Curried Vegetable Soup

Now that we’re heading towards autumn, this is an ideal opportunity for us to rekindle our love of soup. This is a vegan vegetable soup with a good dose of spice to give it a delicious curry flavour. Thick, warming and packed with vegetables, this soup is a must for the cooler months of the year.

Sweet potato forms the main bulk of the soup and is accompanied by red onions, peppers, courgettes and chickpeas. Canned tomatoes and vegetable stock make up the liquid, cooked with a variety of spices and a good helping of vegan yoghurt. The potatoes give it a natural sweetness, which works in harmonious juxtaposition to the spices. It serves about six people as a side dish, four if you’re having it as a main course. If there’s just two of you, then make the full batch anyway and freeze the rest in portion sizes.

    For the Soup:

    • 3 tbsp olive oil
    • A knob of vegan butter
    • 3 medium sweet potatoes peeled and diced small
    • 1 medium red onion sliced
    • 1 can of chickpeas drained
    • 1 red pepper diced
    • 2 courgettes diced small
    • 2 cloves garlic chopped
    • 1 can chopped tomatoes
    • 1 ½ litres vegetable stock make sure it’s vegan and gluten-free
    • 3 tbsp tomato puree
    • 3 tsp wholegrain mustard
    • 2 heaped tbsp hot madras curry powder
    • 1 tsp ground turmeric
    • 1 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp mild chilli powder
    • 4 heaped tbsp vegan yoghurt

    To Finish:

    • A handful of chopped coriander
    • 2 lemon wedges per bowl
    • Your favourite bread

    Instructions
     

    • Heat the oil and the vegan butter in a large saucepan and gently cook the diced sweet potatoes for 8 minutes or so, until they have started to soften. Now add the onion, chickpeas, pepper and courgettes and cook for another 7-8 minutes, stirring often.
    • Once the veg has softened, add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes to bring out the flavour. Now pour in the chopped tomatoes and the veg stock and bring to the boil.
    • Turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and then add the rest of the soup ingredients. Simmer for about 40 minutes, until you have a thick and delicious soup.
    • Once it is cooked, part blend the soup either by using an emersion blender or putting half of the soup into a jug blender before pouring it back in again. You want part of the soup to be smooth and thick but still have lots of nice vegetable chunks.
    • Serve with the coriander, lemon wedges and bread.

    Vegan Meringues

    Vegan meringues are a lot easier to make than you might think. They are made most often from chickpea water (also known as aquafaba), either from dried chickpeas you have cooked at home, or drained from a can. I predominantly use canned chickpea water for my aquafaba dishes, simply because it’s easier to get hold
