  • Leftover organic root vegetable peelings (I used sweet potato)
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • 1 onion
  • 1 Tablespoon of oil (I use olive or coconut)
  • Stock (or water)
  • Additional flavourings of choice (fresh or dried herbs and spices, honey, miso, maple, salt and pepper)



  • Chop the onion and saute in a medium-low heat until translucent (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the peelings and cook until they are starting to sizzle.
  • Pour in the coconut milk and then enough stock to just cover the peelings.
  • Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into a blender (or use a stick blender) and blend until smooth.
  • Pour back in the pan and add flavouring to taste.
  • Heat gently and serve.
