DelectablePlanet's picture
Eating blended soup is a great way to get in loads of nutritious vegetables. One serving of this soup provides more than your daily recommended intake of beta-carotene.
  Vegetable broth 4 1⁄4 Cup (68 tbs)
  Diced onion 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Curry powder 2 Teaspoon
  Sweet potatoes 5 Cup (80 tbs), chopped
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Plain non dairy yogurt/Tofu sour cream 22 Tablespoon (1 Cup Plus 6 Tablespoon)
  Minced fresh cilantro 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Heat 1/4 cup of the broth in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and curry powder and cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the remaining 4 cups of broth, the sweet potatoes, and the water. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

Transfer one-third of the sweet potato mixture to a blender and process until smooth. Repeat the procedure with the remaining sweet potato mixture, processing it in batches. Return the blended mixture to the pot and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, add 1 cup of the yogurt, and stir until blended.

Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the remaining yogurt and garnish with the optional cilantro.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Curried Sweet Potato Soup will keep for up to 3 days.
