The sweet potato and spring onion soup is much more than a flavourful appetiser. It is actually a sumptuous meal in its own right. Energy-giving and wholesome sweet potatoes are combined with aromatic spring onions in this delectable soup, which gathers its rich texture and mouth-feel from a cuppa of milk and oodles of fresh cream. It is a wonderful selection for kids as well as elders as it not only satiates hunger but also gives enough energy to handle the action-packed day.
