All of a sudden it’s cooled down here in Perth and with that wintery feeling, comes the urge to eat soup. Well, for me anyway. This Sweet Potato Soup made in my Thermomix really hit the spot for me today.

I have included lots of immune-boosting ingredients in this one, it will be the one I whip up when one of us starts to feel a bit under the weather over winter!
