Ingredients

  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 2 leeks finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 large sweet potatoes peeled and chopped (approx. 1kg)
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 L chicken stock
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Spray the bottom of a large saucepan about 5 times with the cooking spray. Turn the heat on high and when the oil begins to bubble turn the heat down to a medium temperature.
  • Sauté the leeks and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes stirring constantly to ensure they do not burn.
  • Add the chopped potatoes and rosemary and stir around the pan for a minute or so.
  • Add the chicken stock and simmer for approximately 20 – 25 minutes until soft.
  • Puree the soup to a thick consistency either in a food processor or with a stick blender.
  • Return to the pan and season to taste.
