African Sweet Potato Soup
(recipe veganized from an old issue of Fitness magazine)
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon canola oil
4 cups vegetable stock
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 medium russet potato, cubed, skin on
3/4 cup diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter (I used smooth)
1. Saute onion and garlic in a medium soup pot with the oil for about five minutes or until onion becomes soft. Try not to burn the garlic.
2. Pour in the vegetable stock along with the diced potatoes, tomatoes, and all of the spices. Then, add in the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes on medium heat until the potatoes become tender. Carefully ladle into bowls and serve with buttered bread or a side salad.

Nutrition Facts per Serving
The nutrition info for a third of this recipe doesn't look that bad at all. I was expecting it to contain much more carbs and calories from all the potatoes and peanut butter! I'm going to have some leftovers for dinner tonight with a side of toasted, buttered bread. Yum. Oh, and Rick wants to watch a scary movie! I'm so down. Just got to be careful not to spill hot soup everywhere during the scary scenes.
