I tested the Sweet Potato Coconut Soup for Catherine (http://cathweber.blogspot.com/) and let me tell you, It's delicious! With a rich, spicy flavor and smooth texture it could either dress up a holiday meal or be used as an everyday treat! I can even see using it as a sauce for pasta. It was ready in less than 30 minutes and was simple to prepare. A sure winner!
Since I actually *gasp* measured my ingredients, I had about half a sweet potato left. I diced it up and sauted it in a tiny bit of olive oil with cumin seed, an onion and a poblano chile til the sweet potato was done, then added my homemade habanero sauce, (This stuff is sooo good! The next time I make it, I'll write down what I do and post the recipe. I make huge batches and freeze it) some of the veggie brown rice and some black beans. I warmed it through and at the end, stirred in a bunch of cilantro. We'll eat this as is as well as use it for taco and burrito filling.
Can you tell that our family loves black beans and Mexican food? I make around 2 quarts of salsa every week and we eat it all. My 14 year old son would eat an entire bag of blue corn chips and a quart of salsa in one sitting if I let him.
