During a cold snap we see the soup pot back on the stove. The latest favourite in our house is this curried kumara soup which is extra delicious with a dollop of yoghurt on the top.

Serve 4-6

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped roughly
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp grated ginger
2 Tbsp mild curry powder
500g golden kumara, peeled and cut into chunks
1 litre chicken stock
250ml coconut milk
½ cup Greek yoghurt
1 Tbsp chopped chives

1. Into a large pot place the oil and warm through. Add the onion, garlic and ginger cooking for 3 or 4 minutes to soften slightly. Stir through the curry powder until fragrant.

2. Add the kumara and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer for 25 minutes or until the kumara is completely soft. Stir through the coconut milk for the last few minutes.

3. Blend until smooth. Reheat before serving with a dollop of yoghurt and fresh chives.
