Tomato, Sweet Potato & Cinnamon Soup

There's something about the smell of cinnamon that really gets the taste buds going. Whenever I cook a meal for my husband and I that has cinnamon in, you can almost guarantee that at least one of the guests at our B&B will comment "that smells good"!

Tomato, Sweet Potato & Cinnamon Soup


Last weekend, I was lucky enough to find a whole box of lovely bright red, sweet & ripe tomatoes at a bargain price from the farm shop in Essex near mum & dad's (the same one where I got the sweetcorn for the Sweetcorn, Leek & Potato Soup ).  I use the whole tomato in this recipe by the way, seeds, skins and everything.

Ingredients
1 kg ripe tomatoes
1 large sweet potato (about 220 g peeled weight)
1/2 cinnamon stick
1/2 litre vegetable stock

Method
Wash the tomatoes.  Peel & dice the sweet potato. Put all the ingredients in a pan, bring to the boil & then simmer until the vegetables are soft.  If you have time, leave the cinnamon stick in the soup for as long as possible to infuse the flavours into the vegetables.

When you are ready, remove the cinnamon stick & blend the vegetables.  Yum!
