Hi every body, Good Morning, Good evening or may be Good night!, Winter slowly creeping in my kids have started to pester me to make soups, So I started with this one, as I was looking into some kind of soup to go with the Bread I Baked from DK's blog Chef in you, for the T and T event, funny so I am linking this soup to her event of AWED's which go on in her blog, When I was browsing through my Recipe books I found this Soup which said Brazilian, isn't this the event going on in Sara's Corner was what I recalled in my memory lane ?,
Immediately I set out cook this soup which was quite yummy and everybody in House loved it, There only complaint was I should have made some savoury bread to go with it.
From today clock has changed, an extra hour of sleep for people who enjoy sleeping (like my kids for example). Yesterday we sat in front of the TV, Computer and Phones to look how 1:59... 2:00 turned back to 1:00 again !!, So then we set out watches and wall clocks one hour behind.
BRAZILIAN SWEET POTATO SOUP
Recipe source : Simply Soups
500 gms of Sweet Potato
3 Ripe Tomatoes
4 cups of Vegetable Stock (The recipe uses Beef stock)
4 tbsp of Unsalted butter
1/4 cup of fresh Cilantro/Coriander leaves
Salt and Freshly ground Pepper
Peel and skin the onions, chop them.
Chop the Tomatoes (the original recipes says to peel & seed the tomatoes)
Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into slices.
I tweaked the recipe a little bit :) I added 2 tbsp of butter to a wok, sauteed the onions, Tomatoes and then the Sweet Potatoes until they got cooked then pureed them in a blender and added the stock to it, Keep a 1/4 cup aside. (In the original recipe the sweet potatoes was put them in a heavy pan with the stock, bring it to boil, then the same way as the above procedure).
Bring them to boil then add 2 to 3 tbsp of Cornflour in the 1/4 cup of stock kept aside mix well and add this to the boiling soup, Keep Stirring as the soup starts to gets thickened, then Season it with a tbsp of salt and a tsp of pepper and reheat it gently.
Serve hot garnished with Chopped fresh Coriander leaves OR you can serve this soup just as it is as it delicious on its own.
I like to send this to AWED - Brazil, of Sara of Sara's Corner who is the host of AWED events started by DK of Chef in you.
