I only eat paleo these days and sometimes it's hard to find recipes that are fast and easy to make. One beautiful Arizona day, I realized I was really hungry, but was also totally unwilling to head to the store. So I scraped together what ingredients I had and was pretty pleased with the end result. This is the first recipe I've ever shared here, so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! Garnish with some Thai basil and avocado pieces (maybe even a little bacon) and enjoy the heck out of this thing!

  • Mix coconut milk, shallot, maple syrup, curry powder, sea salt, chili powder, and paprika into sweet potato mixture; cook and stir until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and blend soup with a hand blender until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

For vegetarian eaters, you could substitute the beef broth with vegetable broth.

For those avoiding sodium in their diet, choose a low-sodium broth and cut the 1 teaspoon of sea salt down to 1/2 teaspoon.

This soup was very rich in flavor and quite spicy which was a nice surprise. We used agave instead of the maple syrup. Read More

Yummy! The 20 minute prep time is very optimistic though 40 minutes is more realistic. Read More
