Roasted Garlic and Sweet Potato Winter Soup, with Red Onion (Vegan without the milk)

image

Serves 5

My lovely mum came up to see me for the weekend, and I decided to crack out my hand blender (aka, the best friend any veggie could ever hope for!) and make some winter soup to warm her through after the three and a half hour drive. Originally I was going to be boring and do a bog standard leek and tattie soup, but it was so dull even contemplating the idea that I eventually gave up on it. Then, after some perusing of the interwebs and a cook book that I have with me, I found this gem! Now, if you read my blog, you’ll no doubt have realised that I have an ongoing love affair with roasted sweet potato and garlic. This soup was my idea of heaven on earth! You can make this so very easily, pop it in the fridge or freezer bags, and mange for many days afterwards. I was not so lucky, as my flatmate had made bread to go with this and because I’d also invited le boyf over (I think my mum likes him more than she likes me!) all the soup was gone! This can only be a good sign though!
