Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Soup

Nothing says comfort food like home made soup, despite often making tomato soup, using the recipe from the lovely Jorina at Cats & Florals. I fancied something different and when a friend recently mentioned that she’d had roasted red pepper and sweet potato soup,I decided to try it for myself.Cue a trip to google to see what it had to offer,the following recipe from PaleoPot came out on top. Despite using the recipe, I did make modifications to it partly because our slow cooker is smaller than the one used on PaleoPot.

Mr Simples was bought the Argos Value Range 1.5l slow cooker for his birthday whilst at university, it been sat in the cupboards for years unused until this recipe!

What you need

Slow cooker

2-3 average/large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

3 red peppers roasted(I did this in the oven, at 200° Fan for 20 minutes then turning the peppers over to roast for a further 20 minutes)

1 400g can of coconut milk

250ml chicken stock

1 onion, diced

half a teaspoon of black pepper

The PaleoPot recipe uses 2 garlic cloves and half a teaspoon of red pepper flakes both of which I omitted

How to make it

Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker

Turn the slow cooker to high and let it cook for 4 hours, I must confess that I stirred it every hour to check on it

After the 4 hours, blend the soup until desired consistency as some people make prefer a chunkier soup

Eat and enjoy!

We found this recipe to make four decent sized portions,hello next day leftovers! We both really loved this soup and found it to beautiful and sweet but not overpowering.It shall definitely be making a reappearance in our kitchen this autumn and winter, it would perfect to come home to after a long day at work or after a chilly walk.

I would also recommend the Argos Value Range 1.5l slow cooker for those who are on a budget and don’t want to spend a fortune on a slow cooker as it’s perfect for just one or two families.
