It’s that time of year again! Time for soup, cialis buy sweaters and staying indoors. I love fall food – the flavours send me to my happy place. This recipe is one of my go-to soups – it’s basically autumn in a bowl. It’s always a crowd-pleaser and I’m constantly writing it down for people. Perhaps you could put it on this year’s Thanksgiving menu…just saying.
(The veggies were GIANT at the grocery store – thanks GMO.)
1 Extra Large or 2 Medium Sweet Potatoes
4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Onion, search Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic, find Diced
1 inch Ginger Root, Diced
1-2 Medium Carrots, Chopped
1 c. Fennel, Chopped
2 Tbsp. Curry Powder
1 Tbsp. Garam Masala ( I use this recipe)
4 c. Chicken or Veggie Broth
1 can Coconut Milk
Salt to Taste
Toasted Almonds, Walnuts, or Pecans
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes into 2-inch rounds and place on baking sheets. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for about 1 hour or until tender – flipping halfway through.
- In a large saucepan, heat 2 of olive oil over medium heat. Saute onion, carrots and fennel for about 5 minutes. Add ginger and fry for 30 seconds. Then add garlic and fry for 30 more seconds.
- Add curry powder and garam masala, stir constantly for another 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
- Scoop out the sweet potato flesh, discarding the skins, and add to the saucepan. Stir until the potatoes are evenly coated with the spices.
- Return to heat, add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Set heat to medium-low and cover. Let simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
- Remove soup from heat and cool slightly – then blend. I use an immersion blender but any blender will do!
- Once blended, return to heat and add coconut milk. Stir and heat until warm. Add salt to taste.
- Remove from heat, fill up your bowl and add desired toppings. Enjoy!
Another nice thing about this recipe is that it’s totally versatile. You can cater it to your own taste. Substitute celery for the fennel or add a couple of granny smith apples. And don’t forget to play with the toppings! It’s all good. I could seriously eat this soup on the daily. Hope you enjoy it!
Peace and Love,
