Recipe // Caribbean Sweet Potato Chunky Soup


Caribbean Sweet Potato Chunky Soup 



Some call this a soup some call this a stew, I'll call this a chunky soup just to meet everyone in the middle. This recipe is one of my latest favourites, it's nourishing, healthy and most of all satisfying. I have tried to keep as much raw as possible to keep the nutrients into the soup, the blender stages allow the food to be cooked for less time. 

Ingredients
♥2 medium onions 
♥2 teaspoons olive oil
♥3 garlic cloves
♥2 teaspoons ground ginger (ideally fresh)
♥2 teaspoons ground coriander
♥1 teaspoon ground turmeric 
♥1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
♥1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
♥5 cups vegetable broth
♥2 cups sweet potato cubed. 
♥1 cup coconut milk
♥1 cup diced tomatoes (drained)
♥1 cup black eyes peas (drained)
♥squeeze of lime juice
♥1 medium broccoli (the mini sized ones)
♥1 medium cauliflower (the mini sized ones)

Directions
♥ Soak your black eyed peas for 24 hours or drain the juice from tinned black eyed beans. 
♥ In a pot add your beans, sweet potato and broth and boil until the sweet potato has softened
♥ Now add the garlic, onion, spices and oil into the blender and blend until it is smooth and add to the soup mix. 
♥ Add your tinned, drained tomatoes to the soup mix. 
♥ Turn down the heat so it simmers for around 10 minutes and then take off the heat. 
♥ Slowly add in the coconut milk stirring continuously. 
♥ Finish with a squeeze of lime. 

You can now at this stage eat this as a soup, if you prefer the chunky stew then follow the next step. 

♥ In a blender add your broccoli and cauliflower and blend until it resembles rice like this, add this mixture to your soup and mix.  


Your chunky soup will now look like this
