Our take on this classic soup is healthy, easy and delicious. The perfect Autumn dinner!

Ingredients (makes 2 Big bowls or 4 small)

  • 2 cups Veggie Stock
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 cups Chopped Carrot
  • 1 cup Chopped Sweet Potato
  • 1 Brown onion - finely chopped
  • 1 Orange (juice of)
  • Thumb Fresh Ginger - grated
  • 1 Cup Coriander - finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2-4 Slices Pitta Bread


  1. In a big saucepan sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until translucent then add ginger and fry for another minute.
  2. Pour in stock and water and bring to a boil, add carrots and sweet potatoes and simmer until soft.
  3. Add orange juice and approx half the coriander and let simmer for another few mins before taking off the heat and allowing to cool.
  4. While the soup is cooling you can make the pitta bread. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over each piece and use your fingers to spread it evenly (the kids will love helping with this bit!) Top with salt, pepper and a little of the reserved coriander and cook on 125ºc for 5-10 mins or until slightly golden and crispy.
  5. Once the soup has stopped steaming, blitz in the blender until smooth then transfer back to the pot to heat up before serving.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste then serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt (or cream) and garnish with the remaining coriander.


Of course crusty bread would also be lovely with this soup!
