This savoury apple soup for two gets body from potatoes and a touch of heat from paprika. Float some cocktail prawns or crabmeat in each bowl to make it a main course.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium tart apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • ¾ cup diced peeled potato
  • 1⁄3 cup finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced celery, plus leaves for garnish
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp dried sage
  • Pinch of paprika, preferably hot Hungarian
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 400 ml reduced-salt chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp reduced-fat sour cream

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add apple, potato, onion and celery; cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, about five minutes. Stir in salt, sage, paprika and pepper; cook for 30 seconds. Pour in stock and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover, and gently simmer until the potato is tender when pierced with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.
Transfer the soup to a large blender or food processor, add sour cream and process until smooth. Garnish with celery leaves, if desired.

Quick Tip: To make eight soup croutons: Slice one-fourth of a whole-grain baguette into eight slices two-cm thick. Melt one tablespoon of butter; lightly brush on both sides of each slice. Place the slices on a baking sheet. Bake at 180°C until the edges are crisp and golden brown, 10 to 20 minutes, keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.
