A tasty soup with lots a sweetness and delicious cod. Garnish the soup with thin strips of carrot and some roasted nuts or seeds, if you have some to hand. Enjoy!


1. Peel the carrots and sweet potatoes and roughly dice. Save a little carrot for garnish. Finely chop the onion and cook the veggies for a few minutes in some olive oil with curry and cumin. You don't want the veggies to brown, just get everything nice and fragrant.

2. Add water and stock cube and bring the pot to the boil. Let the soup simmer for approx. 15 minutes, or until the veggies are fully tender. In the meantime roast the pumpkin seeds on a pan and put them aside. Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper and cook them on the same pan in a little olive oil.

3. Blend the soup using a handblender or regular blender until completely smooth. If you're using a regular blender, pour the soup back into the pot and season with salt, pepper and some lime juice. Serve the soup with fried cod, some thin carrot slices, skyr, and some roasted pumpkin seeds or nuts. Dip some warm baguette in your soup, and slurp away!

4. Enjoy!


If the kids aren't fully on board with big pieces of fish, you can mash it a bit with a fork. But start with a small piece and see how it goes!Do remember to never fill the blender more than halfway when blending hot liquids, as they can "explode" when the blender is switched on.Start slow and carefully turn up the speed. Cover with a dishtowel instead of the lid. If you don't have a blender, just use a handblender directly in the pot. But give it a proper go! You want the soup as smooth and lump-free as possible.
