Sweet Potato and Orange Soup

(from “easy-gluten-free recipes”)

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
450g sweet potato, peeled and grated
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
850ml vegetable or chicken stock
2 springs fresh thyme
Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Note: you can just roughly chop vegetables and blend with a hand blender once cooked

Saute onions in a large pan, in the olive oil, for a minute or until tender but not browned. Add sweet potatoes, celery, stock, thyme and orange zest. Bring to boil and gently simmer for 10 minutes. Remove sprigs of thyme. Add the orange juice and parsley and season to taste.

Mmmm I thought it was delicious!
