Ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 large red onion, diced
  3. 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  4. 2 stalks celery, sliced
  5. 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  6. 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered, and sliced thickly
  7. 1 can (400g) diced tomatoes
  8. 4 cups vegetable stock
  9. ½ cup maple syrup
  10. 2 chipotles (smoke-dried jalapeno)
  11. 2 teaspoons sea salt
Instructions
  1. In a heavy 5.5 litre stockpot over medium heat, heat the olive oil.
  2. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the celery and carrots, and cook until softened.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and stock. Bring to a boil.
  4. Turn down the heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, or until all the vegetables are softened.
  5. Add the maple syrup, chipotles, and salt.
  6. Purée until completely smooth, either with an immersion blender or in smaller batches in a regular blender.
Notes
  1. Tip: Never fill a blender more than halfway when puréeing hot foods; you'll avoid some painful burns!
