Cosy up with our heart warming Soup. I was a Nanny for many years, before starting Absolute Childcare and Annabel Karmel was my 'go to' recipe book when cooking for my charges - simple and nutritious recipes that are quick and easy to follow and packed with loads of nutrients from the different veggies and a punch of taste from the caramelisation roasting brings. We love this winter warmer in our household, we make a big batch and keep in the fridge or perfect for freezing - if there is any left! Serve with buttered wholegrain toast or warm rolls.
Ingredients 2 tbsp olive oil 2 carrots, peeled and sliced 150g medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 1 red onion, sliced 1 yellow pepper, diced 800ml chicken or vegetable stock
(Double it up to make enough to batch)
Preheat the oven to 200 Fan. Put the vegetables onto a large baking sheet. Add the oil and mix together. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes until soft and lightly golden brown.
Put the vegetables in a large bowl or jug. Blend until smooth using a stick blender. Add the stock and mix until you have a smooth soup consistency. Reheat in a saucepan or microwave until hot.
Please let us know how you get on and share your feedback here. We would love to hear from any nannies about your favourite recipes in comments.
