Putting It Together
Peel and chop the sweet potato into medium sized peices, drop into a pot, cover with water and place on the stove.
Add vegetable stock and bring to boil until the potato is soft.
When potato is cooked, separate from the water and stock – keep broth to the side for later.
In a separate pan melt butter or substitue, add in the garlic – prepare for mouthwatering smells to fill the kitchen.
Cut the leek into fine to medium sized rings, add to the pan and leave to sautÃ©.
Add a cup or two of the sweet potato broth to the leek, leave to simmer and soften.
Combine sweet potato, leek and half a cup of broth in a blender to loosely combine.
Add in coconut milk, cumin, turmeric and pepper and blend until smooth.
Depending on desired thickness you may wish to add a little more broth to the mix.
Put your delicious creation in a bowl and sprinkle with pepper to taste or place in an airtight container, leave to cool then place in freezer for later.
