Special Saturday post! This was supposed to go out yesterday (per the normal M/W/F schedule), but there is some exciting stuff going on in the Natori household/corporate world that got things sidetracked. More on that next week.. ANYWAY….
Recently, I had lunch at one of my close friend’s house where she served me this velvety and incredible soup. So of course, I had to make it the very next week (best form of flattery). This soup is rich, *spicy*, creamy, and healthy. But without the guilt or dairy. YUP, idol Gwyneth Paltrow does it again (and again and again and again) with this winning soup recipe. A perfect and filling soup for cold winter months. Enjoy!
* 2 peeled and diced sweet potatoes (should be around 6 cups)
* 1 diced red onion
* 1 1/2 teaspoons of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
* 3/4 teaspoons of cumin
* 6 cups of vegetable / chicken broth
* 5 sprigs of cilantro
* salt and pepper to taste
I gave a bowl of soup to one of our doormen (Hi Fab! He also reads the blog #NoSecretsForMe) and he love love loved it. And Fab is an inspiration: just by a change in his food intake, he has lost about 100 pounds, he is literally HALF his size. And he was able to eat this and liked it! Which means, it is good for you but rich and delicious at the same time. Perfect for this freezing cold weather (in NYC). Hope you have a great weekend!
So colorful and healthy looking! I think Ill try this weekend ??
Let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do.
My secret is out..no more lurking in the darkness on the blog…I have to admit the soup is out of this world..so glad the recipe is out..I need to make this asap!!!
HA! Let me know how yours turns out! And give me other ideas of recipes to make that are healthy and easy!
I seriously want to try to make this. I’m a novice cook but this doesn’t look too difficult! And this will be perfect for a cold day like today!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
I’m a vegetarian, so this is a perfect soup for me to try! It looks filling and relatively easy to make. Yum!
Do you think this would also work with butternut squash in place of or half and half with the sweet potato?
