Simple celery & sweet potato soup

April 13, 2015

Oh happy sweet potato day! This soup is quick and easy to make – it takes approximately 20 minutes. It is therefore perfect for dinner on a hectic day when you may be lacking creativity. If you make a large portion, you can pop some in the freezer. The soup is packed with nutrients and is delicious. Doesn’t get much better than that. SAMSUNG CSC

3-4 portions (20 minutes):

  • 300 gram sweet potato (two small)
  • 300 gram celeriac (sellerirot) (1/3)
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 8 dl water (or broth)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Koriander
  • Turmeric
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Garden cress (karse)
  • Evt. hvitløk

Chop sweet potato and celeriac into cubes, and slice the onion. Put the ingredients in a stock pot with 2 tbs water and all the spices. Let it work its magic for 5 minutes before you add 8 dl water and let it boil for 15 minutes. Take out some veggie bites to add as topping later, and mix the rest with a hand mixer until its smooth. Best served with some fried chickpeas, the veggie bites you saved and some herbs like garden cress.

CELERIAC is a small (large) veggie that is amazing for soups or oven baking. It is low in calories but packed with nutrients. It contains a lot of B-vitamin (folate) and vitamin C. Folate is important for new blood cell creation and for heart health. Vitamin C is known to strengthen the immune system, to aid in the uptake of iron, and protect against free radicals (1).

SWEET POTATO is full of betacarotene which helps you get a nice foundation for your next tan and hinders you from becoming burned. It transforms into vitamin A in the body, which is important for your sight. It also contains dietary fiber, which is important for the tummy (2).

Previously we have used the sweet potato in scones and cake, and we really recommend to try this potato in its huuge variation of uses!
