  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes yam, cut in small cubed
  • 1 medium carrot sliced
  • 6 cups fish stock

  • 1 tablespoon ground fennel
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 – 9 tablespoons Plain Greek Yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice optional
  • Parsley to decorate


  • In a medium pan, heat oil, add onion and let cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Add garlic to mix and stir to incorporate. (Do not let garlic burn) Add fish stock, sweet potatoes, and carrot and bring to a boil. Cover and let cook for 25 to 30 minutes until both sweet potatoes and carrot are cooked. Remove from heat and let cool for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Add sweet potatoes and carrot mixture in a blender and blend until smooth. (You may have to do this in 2 batches). Add mixture back to the pan and heat up. Add fish, ground fennel, ground nutmeg and lemon juice if using. Bring to a boil and cover and let cook for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat. In a small bowl, mix yogurt with a little of the soup mixture until well incorporated. Add yogurt and soup mixture to pot and stir slowly to mix but do not boil. When yogurt mixture is completely mixed, remove from heat. Decorate with parsley and serve.


If you do have fish stock, mix 6 cups of warm water with 4 - 5 tablespoon of fish seasoning.
