I have been itching to use this,

I finally ‘made’ the opportunity!  I was trying to finish off all my sweet potatoes from the winter ( I had 2 left).  While flipping through my favorite cookbook, Earthbound Cook, I found this yummy recipe!

Then add the curry.  I threw in some cinnamon, cumin and allspice also.

Next throw in the potatoes and the veggie broth.  Bring it to a boil.

Once it boils, turn it down and let it simmer until the sweet potatoes are soft.

Doesn’t it look pretty????

While it was cooking, I decided to be creative with our salad.  I just simply added grapes, goat cheese and oranges with spinach leaves.

Now the sweet potatoes are tender.

Final step is to dump it in your food processor or use an immersion blender.  I do not have one of those.  I’m still in love with my food processor!

To add  a little something extra, top with plain yogurt.  It adds a great taste!

Our soup and salad evening was fabulous.  I know that the soup tasted better because I used my new pot!

1.  Heat the oil in a large pot, medium heat.  Add onions and carrots.  Cook until tender.
