Dish of the month December - Nigel Slaters' Sweet potato soup

This sweet potato soup recipe from Kitchen Diaries II (December) is so easy and straightforward to make...take peeled and chopped sweet potatoes season and roast in the oven in some groundnut oil, once roasted, blitz/blend and add coconut milk and re heat...check seasoning and hey presto! This soup is so thick and sweet you don't need anything with it...just a spoon! Just the job for winter and would be a great hit with children due to its sweet flavour.

Sadly this is my last post for 'dish of the month' for the last year myself and Janice at Farmersgirl Kitchen have worked our way through Kitchen Diaries II by Nigel Slater. We have had our highs and our lows and our comfy little tweets with Nigel himself along the way.  But mostly we really have enjoyed not just what we have made, but reading the book from cover to cover and seeing what other food bloggers make of Nigel Slaters recipes. It's been great fun and we have really enjoyed each and every entry. Thanks to everyone who has joined us so far.

December is the last month and by the 28th if you haven't entered you've missed the boat. At the end of the month we will do a round up not just of December but a look back at the whole years entires...and we will be choosing our favourites, if you can't wait that long our Pinterest board has everything in one place...here.

  1. That looks so thick and good! I think we may have to bring Nigel's Dish of the Month out for an airing every now and then, just to remind us to cook his lovely recipes!

  2. Oh I love this soup. So velvety and thick. Such a great colour too. I've enjoyed randomly taking part in this challenge!!
