Great recipe. This is a firm favourite in our household.

The reason this recipe calls for roasting the veg is for a reason.....it just tastes so much better! Roasting in oil adds so much to the flavour. I would recommend trying it rather than just simmering the veg on the hob as it is 'easier'. It really isn't..after all, you just chuck everything in a big roasting pan, bung it in the oven instead of on the hob.

I have made this soup lots of time with and without Cumin, I do it on the hob, turning the veg in a little flora before adding the stock, great results everything :)

Good for using up veg. I will also do it next time on the hob unless already using oven dicing potato smaller to cook quicker.
Nice thick soup, not being veggie I used half veg stock and half chicken stock.

Well received.

Made this soup to take to work. Really was a hit and was asked to make and bring in again

This sounds lovely but can it be frozen?

Yes very tasty soup, although I hadn't got any cumin in so I used curry powder. Will try it again though with the cumin, I imagine it just a milder taste. I cooked it on the hob too, much less hastle!

This is one of the best sweet potato recipes ever. The cumin gives it a nice curry-ish taste, I liked it but I think it would taste nice without cumin, too. Very easy to make!

An absolutely delicious recipe and so easy to prepare. I already have a sweet potato and red pepper recipe, but the addition of cumin gives it a real kick!
