  • This sweet potatoes and carrot soup combines well and produce a vibrant orange coloured broth. Full of goodness, the sweet potato contains huge amounts of beta carotene, vitamin C and Vitamin E, making it one of the best anti cancer foods.
  • Also this particular recipe has ‘No bits’ for the fussy eaters.
