Oooh, where did the hot weather go?  Where?   

Never fear.  A spicy, tangy, exotic soup will fill you with warmth, sunshine and sparkles, you mark my words.

Fast, fresh, simple and packed with vitamin A and beta-carotene, this soup will also have you seeing like a Moroccan bunny all night long.


For 4-6 large, piping hot bowls:

  • 2 tbsp EVOO / coconut oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 600g sweet potato, peeled, diced
  • 500g carrots, peeled, diced
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.  Saute onion and garlic, stirring often, for 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in coriander, cumin and chilli powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  3. Add sweet potato and carrot. Cook, stirring often, for a few minutes.
  4. Add stock. Cover. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  5. Add chickpeas and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
  6. Blend soup in batches until smooth. Return to pot over medium-low heat. Stir in lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Enjoy with crusty bread sprinkled with dukkah.

Sparkle on, glitterbugs! See you tomorrow!  xx

      The spices balance out with the cayenne kick and the lemon tang just perfectly. 🙂

    I love a good, creamy soup, especially when it’s filled with root vegetables and my main squeeze, the chickpea (sorry, I had to do it, in the spirit of MoFo). I just got pretty cold here today, so some of this soup sounds so nice right now!
