We all know how delicious a tomato soup can be, but sometimes it just lacks a little substance. On those days when you need a little extra food, we recommend trying our sweet potato and tomato soup recipe. Not only is it really filling but sweet potatoes are one of your five a day and incredibly nutritious - a big win! We also like it as a recipe to use up left over veg we have lying around the kitchen. Don't tell anyone our secret!


  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 onions
  • 8 medium size tomatoes
  • Vegetable stock


  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and carrots and cut into large cubes. Boil in vegetable stock until they go soft.
  2. While that's cooking, boil some water in another pan. Chop the red pepper and score the tops of the tomatoes. Place in the pan for about 5-10 mins until you can peel away the skin then leave to one side.
  3. Fry the onions until soft. Drain the potatoes and carrots and mix all the ingredients together. Blend until you reach a smooth consistency then add salt and black pepper to taste.

I used the 'one big pot' method too - fried the onion and pepper in a little oil then added the other ingredients in on top and simmered until done. I used tinned tomatoes too instead of fresh and it turned out perfectly nice. Very tasty and filling. Would be nice with some chilli pepper for a bit of heat if you like that!


I loved this soup..mine was thickish..but i assumed it was because i blended it with a stick looked and had the thickness of tin tomato soup!!! to be honest i put the whole lot in a big pan (but halved the amount) with about a ltr of stock water...made it even easier! oh and used tin toms!


Delicious, my grandaughter who doesn't eat vegetables well liked it and ate it. Mine was a bit thick as well but used the vegetable water from the sweet potatoes to thin it.


Tried this today- very quick and easy to make, with a lovely flavour. Mine was a bit too thick though :)
