Yet another soup recipe that my daughter liked! After the success of red-velvet beetroot soup , I have tried butternut squash soup with sweet potatoes. To make the bowl of soup more appealing for my daughter, I have prepared some sweet potato chips. They are really easy to make and are really delicious! I have also added some fresh curd cheese to the soup - my daughter had a lot of fun fishing it with her spoon:)
She is not such a great fan of vegetable soups (unless there is a chicken inside), but she really loved this one. If you want to make a yummy soup for your kids, try this one out. It is really a very simple recipe to make.
For the soup:
1/2 of small butternut squash
1/3 of small sweet potato
1/2 of carrot
1/3 of persil root
1 slice of celery root
1 tablespoon of sour cream
1 tablespoon of flour
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 vegetable cube
fresh curd cheese (a few)
For the sweet potato chips:
2 sweet potatoes
Did you know that though considered a vegetable in cooking, botanically speaking, squash is a fruit?
Step1 Peel butternut squash and other vegetables. Cut them into cubes. Put everything in a soup pot, add spices, oil and the vegetable cube. Cook the soup until all the vegetables are tender. Pour a bit of a soup liquid into a bowl or a cup. Add sour cream and flour and mix everything together to make a creamy mixture. Pour this mixture back into the squash soup and stir well; cook for 1-2 minutes. Mix everything with a blender.
Step2 While the soup cooks, prepare sweet potato chips. Homemade chips are so yummy:) I used my mandoline slicer with a waffle blade to cut these shapes of sweet potato; the advantage is that they fry very quickly and are funny to eat! If you don't have mandoline slicer nor other kitchen gear to make these shapes, you can just cut thin sweet potato slices using your knife.
Step3 Warm the oil in a large pan and let the sweet potatoes fry to make delicious chips! You need to stir them gently and turn, so they fry on both sides. When they are golden brown, transfer them to a paper towel lined baking sheet. These is to let them cool down a bit and remove the exceeding amount of oil.
Step4 Pour the squash soup in a bowl. Place the sweet potato chips in the middle shaping a flower. Use a piece of fresh curd cheese to make the center of the flower. Put some more cheese all around the plate. Enjoy!
