Before you start

Kettle boiled | Garlic crush or microplane | Large pot | Baking tray lined with parchment paper | High speed or stick blender

Soak the cashews for the cashew cream

  • Soak 50g of cashews in boiling water whilst you begin the soup

Prepare the ingredients

  • Peel and roughly chop the onion
  • Peel and grate the garlic and ginger
  • De-seed and dice the chillis

For the soup and carrot topping

  • Heat 2 tbsp coconut oil in a pot over medium to low heat. Once hot, add the onion and a big pinch of salt, and allow it to cook for 8-10 minutes 
  • Whilst the onion cooks, roughly chop the carrots and sweet potato 
  • When the onion is soft, add the garlic, ginger, chilli and turmeric and saute for 1 minute to release the delicious aromas
  • Add the chopped carrot and sweet potato to the soup, followed by the cashews, stock cubes and 1 litre boiling water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes. The vegetables should be tender at this point
  • Preheat the oven to 180*C fan setting 
  • Chop the heritage carrots into chunks
  • Transfer them to a baking tray and toss with the salt and olive oil. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until soft and tender

For the cashew cream

  • Drain the cashews from the boiling water and rinse them under cold running water
  • In your high speed blender, whizz the soaked cashews with plant based milk until you have a smooth and velvety consistency

Blend your soup and serve

  • Blitz the soup, either in a high speed or hand blender until smooth
  • Taste and season with more salt if you’d like
  • Ladle the soup between bowls and serve with a drizzle of the cashew cream, top with roasted carrots and dip with thick slices of sourdough
