Sweet Potato Mango Soup Recipe

For: 4 servings
Preparation time: 40 minutes.


  1. Peel and dice onion, garlic, ginger and sweet potato. Peel the mango. Cut the fruit off the pit and also dice.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a pan. Add the cumin, turmeric, curry powder and sugar with the onion, garlic and ginger and caramelize 1 minute. Add sweet potato and mango, heat and pepper. Steam at medium heat 8 minutes.
  3. Douse with coconut milk and vegetable bouillon and simmer about 15 minutes until the sweet potato is soft.
  4. Grate half of the lemon peel and add to the soup. Press the lemon and add the juice as well.
  5. Puree the soup until smooth and season.
  6. Divide the sweet potato mango soup into the bowl, add a dollop of yogurt and serve.

Tip:Adding mango cubes, thin ginger strips and a little fresh herbs makes a nice addition to the pureed soup. If the soup is too thick, just add a little coconut milk or vegetable bouillon.
