Sweet potatoes are a wonderful starch to add to your repertoire. They can be mashed, boiled, steamed, and incorporated into a number of different dishes, plus they’re a great source of fibre. Additionally, they contain several vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, vitamin B and vitamin C.
This recipe highlights the sweet potato and also contains a secret ingredient: chickpeas! The chickpeas in this spiced sweet potato soup add an extra boost of protein and fibre, and make for a cozy winter meal.
Heat oil over medium-high heat, sauté onion and garlic.
Add spices, sweet potato, and carrot.
Add stock and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add chickpeas and simmer for 10 minutes, covered.
Use an immersion blender (or transfer to a heat-safe blender) to puree the soup, then stir in lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
