Spicy Sweet Potato Apple Sauce Soup

Spicy Sweet Potato Apple Sauce Soup

Lately, I have been on a sweet potato jag; had it with butter, had it with peanut butter, and it was only a matter of time before I turned it into a soup with my top 2 favorite spices.

cheffIf you are not used to spicy food, consider using half the ginger. The cooking mantra that I’ve come to know well is ” You can always add more, but you cannot take it away”.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4):

  • 2 med sweet potatoes (~ 10-13 oz each)
  • 1.5 cup apple sauce
  • 0.5 cup coconut milk ( or reg. milk 2% or whole,…)
  • 1 med onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 med garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.5- 2 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp Madras curry (or any other)
  • oil

Time~     Prep-      Cook: 30 min

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork a couple of times. Place in an oven-safe dish and bake for 1.5 hrs.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pan over medium heat, saute the sliced onion in enough oil ’till it browns (~ 10 min).
  3. Add the minced garlic and ginger and saute longer (~ 1-2 min).
  4.  Add the curry and stir ’till fragrant (~ 1 min). Add more oil or water to prevent the spices from burning.
  5. Mix in the apple sauce along with a bit of water and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before moving to a large bowl to puree with an immersion blender.
  7. Add in the cooked sweet potato and coconut milk and gently pure to get a creamy consistency.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning, add more apple sauce or another sweetner for a sweeter taste.
  9. Add more coconut milk/water to reach desired consistency.

Enjoy!
