Sweet potato, onion and celery soup

Last Monday I went round my friends flat and she offered to cook me lunch after I was finished at the gym, which was very kind. She wanted something light, as did I really because I was going out for dinner in the evening. Luna offered to make me a soup. I offered to get the ingredients for her to cook with including some whole meal 60g rolls (remember I'm on Slimming World guys!). So I picked up sweet potatoes and onions and she made me some soup! I absolutely fell in with it, it was tasty so I decided so make my own version!


  • Frylight
  • 2 big sweet potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Celery sticks
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • 1 pint of water
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
 I chopped up the onion (with many tears!), peeled the sweet potatoes and the celery, fried the onions and celery off in frylight in a large sauce pan, added the chopped sweet potato. Boil the kettle, measure out a pint of hot water and add 2 vegetable stock cubes. Once they have dissolved, add to the sauce pan and turn the heating down to a medium heat and wait until the sweet potato is soft. Then I blitzed it with an electric hand blender until it was a thick creamy soup!

Before and after

This will do at least 3 portions so I will take some to work, some for my mother for her lunch tomorrow if she would like it and its entirely syn free on Extra Easy and Green plans.
