Potato and Chilli Soup

After making Carrot and Coriander Soup like a billion times in the past few months, I thought it was time to branch out in my soup making ventures. However, I really do not want to make soup with cream or the such like as I prefer to make soup lower in calories, so the hunt began. My boyfriend decided on Potato and Chilli Soup which sounded great to me too. This is the recipe that I used;

Ingredients

  • 1 Knob of Butter
  • 1 Chopped Onion
  • 1 tsp of Coriander
  • 2 Chopped Cloves of Garlic
  • 750g of Potato (Peeled and Cubed)
  • 500ml of Vegetable Stock
  • 1 Pinch of Chilli Flakes
  • Paprika – to Serve
Ready to Add the Vegetable Stock

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a large pan
  2. Add the onion, chilli, coriander and garlic
  3. Fry for 8 minutes until softened and beginning to brown
  4. Add the potato and fry for a further 2 minutes
  5. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil
  6. Once boiling turn down the heat and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until all of the ingredients are soft
  7. Blend until smooth
  8. Pour into a clean pan and reheat
  9. Add a sprinkle (to your taste) of paprika and serve

Serving Suggestions

Serve with freshly baked crusty bread

Yet again another really easy and low calorie soup recipe that can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days as the portion size is enough to feed 4 easily. It was a little thick and may be more of a Winter-warmer soup than for the Summer, but it did taste great and I will be making it again even in the sunshine. The recipe could easily be adapted to include more stock or minimise the amount of potato used if you  wanted a thinner soup.

However I still recommend that you try this soup and I would love to hear suggestions for other soups as I am always looking for inspiration.
