Sweet Potato Soup

It has been one rainy weekend.

We ventured out into the rain yesterday, but today we decided to stay at home. And on days like today, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of soup, a blanket, and a good movie.

Ingredients

  1. 4-6 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  2. 1 yellow onion, diced
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 2 large sweet potatoes, baked with skin (you can remove the skin after baking if you want a super creamy soup)
  5. 2 heaping tsp curry powder
  6. 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (omit if you don’t like things too spicy!)
  7. 1/2 tsp cumin
  8. A sprinkle of cinnamon – about 3 shakes of the bottle
  9. Chopped cilantro (garnish)
  10. Chopped peanuts (garnish)
  11. Salt to taste

Directions

  1. Steam and saute the onions and garlic, adding stock as needed to prevent sticking. Meanwhile, bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave or the oven.
  2. Place sweet potatoes, garlic, onions, spices into the pot. Add 4 cups vegetable broth and simmer for a few minutes, until all of the ingredients are tender.
  3. Puree with a hand blender until smooth, adding more broth to achieve desired consistency.
  4. Once the soup is pureed, bring it to a simmer to warm it through. Top each bowl with cilantro and chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
