Recipe: Sweet potato and chorizo soup

This recipe was inspired by a recent trip to Spain...


Ingredients
2 medium/ sweet potatoes, chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 onions, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 tsp curry powder(add more if u like spicy)
2 chicken stock cubes
I used what chorizo I had in fridge but say roughly 250g, diced into cubes
100ml single cream



Method
1) sweat the onion for 2 mins then add garlic for further one, mix in curry powder and add sweet potato and carrot.

2) mix in so all is coated and cook for 2 mins stirring occasionally (mainwhile boil kettle for stock)

3) add stock and bring to boil, then allow to simmer til soft (around 20 mins)

4) fry off all the diced chorizo until crisp, reserving the oil for garnish. Add half chorizo to soup.

5) blitz in/with a blender til smooth and strain through a sieve for silky smooth, adjusting consistency with water if necessary

6) add cream ( taste you might not need it all, I added too much curry and chilli too start haha)

7) serve in bowl, add few bits of the remaining chorizo and drizzle the chorizo oil and cream to serve
