Jamaican Jerk Sweet Potato Soup

Sweet potato when blended in a soup maker comes out beautifully smooth. Sweet potato really is one of my favourite foods to make a soup with.

My other is chillies. I really struggle not to throw them into every meal I make, I know they’re not for everyone!

If you’re a chilli lover, but the rest of the house are not, one way round it is to add chilli flakes at the end, just sprinkle them on top.

Jamaican Jerk Sweet Potato Soup In A Morphy Richards Soup Maker

This soup maker recipe has very few ingredients and takes very little preparation. Just peel and dice around 3 to 4 sweet potatoes (approx. 600g), slice up 1 onion, peel and crush 2 cloves garlic and slice up 1 red chilli. If you don’t want to risk a soup that might be too hot for you, remove the seeds from the chilli.

I sautéed the onions and garlic in 1 tbsp. butter, but you can use your choice of oil, or leave out this stage completely if you don’t have a sauté function on your soup maker.

Then just add in all the remaining ingredients! Jerk seasoning is a handy spice mix to have, it is really useful for Air Fryer Jerk Chicken, as well as Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken.

Set the soup maker off on smooth and that’s about it.

Going forward I’m going to try and remember to add calorie counts to my recipes as some of you have commented that they are useful.

Another gorgeous soup from your blog, Used a very spicy Jerk seasoning and added 4 chillies (they were not needed as it was hot!)

Lovely flavour and would make it again, this time with maybe just 1 scotch bonnet added......

Thanks for you recipes we are loving them.

Next is the Moroccan chickpea soup (no chilli this time)
