Makes 1 large pot I Prep 20 minutes I Bake 20 minutes
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
- 4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
- half red capsicum, deseeded and cut into chunks
- olive oil
- 2 - 3 tsp mixed dried herbs
- 1 sprig rosemary
- half a brown onion, diced and sauted
- 375 ml (1 ¾ cups) vegetable stock
- half a vegetable stock cube or 1 tsp stock concentrate, optional
- cream for spiderweb garnish
Preheat oven at 180 C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Spread out potato, carrot, and capsicum on the baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt, mixed herbs, and rosemary leaves, and toss to coat evenly.
Place tray in oven and bake for around 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Once vegetables are cooked, transfer to a saucepan along with the sauted onionand add the vegetable stock liquid. If more flavour is needed, add half a stock cube or stock concentrate. Bring to the boil, cover, and allow to simmer gently for around 10 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before blending in a high-speed food processor to achieve a smooth, creamy consistency. Pour into bowl.
Place 60 ml (¼ cup) of cream in a sandwich bag. Cut a small opening in one of the corners of the bag.
Gently pour in the cream, making three circles in your soup. Using a toothpick, start from the centre and make a line going outwards. Repeat to form the spiderweb.
