I love soup and now we are going into Autumn I feel I may make some more homemade soup but I started off experimenting with a Sweet Potato and Chilli Soup. You will have seen this recipe if you read my other blog
www.multicookingmum.wordpress.com but it is gluten free and good for Slimming World followers too so I thought I would share it here.
My other blog features my experiences with a multi cooker so this soup is made with this but you don't have to have a multi cooker, just a saucepan will do to simmer the ingredients until cooked.
It was very tangy and spicy as I may have added quite a bit of chilli but then I like spicy, you may have to play around with your chilli as everyone prefers a different level so add a little at a time and keep tasting until you get to your personal preference.
Anyway I hope you enjoy......
3 sweet potatoes
2 small onions
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp garlic puree
1 tsp chilli puree
2 vegetable stock cubes made up with 2 pints of water
1 tsp paprika
Fry light spray or cooking oil
Peel and chop the potatoes and onions
Put all the ingredients into the multi cooker bowl and select the SOUP programme
Select cooking time to 30 minutes
Heat a large saucepan with some of the fry light spray or oil, put all ingredients in, stir together and leave to simmer for 30 minutes
Check and taste it is to your liking.
liquidise for a smooth textured soup
and serve with some gluten free toast or bread.
It's so easy to make soup and great for us gluten free people as we know exactly what ingredients are in there. A lot of the tinned and fresh soups in the shops contain wheat as sometimes flour is used as a thickener so always read the labels if buying from a supermarket. If you want to make a thicker soup cornflour can be used to keep it gluten free.
Give it a try and see what you think, I'm off to make another batch as it's so filling and may well pop some in the freezer ready for a chilly day.
