Summer Soup Interlude

Dear readers,

apologies for the lull in posting - there are some changes happening, and there's no way of telling whether they are going to go a David Bowie or Judas Priest direction at this stage.

But while I've been running around like a headless chick, I found comfort in the ladle of a brilliant, family run, local soupery, somewhat cheekily named Naked Soup. The jury is still out on the amusement factor of this name. But be that as it may, I find that, when summer consists of a maximum temperature that would count as winter in other parts of the world, soup is reliable, spoonable tummy joy.

So, today, when I paid a visit to the abovementioned establishment, I mentioned to the young, handsome lad behind the till just how yumsome the soup of my choice was. And hey, presto, here's the recipe. (Of course, if you are in town, please check out the cafe! Their coffee is on par with the soup, served with a corner of caramel slice.)

Lentil-Sweet Potato-Coconut Soup
(serves about a third of customers at lunchtime - adjust to smaller portions as necessary)

Add water to 3 sweet potatoes, 2 large onions (both in chunks), 100g stock cubes and 1.6kg red lentils. Boil untill the lentils are soft.. Add 1 tin of coconut milk, season, blend, and enjoy the goodness!
