Why We Love It

Sweet potatoes are much more nutritious then regular potatoes. Like carrots, they are good for your eyes as they contain Vitamin A.

The soup can be spiced up with chilli powder for extra flavour or can be made with apples for sweet tooths!

This recipe also contains cauliflower, which is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6 .
