Curried Sweet Potato (Kumara) & Coriander Soup

"This is so quick and easy because I can get pre-mashed kumara in tubs in the veggie section of my local Woolworths Supermarket. If it is not available to you prep time will obviously be much longer."

    I added the chopped fresh sweet potato on the second step and allowed it to cook longer with the stock then pureed it with a hand wound. I then added an extra cup of stock because it was very thick. I felt the serving size was not very generous for four people, it was more for two. However we really enjoy eating this soup the flavours are outstanding. Thank you Calms79

    Great soup. We boiled our own kumara. A very quick and simple soup but the flavours are fantastic. I think next time I'll make it without the curry and the kids will enjoy it too. The kumara and coriander were a great combination. Photo to come


I live in Adelaide, South Australia and work in accounting and payroll. I'm actually about to start a brand new job with an airline which I am super excited about. I live with my bf and brother and enjoy doing all the cooking in our home. I luckly get out of doing the clearing up! (most of the time) I collect old cookbooks. I have many from the 60's and 70's and love to compare the differences in entertaining to what is common place now. Some of the tried and true recipes in these cookbooks are priceless I am completely addicted to meal planning and although I do not always know what I will be making on a particular day I love to be prepared enough to know there is a week or more of options in the house. I'm currently on the look out for the perfect meatloaf. My mum made a great one which I haven't perfectly duplicated yet. Working on it though. It was free form not in a pan and basted with a bbq sauce that I swear she once said had coffee in it??? If anyone has any ideas send me a msg. *** I think I have this worked out and have posted so that I can keep it safe. Sorry all I realise there are thousands of meatloaf recipes out there already. May 2007- Wooohooooo! I am now a premium memember.... And am enjoying all its benifits endlessly. Although my addiction to Zaar is now out of control.
