Butternut and sweet potato soup is a classic. It's comfort in a bowl. Here's my take on this very easy to make soup. 

What You'll Need - Serves 4 

  • 1 Large Butternut (About 250g) 
  • 1 Medium Sweet Potato (About 150g) 
  • 1 White Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves 
  • 2 Bay Leaves 
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric
  • 1 Tsp Paprika 
  • 3 Cups Vegetable or Chicken Stock 
  • 250ml Cream 
  • Salt & Pepper 
  • 1 Tsp Butter
  • Sour Cream or Feta for serving 

Prep - 10 Minutes 

  • Roughly peel and chop your butternut and sweet potato 
  • Chop your onions 
  • Peel garlic cloves

Let's Get Cooking - 30 Minutes 

  • In a large pot, place the butternut, sweet potato, onion and garlic 
  • Add the bay leaves, paprika and turmeric 
  • Season with salt & pepper 
  • Add the stock and boil until the sweet potato and butternut is cooked - about 20 minutes
  • Once cooked, remove the bay leaves 
  • In a blender, add the cooked butternut and sweet potato straight from the pot. Add in all the onions, garlic and remainder of the stock. 
  • Add a teaspoon of butter and the cream. Blend until smooth 
  • Serve and Enjoy
