“This simple recipe uses the sweet potato with its distinctive flavour and colour as the base for a delicious soup with a hint of orange and coriander. Taken from "What's Cooking : Potatoes" The recipe calls for the soup to be pureed, and the addition of yoghurt. I don't do this as we prefer chunky soups, so in fact, I stop at the end of Step 4! I squeezed fresh oranges for the orange juice.”
