Kumara (Sweet Potato) and Leek Soup

My normal superpower is knitting.... But today I made the greatest soup of all time, creamy, delicious, amazing, and all gone. So this will be made again. Tomorrow.

3 Kumara (sweet potatoes)
1/3 leek
1 onion
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups vegetable stock
2 cups water
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon coriander

Peel the Kumara or sweet potatoes roughly. I like leaving some of the flesh. Cop into rings about half a cm wide. Waiting for soup isn't my strong suit. Dice the onion and chop the leek. Toss it all in a pot with the butter. Stir on a low heat until the onion is all soft and delicious looking.

Add in the spices. I go for a lot of pepper because its amazing. But, salt and pepper to taste.

Toss in the water and stock. Chicken stock would be great if you are a meat eater. But I am not, so I stick firmly to vegetable stock.

Boil. Keep the heat low and keep stirring. When the Kumara is soft, blitz with a hand blender.

Prepare to serve and be amazed. The leeks make it all creamy and amazing. I was all ready to add cream, and then stopped myself because the soup was perfection.
