Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Serves 6 – 45 minutes total

This is a real crowd pleasing dish. Everyone from my husband to my 4 year old loved this soup. I think everyone had seconds even. Hubby and the kids chose to top their soup with crackers like we do with split pea soup. It thickens it up and adds a little crunch.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper & Salt
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp Curry Paste (or powder)
  • 1 tsp Coriander
  • 8 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 3 Large Sweet Potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled and cut into 3/4” pieces
  • 2 Large Carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbs Optional toppers:
    • lime juice
    • cilantro leaves
    • toasted pumpkin seeds
    • pumpkin seed or olive oil

Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Saute onions with salt and pepper until translucent and soft. Stir in garlic, curry and coriander; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  2. Add stock, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are tender (about 20-25 minutes).
  3. Puree the soup in batches in a blender or with an immersion blender. Stir in lime juice.
  4. Serve topped with preferred toppers.

Curried Chicken

This simple dish packs some wonderful warm flavor.

Ingredients:

2 Chicken Breasts
3 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Red Curry Paste
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves

Instructions:

Mix 2 Tbs softened butter with curry paste, ginger and cloves in a small bowl. Melt 1 Tbs butter in a skillet and place the chicken in. Spread the spice mixture on top of the chicken and cover. Let cook for 5 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook, covered, for another 5 minutes. Flip the chicken again and let it cook until it’s done. This largely depends on the thickness of your chicken so if in doubt, use a thermometer.
