Home-made sweet potato & spinach soup

This sweet potato and spinach soup is lovely; which is a good thing as many people and kiddies and husbands and partners have an issue with a green coloured soup approaching it with a large degree of scepticism. Trust me it is worth a shot and if you like; adding a nice dollop of crème fraiche or creamy coconut milk mellows it down and adds a splurge of indulgence.
It is important to get in your greens; your Granny wasn’t just saying it for the heck of it. Green leafy vegetables contain lots of magnesium, vitamin K, plant based antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lutein, potassium, iron, calcium, vitamin C and small amounts of omega 3 fats to name but a few.
In a nutshell we should be eating leafy greens of some description every day.
I adopted this recipe from the ‘Cornucopia at Home; The Cookbook’; this is a wonderful book containing a collection of recipes from Dublin’s Cornucopia Restaurant.
