Sweet Potato & Peanut Soup

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Lately I have been on an Asian kick and tonight I made a delicious soup (Recipe found through Pinterest, HERE.), its called Sweet Potato & Peanut Soup! It's amazing, one because it tastes pretty darn good and two because after a long exhausting day it was easy and quick to put together.

This recipe yields about 6 cups and goes well with jasmine rice. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Shopping List:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 small onions diced, about 1.5 cups
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 to 2-inch chunks
  • 1 13-ounce can “lite” coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1.5 tablespoons lime juice
  • Chopped cilantro, and chopped peanuts for garnish
Heat oil in a large soup pot. Add the onion and garlic and cook (stirring often) until onions begin to get soft. Now add the celery, sweet potato, and broth. Cover and increase the heat to high to bring it to a boil.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes until potatoes are soft. 

Next Puree half of the soup in a food processor or blender and add back to the pot. Puree the coconut milk and peanuts until smooth and add to the soup along with the lime juice. Give everything a good stir over low heat to warm thoroughly. Do not boil. Serve alongside rice and garnish with cilantro and chopped peanuts.
