We are fully immersed in the newness of spring here in California but in light of the snow storms back east I thought I'd put up one of my go-to cozy meals - soup! Canned soups are boring but when it's cold outside nobody wants to go grocery shopping so the fewer the ingredients, the better. This is another meal that can be made in advance to have around or freeze.
- 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 4 carrots, peeled and diced
- 1 large or 2 small apples, peeled and diced
- large onion
- ¾ teaspoon curry powder
- a sprinkle of thyme
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 cup water
Sauté the onion (with olive oil) in a medium size pot until translucent. Add curry powder and thyme. Add sweet potato, carrots and apple cubes to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes. Add the liquid and simmer until the vegetables are soft. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth adding more liquid if needed. Serve with a slice of toasted whole grain bread.
