Alkaline Diet Recipe #96: Sweet Potato Soup

Article by ross

This sweet potato soup recipe has been created by the famous British chef Antony Worrall Thompson. Callum, one of the Energise directors, forwarded this recipe to me and it is truly delicious and healthy too.

As we are experiencing arctic temperatures in the UK at the moment, a soup is the perfect type of food to warm you up and provide you with all the nutrients your body needs. The main ingredient here are sweet potatoes, which are not strictly alkaline and should be eaten in moderation. They are however a root vegetable which are currently in season and are perfect for using in soups. Just make sure that they are fresh and do not have any fungal spots when you buy them.

Sweet potatoes have got a high nutritional value and are rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. The other ingredients are onions, garlic, ginger, coconut cream, spinach and coriander, which are all alkalising.

We hope you enjoy this delicious soup created by Antony Worral Thompson as much as we have!
