…go for sweet potato soup;)
I know you were expecting a crazy indulging something here, but I somehow managed to quit sugar…and I feel great.
Since I started this blog mostly baking I had to take a break while I made a somehow natural transition to whole foods, still in transition actually 🙂
I am ready to share my new way of cooking that gives me so much more energy!
Lately I have been traveling (London again & again) and couldn’t stick to my diet the way I would have liked to, so to make it easier to get back on track I have sweet veggies. Does the trick and is really tasty & you know me….it’s easy.
It’s all about bringing out the simple and delicious taste of that potato.
I start by heating one onion in ghee (clarified butter, you can go for normal butter too, just don’t heat olive oil that doesn’t come as a special heatable version) or flavorless coconut oil. I add a couple of washed and chopped sweet potatoes cover with water and let them boil until soft. I add only salt & pepper but you could go for vegetable stock instead of plain water for the cooking. I tend to use too little water and have to add more (hot) water when I blend the potatoes to get a soup & not a “purée”.
Blend & enjoy
Add some quinoa or rice to make it a more complete dish.
It’s so easy I’m embarrassed to write it down…it’s heaven for all of you who crave something sweet & nourishing!
I’ll have my soup & am off to the movies…”Love is all you need” & good food I say!
