I have a feeling that this week's results won't be so good though - I've been on holiday - well, two nights away - in Bognor. I have so much I want to say about this but it's late, the eyelids are drooping and I still have a million things I need to do before tomorrow morning. I'll return to a proper post about this later in the week when time is more on my side. Suffice it to say, in short, that the weekend was a whirlwind of things and the weather was absolutely outstanding. Having pointed my splurge, I'm currently 22 propoints in deficit. Oops!
This week's soup, thankfully, was a quick one. Good thing too - I'm pulled between my complete exhaustion and my slight guilt over the mammoth cookie waffle sundae I had this afternoon.
Makes two servings: 3pp per bowl. Bear in mind that servings/points will depend on the size of your potato/sweet potato.
Basically, sweat a red onion in a tablespoon of olive oil. Add some spices - ginger, coriander, cayenne, curry powder and cumin. Add a diced sweet potato and an old potato and some vegetable stock - around 400ml. Bubble away for about twenty minutes on a medium heat - keep an eye - mine actually needed a little more stock and a little less time. Blend. Swirl through 10g of natural yoghurt per bowl if you are a little more organised than me and have it. Add some lime juice to taste.
