PREPARATION TIME 15 MINUTES
COOKING TIME 20 MINUTES
1 teaspoon groundnut oil
2 medium leeks (700g), chopped coarsely
3 cloves garlic, quartered
2 medium sweet potatoes (800g), chopped coarsely
1 litre chicken or vegetable stock
160ml light evaporated milk - non l'avevo e ci ho messo il latte normale
4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander - non l'avevo e ci ho messo il prezzemolo
Heat oil in large saucepan; cook leek and garlic, stirring, until leek softens. Add sweet potatoes and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, covered, 15 minutes or until sweet potato softens.
Blend or process the soup, in batches, until smooth. Return soup to same cleaned pan; simmer, uncovered, until soup thickens slightly. Add evaporated milk and coriander; stir, without boiling, until heated through.
The smoothest consistency for this soup will be achieved using a blender, hand-held stick blender or a mouli.
