Curried Sweet potato and Coconut soup

Velvet Rose Wool Blanket

The best thing about this soup is it’s all bunged in the pan together and the oven does all the hard work, it’s rich, creamy, lightly spiced and so moreish. My husband called this “the best soup he’s ever tasted”…here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

2 large sweet potatoes chopped into 1 inch peices

1 white onion chopped

2 carrots chopped the same as the sweet potatoes

1 clove garlic

1 thumbsized peace fresh ginger roughly chopped

5 teaspoons medium curry powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 tin coconut milk

500ml Chicken stock

Fresh coriander

Spring onion

Natural Yogurt

1 flatbread

Olive oil

Preheat the oven to 180

Put the sweet potato, onion, carrot, garlic and ginger into a large cast iron oven proof pan. Add the salt, pepper, cumin, curry powder, and a drizzle of olive oil. Thoroughly coat all the veg in the oil and spices.

Put the lid on and cook in the oven for 40 minutes or until the sweet potato is soft and mashable.

Place the pan on the stove top, over a low heat, and add the chicken stock, coconut milk and half the coriander.

Using a stick blender, blitz the soup until smooth being mindful to blend the chunks of ginger (they don’t soften in the oven very well so need a good blitz).

Ladle the soup into bowls, and top with a dollop of yogurt, chopped spring onion and more fresh coriander.

Cuddle up under your favourite blanket (which I highly recommend you order from Country Mouse) and enjoy!

Lots of love

As many of you will know, I am rather passionate (obvs only quietly passionate because I am not at all a dramatic person at all thank you) about wool. A natural, sustainable fibre that regulates temperature and is entirely biodegradable and it’s super soft. Happy snuggly days!

Country Mouse are equally passionate about this wonderful resource:

In a world where everything is fast, chaotic and synthetics are literally everywhere, wrapping up in a wool throw encourages you to slow down. Snuggling under a wool throw with a good book is so wholesome and comforting. It’s like having a warm hug.

Country Mouse is committed to sourcing high quality wool blankets and throws. This includes supporting Britain’s weaving heritage and extends to their European mill that weaves their Swedish wool throws.

All their wool blankets are woven using traditional methods and the textile mills control the entire process from the raw fleece to the finished product.

The mills that they work with have history and heritage woven into them and they have been making textiles for several hundred years.

It’s knowing and understanding the story behind our wool blankets and throws that we find so fascinating. Combined with contemporary designs and colourways brings the best of a heritage product into our modern homes.

The Swedish mill that we work with has an amazing collection of recycled wool throws, eco wool throws and Gotland wool throws. Each different type of wool has a different feel and lustre to it. We love that their designs are rooted in the history of Sweden.

Our collections include merino wool throws (the softest wool), Swedish wool blankets (made by Klippan), eco wool blankets (where the wool is fully traceable and free from pesticides) as well as recycled wool blankets (which require less energy and conserves natural resources). There really is a wool blanket for everyone.

Our merino wool throws are woven in Scotland, again, this is a traditional and historic mill. I just love the fact that our wool throws have history and tradition that is woven into them.
