When you've got the sniffles/snivvles - pronunciation variable depending on the depth of your illness - and your nose has turned into a tap, your head needs clearing, and your throat needs something soothing?
Enter the wonder soup! Wonder because it it is so simple to make, takes a few ingredients and manages to satisfy both big and little invalids.
Roast the following ingredients:
A large sweet potato
Season the following with olive oil (extra or not), basil leaves, thyme, tarragon, black pepper and a tiny bit of salt then transfer to the oven:
Half a courgette, Half a red onion, Half a yellow, red and green pepper 3 cherry tomatoes
(Note: roast the sweet potato first, then once half an hour has passed, add the seasoned vegetables)
Once the ingredients are nicely roasted put them in a blender with 200ml of chicken stock and a tbsp of milk (soya/rice/cows). Blend. Beautiful.
Serve with a dollop of double cream swirled in the middle and dust with chilli powder to clear your head and for extra prettiness.
