Sweet potato soup with cumin and ginger

Sweet potato soup with cumin an ginger is a great choice for any meal. Vibrant in colour and quick to make, this soup is ideal for any winter party. A root vegetable that resembles a potato, although it is quite different in taste and texture (and is not related to the potato). It has a pinkish-orange skin and a deep-orange, creamy-textured flesh that’s much lighter and fluffier than that of the potato. Sweet potatoes can be cooked in similar ways to the potato but cook much more quickly. Mixture of sweetness of the potatoes and subtle spicy taste of cumin and ginger makes this soup a great warming dish. Cumin seeds have a warm flavour and a strong, pungent aroma. Serve with croĆ»tons or crispy bread, and garnish with some double cream and chopped chives.
