1 kilo (2lb 3oz) carrots, chopped
2 or 3 sweet potatoes, chopped
1.4 litres (2 1⁄2 pts) water

Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion. Sauté for about ten minutes or until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and sauté for one minute.
Add the carrots, sweet potatoes and water.
Bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the carrots and sweet potatoes are very soft.
