Sweet Potato and Peanut Butter Bisque

Submitted by: LITTLE_NIKKE

Introduction

Fabulous African soup. Uses tofu to bulk up the protein content, but omit for a more traditional version. Fabulous African soup. Uses tofu to bulk up the protein content, but omit for a more traditional version.

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 large Onion
    4 cloves Garlic, 4 cloves
    2 Tbs Ginger Root
    1/2 tsp Allspice, 1 tsp
    1.5 tsp Cumin
    1.5 tsp Corriander
    1 tsp cayenne
    1 15 oz can whole tomatoes (add juice too), chopped
    6 cups vegetable broth
    1.5 lbs Sweet potatoes
    1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
    1 package soft silkenTofu
    1 tsp salt, 1 tsp


Tips

If your spices are old (6 months +) you'll want to double the spice amounts. I always purchase spices as seeds and grind them myself as needed in a dedicated coffee grinder (i.e. I don't use it for coffee!)


Directions

Heat oil in a large pot (dutch oven) and soften onions until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another two minutes, then add ginger and all the spices. Cook until fragrant.
Add tomatoes and their juice, vegetable broth, peanut butter and cubed sweet potatoes and simmer until potatoes are cooked (about 25 minutes). Take off heat.
For a chunky soup: take about half of it out and blend with tofu in a blender, then pour it back in the pot and stir.
For a smooth bisque add the tofu directly to the pot and blend with a stick blender.
In either case, add salt to taste (I like about 1 tsp for the pot)
