Vegan Sweet Potato Peanut Soup (adapted from VegNews)

Submitted by: SUNNYH99

Introduction

This delicious African-influenced soup was featured in the January-February 2011 issue of VegNews magazine. I added more sweet potato, garlic, vegetable broth, and kidney beans than the recipe called for, doubling the yield.

  • I'm not a fan of spinach or kidney beans, so instead of putting those in, I sauteed carrots and celery with the onions and garlic. I also used pre-cooked, pureed sweet potatoes. This soup was SO GOOD that two days later, I made it again! I think I could eat the whole pot at once if I let myself! - 11/11/12

  • Another great one to add to my cookbook. I will sustitute a different bean for the kidney beans as I don't like them. I Probably use garbanzo beans. - 2/12/11
