Sweet Potato Caramelised Onion Soup recipe.

Bring your tempestuous side to the fore. And, indulge.

Earthy succulent sweet potato with sweet caramelised onions infused with liquorice-like tarragon; Sweet Potato Caramelised Onion Soup.

This dish will topple your belief that vegan food can’t be super nourishing.

Make this:

  • When you fancy a hearty soup as you surround your shoulders with a warm blanket
  • When you’ve just had a brisk walk in the blistering cold and need a bite to heat you up in no time
  • When you’re rushed for time and need a light broth to set you on your way as you gear up for a big night out

Sweet Potato Caramelised Onion Soup was inspired when one stark cold evening, I needed a nourishing meal that’d keep me warm as I save my pennies on the heating bill.

Sweet potatoes have a low glycaemic index, good for those suffering from diabetes and others that monitor their blood sugar level.

Sweet Potato Caramelised Onion Soup is vegan and paleo.
