Need comfort food?? Cook this!
Forget your chicken soup for the soul, this chorizo and sweet potato soup is where it's at. Aside from being DEVINE, it has the added bonus of being incredibly easy and quick to make.
This soup has just 5 ingredients. I did mention it's simple to make right!
900gr sweet potato, 275gr chorizo, 1 medium onion, 2 cloves of garlic, chicken or vegetable stock.
I have a slight cold and sore throat (thanks Enid for giving me that lol!) so I threw in extra garlic and extra onion.
First things first - prick your sweet potatoes and throw them in the microwave. You don't have to do this (you can boil them from scratch) but it will save you time in the long run, plus so much easier to cut sweet potato when it's soft.
Fry the onion, add the garlic, and then finally the chorizo - until the onion absorbs some colour from the chorizo.
Once the fried ingredients are ready and the sweet potato is soft, cut the sweet potato into cubes (yes leave the skin on!).
Place in a pot with 1.5l of stock - ingredients need to be covered.
Boil up and simmer for 5/10 minutes. It doesn't need much more cooking because the sweet potato cooked in the microwave already.
Blitz! I like a fairly smooth soup but feel free to do it as chunky or smooth as you like.
Season with salt and pepper to your taste and serve!
I think some parmesan sprinkled on top would make this soup even better.
