Moroccan spiced roast vegetable soup is spicy, delicious and filled with autumn flavours. It’s super quick to make and is fab for an easy weeknight meal served with toasted cheese sandwiches, or maybe bottled in a flask for a chilly autumn picnic.
To make the Moroccan spiced roast vegetable soup simply chop a small butternut squash into wedges, no need to peel, scrub and chop some sweet potatoes and carrots. Again don’t bother peeling either.
Toss the chunky vegetables in some garlic infused olive oil and 3 heaped teaspoons of harissa paste. If you don’t like things too spicy, opt for less harissa. Pop the tray straight into the cold oven and whack the temperature up to 200C. Leave them to roast for around 30-40 minutes or until they’re tender. If you want to reduce cooking times remember to chop the vegetables into smaller wedges.
Once cooked, tip them into a food processor and as you blend, pour hot vegetable stock into blender via the feeder tube. Continue until you have a thick soupy consistency.
The Moroccan spiced roast vegetable soup is delicious served with a swirl of Greek yogurt and a scattering of freshly chopped mint and parsley, maybe a pinch of chilli flakes if you like things really spicy.
