I know I'm always posting soup recipes, but they're just so easy to make and I love how you can use so many different great ingredients in them.
For busy parents, soup is a great way to get veggies and good stuff in your kids without them knowing ;)
I was searching for a sweet potato soup recipe yesterday and ended up making a concoction of my own. And it was great.
Plus, check out this factoid from the 'internet' ;)
Why should we wait for Thanksgiving to enjoy sweet potatoes?? They should be a staple in our diets every day!
Sweet Potato Soup (Gluten free, Vegan)
What you need:
3 cups of peeled, diced sweet potatoes
3 cups water
1/4 can coconut milk or about 1/2 cup
1/2 to 1 tbsp. ginger peeled and finely diced (optional)
2 tbsp. white sugar or brown sugar (I used white)
1 tbsp. honey or agave nectar (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
Bring water to a boil and boil the potatoes and ginger for about 20-30 minutes.
Add the potato mixture to a blender with all other ingredients and blend.
***Ginger is a very strong flavor so if you don't use it, the soup should still be tasty. I like it though. If you're not used to it, maybe start with only 1/2 tbsp and go from there.
***You can also use as little or as much coconut milk as you like. I used about 1/2 cup. Has to be from the can though.
