Preparation 2



  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and leave to sweat for about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger. Stir to mix the ingredients and leave for a further 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes, stir to combine and add the stock. Bring to the boil, and then reduce the heat and leave to simmer for about 15 minutes until the potatoes have softened.
    Add the tofu and coriander, and then blend the soup until smooth, using a hand-held blender or food processor.

    Ladle the soup into warmed bowls and sprinkle with coriander.
