    Carrot and Mango Soup? Who would have thought?

    One of the things that happen to you when you are a bit housebound.
    You improvise.
    I had a look in my fridge and found a couple of carrots, a kumara (sweet potato) and 1/2  mango
    I make Carrot and Orange Soup frequently. That is a good match
    "Why not Carrot and Mango?"
    It really was delicious and will be a keeper in our family.
    I decided that I would also add a potato just for a little extra body
    This amount served 3 people

    50 gms unsalted butter
    1 med onion peeled and chopped
    2 carrots washed and chopped
    1 small Kumara, peeled and chopped
    1 med potato peeled and chopped
    1/2 mango peeled and chopped
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon ground coriander
    1.5 Litres Chicken stock

    Garnish  (optional)
    Chopped parsley 
    Little Cream

    Melt the butter in a pot
    Add onions  season with S & P
    and cook till translucent not brown
    Add the carrots, kumara and potato
    Season again with S & P and coriander

    Gently cook until they start to soften a little
    About 5 minutes
    Cover with Chicken stock

    Bring to boil and simmer for about 30 minutes
    Till Vege are tender

    Transfer to a blender
    Add Mango to the mix
    Whiz till smooth
    Back into pot
    Serve and garnish with chopped Parsley and a tablespoon of cream

    Guaranteed excellent, with some toast or as we did with some fresh Ciabatta
