Sweet potato and courgette soup with ginger and basil
All you need for this recipe is a large pan and a blender.
The combination of the sweet potatoes, courgette, ginger and basil works so well. There is a mix of a slight sweetness combined with savoury flavours that is absolutely yummy. And sweet potatoes and courgettes don't take long to cook this this soup can be done in a flash!

INGREDIENTS (3-4 portions):
Sweet potato soup ingredients:
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1l water (more if needed)
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 chopped courgette
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 heaped tsp finely chopped ginger
- 1 heaped tsp minced garlic
- 1 1/2 stock cubes
- Soy sauce to taste
- Basil leaves
- 1 firm tofu block
Finely chop 1 onion and sauté in a bit of oil.
Then add 1l of boiling water to it together with 2 peeled sweet potatoes, 1 chopped courgette, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 heaped tsp of finely chopped ginger, 1 heaped tsp of minced garlic and 1 1/2 stock cubes.
Let cook for 15 minutes.
Then transfer the soup into a heat resistant blender and blend. Add some soy sauce to taste as well. I like sweet potatoes but I always find they need lots more seasoning to make them taste even better. Blend again to mix with the soy sauce.
Serve in a soup bowl and add chopped basil leaves in. Cut 1 firm tofu block into small cubes (no need to cook it, the heat of the soup will warm it up) and add to the soup as well.
