2 leeks

Big sweet potato

2 tins tomato

Tin of coconut milk

Tumeric

Garlic (one or two bulbs to taste)

Vegetable stock (about 750 ml)

 

Chop the leeks and fry in some oil until soft.

Roast the garlic for 40 mins.

 

Add the tumeric to taste.

Add the tomatoes.

Chop the sweet potato and add it.

Add the stock.

 

Simmer until the potato is soft.

 

Add the roasted garlic and the coconut milk and blend.

 

You can add stuff like paprika and chilli flakes if you like a bit of heat. 

 

You can scale this one up nicely and it's extremely nice and nutritious.

Zuppa Toscana

 

For the Italian sausage:

Pork mince - 500g

Italian seasoning - 1tbsp

Salt - 1tbsp

Sugar - 1tsp

Fennel seed - 1/2tsp

Chilli flakes - 1/2tsp

Black pepper - 1tsp

Red wine vinegar - 1tbsp

 

Onion - 1, diced

Garlic - 3 cloves, crushed or finely chopped

Chilli flakes - 1/2tsp

Streaky bacon - 6-8 rashers

New potatoes - 250-300g, chopped into 1/2 or 1/4 depending on size (you want bitesize chunks)

Chopped kale - Couple of handfuls (I normally just use frozen pre-chopped stuff for convenience and remove any big stalk bits)

Chicken stock - 900ml (I've made it with homemade stock before but tbh a cube is fine for this)

Double cream - 250-300ml

Freshly grated parmesan - to taste

Salt & pepper - to taste

 

- Cook the bacon till crisp. Either grill the rashers whole and chop it up afterwards, or chop it up first then fry

- Mix the sausage ingredients together in a bowl. Brown in a little oil, chopping up into bitesize chunks as it cooks, then remove to a (different) bowl. Depending on the surface area of the pan, you may need to do this in a couple of batches

- Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary and fry the onion till soft. Add the garlic and chilli flakes and cook for a minute longer

- Add the potatoes and chicken stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 mins

- Add the sausage and kale and simmer for 5 mins longer

- Add the cream and parmesan (I normally use a good handful of finely grated stuff). Simmer for another 5 minutes. Season if needed

- Stir in half the bacon, then serve warm topped with more parmesan and bacon
