  • Bruise the cardamom pods and shake out the seeds, then roughly crush them with a pestle and mortar.
  • Peel and chop the onion and sweet potato, peel and finely grate the ginger, then peel and crush the garlic.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan over a low heat. Add the onion and a small pinch of sea salt and cook for 10 minutes, or until soft and sweet, stirring often.
  • Stir in the sweet potato, ginger, garlic and crushed cardamom seeds. Cook for 2 minutes, before adding the coconut milk.
  • Let it simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, then stir in the stock. Cover with a lid, and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Liquidise the soup with a stick blender until smooth, then season to taste with a pinch of salt, black pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
