Here`s what you need:
Sweet Potatoes-2lbs peeled, rough chop
Onion-2 cups white or yellow, rough chop
Ginger-1/2 cup peeled and minced
Garlic-5-6 cloves minced
Olive Oil
Chicken or Veggie Stock or water-8 cups
Lime-2 juiced

Cayenne Pepper- 1-2 Tsp ground
Salt to taste

 

Here`s the base.
Peel and roughly chop your sweet potatoes & Onion. Peel and mince the ginger and garlic.

 

 

 

Veggies Prepped

 

 

 

 

Heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat in a stock pot. Add the onions, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.

 

 

 

 

Add the ginger and garlic, stir and cook another minute or so until fragrant.

 

 

 

Add your stock or water and the sweet potatoes. Increase heat to high, bring to a boil & reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are very soft.

 

 

 

Remove from heat & let cool for a few minutes.

 

 

 

Working in batches add the contents of the stock pot to a blender. Blend until completely smooth. Always be very careful blending anything hot. Don`t fill the blender cup more than 1/2 full and make sure to remove the center piece of the lid. Cover with a kitchen towel.
