Sweet Potato, Carrot and Ginger Soup

Sweet Potato, Carrot and Ginger Soup Recipe - Tomorrow is a New Day

If you are like me you often buy food with the intention of cooking meals throughout the week but sometimes you end up with an abundance of certain vegetables that somehow missed the food party.  

When I opened my fridge last night I found a big pile of carrots with some ginger that I had bought last week.  I did a quick search and found a lovely recipe on the Riverford Organic website for a sweet potato, carrot and ginger soup.  Within 30 mins it was prepped, cooked and on the table with leftovers for tomorrow.
