Took Sherlock my dog to the vets this morning for his yearly booster jab. He also got weighed and is a kilo heavier than last years weigh in. Oops! Looks like we're both on the healthy road : ) At least the bill at the vets was not too painful, £35.80 so I'm happy with that.
I hate wasting any food so this morning I am using up some sweet potatoes that have been lurking in my utility room since the beginning of November! Guess sweet potatoes are like normal potatoes, they keep very well if stored in the right conditions. Don't even know why I bought them. I'm not that keen on them and none of the family are either.
So today I have made,
SPICY SWEET POTATO SOUP
1 Tbsp oil
Ginger, grated (however much you like)
2 cloves garlic, grated
800g Sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 Tbsp garam masala
2 tsp curry powder
1 chilli, seeds removed & chopped
1 litre veg stock
salt & pepper
Heat oil in a pan and add onion . cook over a low heat for 5 minutes.
Add ginger, garlic, spices, chilli and sweet potatoes. Stir & cook for a minute.
Add stock and cook until potato is cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
Blend all ingredients then add milk. warm through and season to taste.
