Sweet Potato Soup

Growing up, I don’t remember ever eating a sweet potato.  I’m not sure why, but it was only recently that I started integrating them into my diet.  Sweet Potatoes are a great source of nutrition.  High in fiber, they are loaded with vitamins A and C, iron and calcium.  I hope you’ll give this soup a try, even if you’ve never had sweet potatoes before 🙂

Don’t be afraid of the peanut butter.  It adds a great depth to this soup, which originated in Africa.

Sweet Potato Soup

makes 8 servings

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 tb. vegetable oil

2 cups chopped onion

6 cups peeled and cubed sweet potato

Heat oil in soup pot over medium heat.  Add onion and saute until lightly browned, about 7 minutes.
