Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Soup in Froothie Evolve
As mentioned before, Froothie Evolve has actually changed the way I am cooking now and I have become a big fan of soups and smoothies. Over the last couple of weeks week I made a quick hummus recipe, and a quick no oil Carrot soup and tomato soup. This week I have been using the Froothie Evolve to make quick and easy no oil cauliflower and sweet potatoes soup. This is the first time I made this soup and it was so delicious that my husband has requested it to be made on Christmas day as a starter. The soup can be made on the stove top too but I like making it in the Froothie Evolve as it cooks well and I don't have to keep stirring it. It gives a chance to do other chores

1smallchopped sweet potato
½ tsp turmeric
salt to taste
1tspbouillon powder (they do have vegetarian and vegan ones)
1cancoconut milk (400 mls)
2-3cloves of garlic
sliced onions for garnishing
Add about 100 mls of water in the froothie jug (Please note: With Froothie Evolve you get 2 jugs – both made of tempered glass. One jug has a heating element which allows you to cook & blend or steam & blend and is perfect for soups so I used that one.) Place the cauliflower, potatoes and dates in the steaming basket in the blender and then either manually or using your bluetooth choose the steam option. This should take 30 minutes. Once steamed, remove the steaming basket carefully and keep aside. Remove the water used for steaming. Remove the stones from the dates.
In the same jug, add the steamed vegetables, dates,ginger, garlic, boullion powder, salt, turmeric and the coconut milk. Also add half a cup of water.
Switch on the Froothie manually or using your bluetooth, pick the right soup option. You have the choice of smooth or chunky soup. I chose smooth soup. The soup is set to cook 30 minutes. About halfway the soup stirs and blends itself to perfection. All the stirring and blending makes the soup really creamy.
To give your soup some heat, slice the chili and add it to the soup. Serve it hot garnished with sliced onions.
