One of My Favourite Soups

Hi again.

I enjoy soups all year round and unless you are not like me, I think you will also enjoy making this soup for either your lunch or dinner. I actually came across this recipe from a youtube channel by Kalel. She follows a vegan lifestyle and therefore this soup does not require any animal products and I can confirm that it is delicious!

 

Spicy Sweet Potato Stew

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • I can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 carrots chopped into chunks
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 cup of chopped red bell pepper
  • I can of black beans
  • 1 cup of red lentils (I did not use this but the recipe recommends)
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar
  • a few drop of lemon juice
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • black pepper

 

Step 1:

In a large pot, boil the vegetable broth, water, diced tomatoes, carrots and 1/2 of the sweet potato. Cook for about 15 minutes.

 

Step 2:

You can do this step while the above step is cooking. In a frying pan, fry the onion, garlic and red pepper for about 10 minutes.

 

Step 3:

Once the ingredients have cooked in the pot, put into a blender and blend until smooth. You can add water to dilute or reach your desired consistency.

 

Step 4:

Next, combine the blended ingredients and the frying pan ingredients back into the same pot.

 

Step 5:

Cook on low heat. Add the brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, cayenne and black pepper. Then next add the leftover sweet potato chunks, black beans and red lentils.

 

Step 6:

Cook on low for 1 hour.
