Recipe :: Sweet Potato, Carrot and Peanut Butter Soup

I recently stumbled upon a wonderful recipe book by Sarah Raven – the Good Good Food recipe book.

Good Good Food by Sarah RavenIt’s one of those books that as I start to browse through I find more and more temptation as I turn the pages.  I’ve started to add in small sticky notes to mark the pages that appeal to my taste buds and it’s beginning to look like a hedgehog having a ‘bad hair day’ – there are moments when I wonder whether it would make more sense, and involve fewer sticky notes, to mark the pages of recipes that I’m not tempted by!

It was a lovely bright, frosty day yesterday and it felt like the perfect weather for a warming soup with fresh bread, so after a riffle through the sticky notes I found the recipe I was looking for ….

Sweet potato, carrot and peanut butter soup

After a bit of a flurry and hasty trip to my local Co-op store (as I lined up all of the ingredients I found I was missing the coconut milk) the cooking commenced.

And the verdict is … it’s delicious!

We had seconds and thirds.

It is surprisingly filling and the various flavours meld together (I’ve never put peanut butter and coconut milk into a soup recipe before).  The ginger and chilli give it a lovely warming kick without it being too ‘spicy hot’.

We munched it with some warm focaccia (thank you bread-maker!) and it is on its way to being one of our favourite winter warmer recipes.

This would also make wonderful warming snack while out and about carried in a flask.

This flavoursome recipe can be found in the Good Good Food book itself and also on the Cooked website:

or on the Sarah Raven website (although this version uses olive oil whereas the recipe I used has rapeseed oil instead – I’m sure it will be equally delicious though!)
