Spicy Swede Soup
A simple, easy to make soup made with a range of spices. Thanks to Charlotte T.
5oog (approx.) of swede, peeled and cubed
1 medium sized onion, chopped
2 tbs oil (of your choice)
750ml (approx.) of hot stock (vegetable or chicken)
2 good teaspoons of following ground up spice mixture. It is called Phyl’s Masala.
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Clove
1 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Cumin
I go to a filling station shop, buy larger quantities, and have them put into the same jam jar.
- Gently fry the onion in the oil until translucent with a lid on the pan.
- Add the spice mixture and continue to gently fry until you smell the aroma of spices.
- Add the swede and fry for a couple of minutes moving the mixture around in the pan so that it doesn’t stick and the swede gets coated in the spice and onion mixture.
- Add the stock. Bring to a gentle boil and cover. Gently simmer for approx 30 minutes or until the swede is cooked when tested with a fork.
- Turn off the heat and let it cool down a bit. Put it into blender/smoothie maker in batches and then return to the pan to gently reheat. Taste it and add salt/pepper if needed. Then serve.
