If you serve this to guests it is odds on no-one will know what the soup is
based on. It is also a good bet that there will be takers for seconds.

Wash, peel and cut into chunks 500 g white-fleshed sweet potatoes and boil
until tender. Drain well and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan and saute 1 onion, finely
chopped, until transparent. Meanwhile pour boiling water over 4 tomatoes in
a bowl, leave for 2 minutes and drain. Peel the tomatoes (the skin will
pull off easily) and chop them. Add tomatoes to the onions and cook for
about 5 minutes until soft.

Into a blender or food processor put the sweet potatoes and the tomato
mixture. Add 300 ml beef stock and puree. Return to the saucepan, add a
further 600 ml stock, adjust seasoning to taste and reheat. Finely chop
half a bunch of coriander leaves. Ladle the soup into bowls and scatter the
coriander over the top.
