IngredientsIngredients

  • 4 onions
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 4 carrots
  • 10 potatoes
  • 6 whole cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

You can also use parsnips, root celery, swedes and other roots. Personally I think the sweet potato and the garlic is key to a nice soup in step 2.
Cooking instructionsHow to

Meal one: Roasted vegetables

  1. Heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius / gas mark 6 / 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel and chop everything. The cloves garlic are best left whole.
  3. Pour everything into a baking tray and spray over a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes. Turn the vegetables a few times.
  5. Ready to serve. Works well as a side dish to for example veggie burgers, the recipe alone is a little low in protein, so it’s good to add some. Don’t forget to take a moment to appreciate the food when you eat, and to appreciate that you have made something from scratch.

The recipe works out at 6 large portions, but it’s so nice people usually eat a lot more. Don’t count on any leftovers! But, should there be something left, make a nice soup of this.

Meal two: The soup

  1. Roasted vegetable soupPour everything into a pot. Add a few deciliters / a cup of water and a vegetable stock cube. Bring to a boil.
  2. Mix the soup with a hand held mixer to make it smooth. It is now ready to serve, preferably with a dollop of crème fraîche, soy yogurt (for vegans) or Turkish yoghurt.
