Winter Warmers

Melbourne is really a wonderful place to live in – there is great coffee, delicious food places and the city is just so ridiculously beautiful

But this winter though…

So I have been making heaps of soups at home to keep myself warm (literally standing in front of the stove to keep myself from freezing). So I decided to write up the recipe for one of the better soups I have served up over the past couple of weeks.


* I made a huge batch to freeze

  • 1 1/2 cup of diced peeled sweet potato
  • 1 1/2 cup of cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 thinly sliced brown onion
  • 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 can of diced tomato
  • 3 tsp of tomato paste
  • 1 thinly sliced habanero chilli (mostly because Andres has been complaining about how I don’t put enough chilli in my food)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp Garam Masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Greek yogurt / Cream to serve


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot; add the sweet potato, cauliflower, onion and chickpeas and saute for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chillis and Garam Masala and salt and fry for a few more minutes and then add the diced tomato and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the tomato paste and vegetable stock, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender (stir occasionally).
  4. When serving the soup and stir in the cream or yogurt.

Hopefully it comes out as amazing as it did for me and makes you feel warm and happy 😀
