Millet and Sweet Potato Soup
Thick, chunky and filling - perfect with a crusty roll.
This recipe was made by Beccy, a Healthy Supplies staff member.
Millet and Sweet Potato Soup is a scrumptious and comforting winter warmer made from any selection of root vegetables - great if you have the odd carrot or parsnip left over in the fridge.
This particular recipe has been made using millet, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnip, turnip, herbs and spices. It has a natural sweet flavour, thanks to the carrots and parsnips. Follow the guide below if you'd like to have a go too!
1) Heat oil in a large sauce pan. Add onion and celery and soften for a moment.
2) Add the grated carrot, chopped carrot, garlic and remaining chopped root vegetables and heat for 2 minutes.
3) Pour the stock into the pan, add the herbs, paprika and tomato puree, and bring to the boil. Once the stock is boiling, reduce the heat and cover pan with the lid. Leave cooking for 15 minutes.
4) Whilst the soup cooks, heat a frying pan (or skillet) and add a tiny drop of oil. Heat the millet for 5 minutes or until the millet goes slightly golden. Once the millet is done, add to the soup and cover for a further 20 minutes.
5) If you prefer a clearer soup, you can add more water if desired. Otherwise, once the soup has cooked, hook out the bay leaves, season with pepper and salt, then you are ready to serve.
This soup serves 4-6 people. It is a very substantial meal, suitable for vegetarians and is suitable for freezing. Remember, you can try this with any vegetable you choose - it's so easy!
