Corn and Sweet Potato Soup

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 onion, finely diced 2 garlic cloves, crushed 7 ½ cups of vegetable stock 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 medium sweet potato diced 1 lb corn kernels (fresh or frozen) Sea salt Lime wedges to serve Instructions: Heat the oil in a large soup pan and gently fry the onion until soft (approximately 5 minutes). Add the garlic and gently fry for another 2 minutes. Add 1/14 cups of vegetable stock to the pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cumin and diced sweet potato and simmer a further 10 minutes. Season to taste and add the corn and remaining stock. Simmer approximately 10 minutes. Remove soup from heat and let cool slightly. Transfer half of the soup to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Fresh Tomato Soup Ingredients: 3 lbs of sun ripened tomatoes 1 2/3 cups of vegetable stock 3 tablespoons of tomato puree 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Fresh chopped basil leaves (about a handful) Sea salt to taste A little crème fraiche and croutons to serve (optional) Wash the tomatoes and place them in a large bowl. Pour boiling water over them and leave for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds drain the boiling water and add a little cold water to cool. This process makes it easy to peel the skin. Peel the skin off all tomatoes and cut each tomato into quarters. Place the tomatoes in a large pan and pour the vegetable stock over tomatoes. Bring to a boil and quickly reduce heat to low. Simmer gently for approximately 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato puree, vinegar and chopped basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer gently while stirring for a further 2 minutes. Let soup cool slightly and then transfer to a food processor or blender and process or blend until smooth. Transfer the soup back to the pan and reheat gently taking care not to boil. Serve in warm bowls and top with a little crème fraiche and croutons if desired.

Roasted Pepper Soup You can make this soup without roasting the peppers to save time but the roasting process gives the soup a rich, excellent flavor, worth the time. Ingredients: 3 red bell peppers, washed and deseeded 1 yellow bell pepper 1 medium onion, finely diced 1 garlic clove, crushed 3 cups of vegetable stock 1 tablespoon plain all-purpose organic flour Salt and black pepper to taste Diced red and yellow bell pepper pieces to garnish Plain yogurt or crème fraiche to garnish Preheat the grill. Wash and cut the peppers in half and remove stalks, core and seeds. Arrange the peppers in a non stick baking tray (skin side up) and place under the hot grill. Grill for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until skins begin to char. Transfer the peppers to a plastic or zip lock bag, seal and leave to cool. Once cool (about 15 minutes) peel skins and discard. Roughly chop the remaining pepper flesh and set aside. Place the onion, crushed garlic and 2/3 of the vegetable stock in a pan. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until stock begins to reduce. Sprinkle the flour into the pan and stir to reduce lumping. Add the chopped peppers and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Let soup cool slightly and the transfer to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer soup back to pan and reheat gently, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions: Cut the green tops off the spring onions and thinly slice the rest. Place the coarse green tops in a large pan along with the cilantro stalks, ginger, dried chilli and dashi or vegetable stock. Heat the mixture gently until it comes to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve and return clear broth to pan. Reheat until simmering. Add the green portions of the sliced spring onions, with the chopped pak choi and tofu. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes.
