Sweet Potato and Pepper Soup

Serves 4 but as I said before I have a problem with soup quantities.
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • About 750ml vegetable stock
  • 175g frozen corn(or indeed tinned)
  • Good handful of frozen mixed peppers(or whatever colours you have)
  • Chilli oil(or other source of chilli flavour)
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 4 tbsp creme fraiche
Sweat the onion and potato for about 5 mins. Add flour and cook for a min or so. Add stock, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 20-25mins until tender. Blend until smooth. Return to the pan and add the sweetcorn, peppers, spring onions and chilli oil (according to taste). Simmer for 5-10mins until everything is cooked to your liking. Season and serve.

I like very mild foods so I tend to serve this with the chilli oil on the table for people to add more if they want a bigger kick.
