This idea came to me in a daydream.
I was sitting in my Uni lecture (last lecture of the term..whoop whoop!) and I was thinking about how I’d never made sweet potato soup before,
I think my obsession with soup started when after I made that amazing butternut squash soup ..which obviously gave me a slight obsession with developing creams (hence my basil & vanilla cream creation)..but I don’t think obsession is a bad thing, if it leads to something productive..
Basil is bitter. My initial thought was to add sugar, but then I thought the flavour would just clash to much with the sweetness of the soup, so instead of sweet…
I decided to go with fragrant..and if you know me at all, you’ll know I’m never lacking in vanilla ..I felt like vanilla had a shy sweetness to it that could offer unique flavour ..& boy was I right
It tasted & looked like a daydream
