- Carrot, swede and coconut soup with a…
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 banana shallots, diced
- 1 lemongrass stalk, chopped
- 1 red chilli, desseded and chopped
- 2 lime leaves
- 400g carrot, peeled and diced
- 400g swede, peeled and diced
- 500ml veg stock
- 2 tins coconut cream
- 1 drizzle vegetable oil, for frying
- 2 banana shallots, thinly sliced for the topping
- 5 eggs, 1 beaten
- 50g plain flour, for the toppings
- 25g panko breadcrumbs
- 20g sesame seeds , for the toppings
- 1 handful fresh herbs
Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan on a medium heat and add the shallot, lemongrass, chilli, lime leaves, carrot and swede. Sweat the veg, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins.
Add the stock, 150ml water and the coconut cream, bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 mins until the veg is tender.
Meanwhile, heat a little veg oil in a frying pan and add the shallots. Fry gently for 8-10 mins until they are golden brown, then remove to some kitchen paper to crisp up.
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add the 4 whole eggs. Boil for 6 mins and then immediately run under cold water to stop them cooking. Peel carefully once you can handle them.
Place the flour in one bowl, the beaten egg in another and combine the panko and sesame seeds in a third. Roll the peeled eggs in the flour, then in the beaten egg and then in the panko mix.
Heat 4cm of veg oil in a saucepan to 180°C (or until a piece of panko crumb sizzles). Use a slotted metal spoon to carefully lower the eggs into the oil and cook for 2-3 mins until golden brown all over. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.
Blitz the soup with a stick blender, season to taste and then serve in four bowls.
Slice each egg in half and place on the soup. Scatter some of the crispy shallots on top with the fresh herbs to add freshness.
