It has been the most glorious spring day, which the wee boy and I have spent with people we love. Moreover, I have had the chance to potter around shops I haven’t been to in a long time, which is always a delight. If you like that kind of thing. Although, isn’t it bizarre, the less you do, the more tired you seem to be? So although it has been a gentle day, we have arrived home quite exhausted. But very happy.
Despite the sunshine, there is still a chill in the air, which means that a good soup doesn’t ever seem out of place. And this one is a wonderful orange, especially if you whizz it up with a blender.
So, I melt some oil and butter, and add sliced leeks, carrots, salt and pepper, allowing them to gently simmer for a while whilst I prepare the sweet potato and squash. Once peeled and cubed add to the pan, stir around a little and add water and a vegetable stock cube. Bring it all to the boil and then allow to simmer until the cubed potato and squash are soft. Put a lid on, turn the heat off, and let it cool. Whizz it up with your trusty steed (hand blender).
Sunshine in a bowl.
