  • 100 g Leeks sliced finely.

  • 50 g Onion sliced finely.

  • 550 g Sweet Potato chopped into small pieces.

  • 10 g Rapeseed Oil.

  • 1 Teaspoon Salt.

  • 1 Teaspoon Finely Ground Pepper.

  • 2 Vegetable Stock Cubes.

  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric.

  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika.

  • 1 Teaspoon Nigella Seeds.

  • 1 Star Anise.

  • Half Lemon.

  • Water to top up to 1600ml Level.

  • 100 ml Cream - Optional


  • Saute the leek and onion with the salt in the rapeseed oil.

  • Add all the other ingredients to the pot, apart from the lemon and the cream.

  • Select the chunky setting. For me, I remove the star anise before blending for a smooth soup.

  • When the soup is finished, squeeze in the lemon juice of half a lemon. I remove the star anise and eat chunky, or as my kids prefer, blended to a smooth puree as in the image.

  • If you are freezing any of this recipe, do so before adding any cream. The soup will be fairly sweet.
