Our fiery sweet potato nduja soup will warm you inside out! It’s under 250 cals and three portions of your 5-a-day.
tOur sweet potato and nduja soup is hearty, balanced and satisfying. All the heat comes from the nduja - a spicy, spreadable pork salami from Italy. The nduja gives the soup depth and richness and is matched brilliantly with the sweet, silky sweet potato. It’s also great with pasta or served on bruschetta with mozzarella. At under 250 cals this soup is a lovely healthy dinner or lunch choice and it has three of your 5-a-day. Prep the soup ahead of time and reheat when you need it. Even on a busy day you can tuck into a nutritious dinner. Serve with crusty bread or a toasted wholemeal pitta bread to keep the cals low.
- Preheat the oven to 200C, gas 6. In a large bowl mix the olive oil with the garlic, onions, celery, sweet potato, peppers and carrots and season with salt and pepper.
