Spicy sweet potato soup

Le Creuset round casserole dish in ‘Chiffon pink’ available from House of Fraser (gifted)
I asked my mum to email me the recipe, she uses for her spicy sweet potato soup. As I wanted to try something quick, simple and easy in my beautiful ‘chiffon pink’ Le Creuset Casserole dish. If pastel kitchenware is your thing there’s tons of beautiful colours to choose from including teal, elysees yellow, almond and cotton. A Casserole dish is an essential kitchen classic, this can be used on every hob and in the oven, I can’t wait make some tasty treats in this. Who knew a casserole dish could be so pretty?
Here’s how I made the spicy, sweet potato soup and what you’ll need if you want to give it a go yourself…
2 tablespoons of butter
1 clove of garlic
2 red onions
600 grams of sweet potato
2 mild red chillies
1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper to season
1. Place the casserole dish on a medium heat, stir and melt the butter, then finely chop the garlic and red onion and place on a medium heat for around about five minutes.
 2. Wash, peel and chop the sweet potatoes, then cut them into 2cm cubes.
 3. Now add the sweet potato cubes to the casserole dish with the onion and garlic mix, let that fry for a few minutes, before adding the finely chopped red chillies to the saucepan.
4. Now add the stock to the casserole dish, and let it simmer for around 10-15 minutes until the sweet potato is soft and tender.
5. Once the sweet potatoes are nice and tender (if they pierce easily with a fork) then carefully take the casserole dish off the heat and blend the soup.
6. Place the casserole dish back on the hob and season to taste, now it’s ready to serve!
Pour the soup into a bowl, and serve with some fresh crusty bread, or on its own. If you find it’s a little too spicy for you add a tablespoon or two of sour cream before serving. The Le Creuset casserole dish, kept the soup nice and hot, throughout serving and eating… As well as looking pretty sat on the table.

What do you think? As I said, I wanted to try something simple and basic first. I’m excited to test it out and try some slow cooked stews, pasta dishes and even desserts. Are you a fan of the pretty pastel Le Creuset kitchen and bakeware?

    I had no idea Le Creuset made their their products in this gorgeous shade of pink! I have one of their casserole dishes in red, and it's literally the best investment I've made in terms of kitchenware. I use it all the time!

    Cooking ware tends to be bold bright colors so it's hard to find a soft pastel color so I'm so happy to see this. Such a pretty pink. I need this so I can cook something pretty like your soup.

    This sounds amazing! I don't normally like sweet potatoes (sorry!) but anything spicy and I'm there. That pot is also equally as amazing! Le Cruset is a brand I need to invest in for sure.

    Sorry if this sounds silly but can you describe in more detail which chillis you used. I tried putting 'mild red chillies' into google and it gives me a lot of different options. Thanks, I really want to make this.
