground ginger, a pinch of salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper, and mix well.

Add enough boiling water to cover, bring back to the boil, add a handful of split red lentils and then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Whizz the soup in a food processor, adding a touch more water if required, and serve. Easy!
