With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, most of us have schedules that are jam-packed and not a lot of time to cook dinner. This is when I resort to my quickest, easiest recipes. This simple soup is very easy to prepare and is also something a bit "off the beaten path" with its African-style blend of curry, tomatoes and peanut butter. This is one of my family's favourite soups and it goes together in a flash. If you don't have any sweet potatoes on hand, just add more carrot. It will still be fabulous!
Ingredients:1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, grated
1 sweet potato, peeled and grated
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock (you can use water if you don't have any stock)
1 cup crushed tomatoes
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
chopped peanuts and green onions for garnish (optional)
Instructions:In a large saucepan, saute the garlic, onion, grated carrot and sweet potato in oil until tender. Add stock, tomatoes, peanut butter,curry powder and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 10-15 minutes. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and green onions, if desired. Serves 4.
