Sweet Potato Almond Soup


Last night, I created a deliciously simple sweet potato and almond soup that warmed me up after my chilly walk home.  Let’s just say that it hit the spot and paired perfectly with a side of grilled vegetables and tofu smothered with organic tomato sauce and sprinkled with nutritional yeast…delicious is an understatement.

Dig in, this is a tasty protein-packed soup with a nice dose of beta carotene that is sure to fill you up (and warm you up) on a chilly March evening.

Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups Greek plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1 tsp. all spice
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • ½ cup Krema Almond Butter
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper
  • Topping: fresh cilantro

Directions

  • Prick sweet potatoes with a fork to create air pockets. Place into the microwave for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat oil.  Add onion and cook until they begin to brown, approximately 3 minutes. Add garlic; stir for 2 minutes.  Add lime juice, all spice, chili powder, and sea salt and pepper.  Cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • Peel sweet potatoes and chop into small chunks.  Place into a food processor along with the vegetable broth, Greek yogurt and Krema Almond Butter; puree until smooth.  Add the puree to the pot and mix well.
  • Transfer to serving dishes and garnish with cilantro.
  • Enjoy!
