It’s cold outside!

It’s starting to get quite cold outside with temperatures creaping down to minus 5 degrees Celsius. It feels a bit colder due to the wind. But it’s very dry out so there is no snow and there are warnings out to keep people from using fire outside.

I find soup to be some of the best food for this time of year. It keeps you warm and after all the food stuffed down in the holiday season makes me feel like eating food that’s not so heavy for a while. So today I decided to make a sweet potato spinach soup. And it turned out quite good.

I don’t use a recipe, but if you want to make something simillar the below is what I put in:

Sweet potato
Spinach
Garlic
Ginger
Chilli
A little cream
Water
Tumeric 
Salt

Served with garlic bread, it might become a houshold favourit.

  1. That looks very good! I’m allergic to potatoes, but I recently found out that I can eat sweet potatoes. It’s a brand new world out there! I will try this. Happy New Year!

    YUM! I love savory sweet potatoes. I feel like people who only ever eat them with brown sugar and cinnamon are REALLY missing out!

  3. That looks really awesome, and since it’s getting cold here too (finally!) soup is just the thing.

    It looks great. I enjoyed a nice hot bowl of tomato bisque. It is definitely soup weather out there.

    Yummy! 😀 Nothing like a soup to warm you up during the cold winter days.

  9. Unfortunately I eat all my soup out of a can. It is nice the lights are still up, but I fear, not for long.

  10. Hmmm looks yammi and delicious 😉 I am also a soup lover!

    Sounds good! I’ve never tried sweet potato in a soup. I love soup and making it is even more fun! Last week I made split pea and bean soup using a ham hock I had leftover from Christmas both were delicious.
