  5. Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onions, celery and carrots, cooking 4-6 minutes.
  6. Add garlic and sweet potatoes, cooking a further 4 minutes. Stir in spices and pour in stock.
  7. Bring soup to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer 15-18 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
  8. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth. Serve with fennel chips.
